If you are interested in your child joining us, either in our main intake into Reception or at any other time, please do come along and visit us. It would be preferable if you could make an appointment by contacting the school of your choice – any of our school administrators will be able to help you.
If we can make a place available to you then we will. If not, you would have the right to appeal to a panel that is independent of the school and we would place your child’s name on a waiting list for vacancies.
If we have a vacancy then all children are welcome to join us. If we are oversubscribed, we still welcome all children but give priority to particular groups e.g. children who are looked after by the Local Authority, children with an exceptional need to come to our school, children who live in our catchment, children with siblings already here, children of members of staff and children who live closer to us. We only use these oversubscription criteria when we are oversubscribed. For full details of our admission arrangements, please look at our Admissions Policies.
We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council which help parents to make applications for admission to school. Parents can apply through Devon for in-year admissions and through the Local Authority where the child lives for the normal round of admissions.
For information on applying for your child to attend Ipplepen Primary School, please visit Devon County Council’s Admissions & Transfers page. Use the link the below or alternatively contact the Education Helpline on 0845 155 1019.
If you are living within Devon, Devon County Council will send you details on how to apply during the first week of November. If you have not received this please contact your local primary school or the Admissions team.
Please apply on time! Late applications will be accepted but cannot be considered above timely ones where schools are oversubscribed.
Please see our Policies page where you can find our admissions documents.
