Admissions

St Michael's CofE Primary Academy is responsible for the admissions policies and decisions on applications for admission to the school.  Applications are, however, made through Devon County Council who also hold the school waiting list.  Our admission arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code and School Admissions Appeals Code.  Information on how to apply for a place at St Michael’s for your children is available at www.devon.gov.uk/admissions .  Devon policies are available at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionarrangements

 

Children are offered places to start in Foundation 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.

 

You can find our admissions policies below - we review and consult on them annually and may make changes for  future years if we feel this would be in the best interest of the Academy and our community.

 

If you are interested in your child attending St Michael's, you are welcome to come in and visit us.  We have several open day tours every November prior to the Reception admissions process beginning.  We also have a number of tour dates booked in throughout the year and are always willing to arrange visits where possible, at other times.  Please call 01392 256669 ext 201 or email admin@stmichaelsacademyexeter.org

Supplementary Information

Please complete this form if you are wishing to apply for a church place for your child .

Appeals

If you are unhappy with the school place you’ve been offered, you can appeal for any of the schools you named in your application.

If you do not wish to accept an offer of a school place – either because your circumstances have changed or you are unhappy with the alternative offer we have made, please confirm this in writing either to the School Admissions Team or the school.

What to do if your application is refused – waiting lists and the right of appeal

If you have been refused a place, your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list and you have the right of appeal to an admissions appeal panel, independent of the admissions authority. When we inform you of your offer, we will explain how the appeals process works.

If you are refused a place, you can also make additional preferences. If you appeal for a place at a school, the offer we have made is not affected – you do not risk that place on the grounds that you have appealed elsewhere.

Read the Devon County Council guide to school admission appeals for further information.

The appeals timetable

Devon County Council is required to set out the appeals timetable for the next round of admissions in September 2019 for all community and voluntary controlled schools in the county. This timetable also relates to admission appeals for foundation and voluntary aided schools and those academies and free schools supported by Devon’s Traded Service for Admissions. This is also set out in the admissions policy for each school for 2019-20.

For primary and infant schools

Appeals at the normal round of admissions to reception will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals on 28 May 2019. Where the application was not made in time for a decision to be made on 16 April 2019, 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.

 

START DATES for Reception – September 2019

 

Rationale

The rationale behind our induction procedures are based firmly in the understanding that children need to feel settled, safe and happy to be able to develop as learners.  Parents also deserve the very best of our attention at all times but especially in the first few weeks of what can be an emotional time when very young children first start school.
