admission will be offered a school place by the LA – either at a school they have named or at an
alternative.
Informationprovided in an application
It is important that
all applications are completed
fully and
honestly. This is becausewhenwe offer
a place
to some and refuse others we do so in a fair and consistent manner. When
we have
reason to believe that information is not accurate
and has been provided knowingly we may
withdraw the offer of a place. This is particularly relevant when
an address that
is given is not the
one from which a child will actually attend school as
this may
disadvantage
another child. If
necessary, wewill ask for evidence of a child‟s home address before admission.
If you know or believe that your child‟s address will change before admission, youmust inform the
LA or theSchool as thismay affect your application.
PublishedAdmissionNumber - PAN
This is the number of places we intend tomake available for our normal intake. Once we set this
number, wewill not refuse admission for applications below the PAN. If there is unexpectedly high
demand and we believe we could admit more children, we inform Devon LA and either some
childrenwill be admittedabove thePANor wewill increase thePAN.
TheYear 7PAN for
theentire academic year
2015-16
is
160
.
For other Year Groups, the agreed admission limit will be the PAN that
was determined for that
cohort as it entered theSchool inYear 7unless varied in response to a change in circumstances at
theSchool. For further information, please contact theSchool or theSchool AdmissionsTeam.
