Current Admissions Policies

The Learning Academy Partnership (South West) is the admissions authority for all academies within our Trust.

Current Policies
The policies below detail the admission arrangements for our academy and should be read in conjunction with the Primary and In Year Co-ordinated Schemes and other agreed policies of Devon Local Authority. All policies and procedures seek to comply with the requirements of the School Admissions Code. There will be 60 places available in September 2022.

Come and visit us
If you are interested in your child attending our academy, you are welcome to come in and visit us. You can arrange a visit on 01803 293040 or by emailing admissions@lapsw.org. Our Admissions Officer will be able to discuss admissions with you.

Applying to come here
Once you decide you would like a place in reception or at any other time after this, you must make a formal application, which can be made online at https://www.torbay.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/admissions/in-year/or by using the school application form below.

For the normal round intake into our academy, children are offered places to start in Reception 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.

The Local Authority
Torbay Council publishes information about admissions, application and appeals process. This is at https://www.torbay.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/admissions/.

The appeals process is detailed at https://www.torbay.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/admissions/admissions-appeals/

Our Admissions Policies
You can find our admissions policies below – we review the academy policy annually and may make changes if we feel this would be in the best interests of the academy and our community.

Each academic year has its own policy document, with details about how to apply for a place in our academy from the start of Reception through to Year 6. These are our determined policies. If you have any comments regarding the policies, you can contact admissions@lapsw.org or schoolsadmissionpolicy-mailbox@devon.gov.uk.
