Applying to come here
Once you decide you would like a place in Year 3, or at any other time after this, you must make a formal application. You can do this by applying direct to Devon Admissions on School admissions – Education and Families (devon.gov.uk)
For the Normal Round intake into school, children are offered places to start in Year 3 at the beginning of the September term. Children who are admitted to a vacancy at any time after this point are called 'In-Year' Admissions.
The Local Authority
Pilton Bluecoat is a member of TEAM Multi Academy Trust which is the admissions authority, responsible for the admissions policies and decisions on applications for admission. We have an admissions policy for each academic year. They are written to comply with the School Admissions Code and School Admissions Appeals Code.
Devon County Council publishes information about admissions and its own policies to support the admissions application and appeals process. This is at www.devon.gov.uk/admissions
The appeals process is detailed at www.devon.gov.uk/school-appeals
For questions about the admissions process in general, please don’t hesitate to contact the school direct or contact Devon School Admissions Service on 0345 155 1019 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
