Admissions

 
 

Stoke Gabriel Primary School is a member of the Link 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. We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council.

 

Come and visit us

If you are interested in your child attending our school, you are welcome to come in and visit us. You can arrange a visit on 01803 782469 or by emailing the school at adminstokegabriel@thelink.academy   Samantha Leaves will be able to discuss admission with you.

 

Applying to come here

Once you decide you would like a place in Reception or at any other time after this, you must make a formal application. You can do this by applying to the Local Authority and not direct to the school

 

For the Normal Round intake into school, children are offered places to start in Reception 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.
