Admission to Primary School 2022 for children born between 01/09/2017 and 31/08/2018
You will be aware that children born between the dates above are entitled to start full time Primary Education in September 2022.
The application facility opens on 15th November 2021 and closes at midnight on 15th January 2022. It is important that parents apply before the closing date, even if they are intending to defer their child’s admission until later in the academic year, they must secure a place before that decision need be made.
We know that most families will apply using the online facility at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline. They should receive a letter from the Admissions Team shortly, providing a Unique Identifying Number which will facilitate that application. It is not essential to have this number to apply and any parent who does not receive a letter may proceed through the screens by first selecting ‘NO UID’. We are anxious that no application is delayed beyond the closing date as Schools have limits placed upon them and we must offer places up to the determined number in the first round – no places can be held in reserve for late applicants. Each year there are parents who are disappointed that places at local schools are not available because they did not apply on time.
