Admissions

If you currently live in Devon or are about to move to Devon, you can apply for a place at Teignmouth Community School Mill Lane by clicking here.

Your child must be in full time education at the beginning of the term following his or her fifth birthday. This would be at a school unless you decide to educate at home, in which case you should contact Devon County Council on 0345 155 1019 for further advice.

To arrange a tour of our school, please contact Mr Andrew Webber via email andrew.webber@teignmouth.devon.sch.uk .

If it is a nursery place you require, please contact Mrs Kerry Elver via email kerry.elver@teignmouth.devon.sch.uk .

Our admissions policy can be found by clicking here.

 

Consultation on our Admissions policy for 2022-23

Consultation on our Admissions policy for 2022-23

Below you will see a link to our proposed admissions policy for 2022-23. We are consulting on this between 1 November and 8 January and invite any parent or other person with an interest in our admission arrangements to read the policy and make any comments you wish. You will see where there are changes, the text is in red – either something we propose to add or, if it has a line through it, something we propose to remove.

One of the proposals is to add children who have been adopted from state care outside of England to our oversubscription criterion 1. This is in anticipation that the Department for Education will require this change for all schools as it has just consulted on changes to the School Admissions Code. It is possible that the Department’s timescales may mean that the Code is not amended before the end of February, when we have to formally set our policy. If that is the case, we may have to determine our policy without that change and then alter it later in spring or summer. We are bringing it to your attention though as a change in policy that we expect to have to introduce.

Other than changes in red and dates moving forward a year, the way our policy will work is the same as in the previous year, 2021-22 which you can also see below.

If you have any comments, you can make them to Devon County Council which is co-ordinating the consultation. Further information is at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionarrangements. You will be able to view the proposed policies for all state-funded schools in Devon and the Local Authorities policies there too.

The consultation ends on 8 January and all policies must be determined by 28 February and published in the same places by 15 March.
