School Admissions

Swimbridge C of E Primary School admits children into the Foundation Stage Reception Class in the September of the academic year in which they will turn five years old. Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 15.

Parents and children will be invited into visit school for a 'Stay & Play' session during the summer term before their child starts, once admission has been confirmed. During this session, parents will be given a welcome pack and will have the chance to ask the class teacher any questions. The class teacher will also arrange to make a home visit or book a phone consultation, with parents prior to the start of the September term.

During the 'Stay & Play' session the children have the opportunity to spend time in their classroom, familiarise themselves with their surroundings, and get to know the adults with whom they will be working.

The start of the September term will be phased for the first week in school, with children attending either morning or afternoon sessions. During their second week they will attend for morning session and stay for lunch, with full time commencing from week three.

The school follows the Devon County Council Guidelines for Admissions and our Admissions Policy is available for download in the useful links below.

The governing board has requested an in-year variation to the school’s admissions policy for 2022-23 and 2023-24. This is to extend the catchment area into the former catchment area for Chittlehampton school. Comments can be made by email to the school and/or to schoolsadmissionpolicy-mailbox@devon.gov.uk
