School Admissions Arrangements
As we are a Voluntary Aided (VA) Church School, the governing body is the admissions authority and is responsible for publishing the school's admissions policy each year. If you are thinking of applying for a place at Awliscombe, whether for entry into Reception at the start of your child's schooling, or for an "in-year" place at any time thereafter, you should look at the policy (copies below) that applies to the proposed year of entry to the school.
The Admissions Policy includes a supplementary information form which should be completed and signed by anyone who is seeking to establish admissions priority on the basis of faith. Please note that the school welcomes children from families of all faiths and none: the faith criterion only becomes relevant if there are more applications than places in a particular year and we have to apply the over-subscription criteria. See the Admissions Policy for more details.
While the governing body is responsible for admissions, all applications are handled, and places allocated, by Devon County Council through its Primary and In-Year Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes. You will need to complete and submit a Devon Common Application Form.
There is a separate process for application to Cygnets Nursery.
