If you are considering a place for your child here, we would be pleased to meet you and talk about what we have to offer. If you would like to arrange a visit, please do get in touch with us by phone, email or letter.

Although we are our own admissions authority and are responsible for setting our admissions policy and making decisions when an application is made to join us, we use the services of Devon County Council’s Admissions Service to manage applications on our behalf. For further information or advice about the admissions process, parents can call My Devon on 0345 155 1019 or visit www.devon.gov.uk/admissions.

Parents can apply for a Reception / Year 3 place here using their Local Authority Common Application Form (for children who live in the Devon County Council area, this is available at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline or by requesting a copy of the D-CAF1 / D-CAF2 from My Devon. Applications should be made up to the national closing date of 15 January – late applications may be at a disadvantage. Decisions are sent to parents around 16 April.

For admissions at any time after the start of the Reception year / Year 3, you can apply using the D-CAF, wherever your child lives. Copies are available from My Devon.

If you have any queries about your child joining our school, you can contact the LA for advice or Mrs Hobday, Lead Administrator here in school.

Admissions Policies

Copies of our policies are also available on Devon’s website, along with the Local Authority’s own policies for co-ordinating admissions applications at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionarrangements

The Appeals Process

Any parent who is refused admission has the right to an appeal that is independent of the school. We use the Independent Devon Admissions Appeal Panel to handle any appeals being made. For further information, please call My Devon or visit https://new.devon.gov.uk/educationandfamilies/school-information/apply-for-a-school-place/school-appeals

The Appeals Timetable

We are required to set out the appeals timetable for this round of admissions. This is set out in our admissions policy for 2017-18 and here:

Appeals at the normal round of admissions to Reception will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals on 15 May 2017. Where the application was not made in time for a decision to be made on 18 April 2017, they will be heard within that 40 day period or, if that is not possible, within 30 days of the appeal being lodged. In-year admission appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.

School Catchment Area

Parents may also be interested in the County’s map of school catchment areas.

Feniton Church of England (VA) Primary School is in the catchment for The Kings Secondary School.  This is the secondary school where the vast majority of the pupils transfer to at the end of year 6.
