Admissions Arrangements

The admission arrangements detailed on this webpage apply to Yealmpton Primary School.  Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST) is the admissions authority, responsible for the admissions policies and decisions on applications for admission. We have an admissions policy for each academic year. They are written to comply with the School Admissions Code and School Admissions Appeals Code. We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council.

      Applying to come here

Once you decide you would like a place in Foundation or at any other time after this ('In Year' admissions), you must make a formal application. You can do this by applying to the Local Authority and not direct to the school. Applications can be made online at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline by using the forms available at http://devon.cc/applicationforms 

The Local Authority

Devon County Council publishes information about admissions and its own policies to support the admissions application and appeals process. This is at www.devon.gov.uk/admissions

For the Normal Round intake into school, children are offered places to start in Foundation at the beginning of the September term after their fourth birthday. Children who are admitted to a vacancy at any time after this point are called 'In-Year' Admissions.
