'NORMAL ROUND': Reception-Place Applications for a September Start
When can I apply?
On-time Reception admission applications for 4-year old children are open from mid-November to mid-January for a start the following September.
How do I apply?
Online is best. https://new.devon.gov.uk/educationandfamilies/school-information/apply-for-a-school-place/apply-for-a-primary-school-place . Any problems with this, please contact the school or try phoning 0345 155 1019 ( Admissions team). Please do not apply to the school directly as we do not handle RECEPTION admissions for September starts.
When will I hear if my child has a place?
Devon CC will inform you by letter. The exact date you will hear will be confirmed soon, but it will be sometime in mid-April for a standard September start.
Can I appeal?
If you are unhappy with the decision made contact the Devon Admissions Team on 0345 155 1019 as soon as possible after initial notification.
WHEN YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN OFFER OF A PLACE
The administrator will contact you and ask you to complete various forms which are essential for us to admit your child on to our school roll. These may be sent to you in the post and will need to be returned to the school office.
