Schools have admission criteria to decide which children are allocated a places. For further information regarding primary, secondary and in year admissions view the following documents:

We have a Fair Access Protocol to ensure that unplaced children, especially  more vulnerable pupils, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.

Determined (final) admission arrangements for Torbay Schools for 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 can be viewed on Admission Arrangements.

Statement of Special Educational Needs

Where a school’s admission arrangements refer to a pupil with a Statement of Special Educational Needs, this will also include pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan.

Copies of these arrangements are available from us or directly from schools.
