Junior schools

Junior schools take children from Year 3 to Year 6

The main changes to the existing arrangements are as follows:

  • An extension of the oversubscription criteria for children with exceptional medical and social grounds to include a provision for children who were in state care outside of England and who ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. This inclusion is in response to guidance and a request from the Department for Education. Other criteria remain the same as in the previous academic year (2019/20).
  • In the instance where only one child in a multiple birth family can be offered a place at the school, the selection of the child will move from a decision made by the parent/carer to an electronic random allocation carried out by Plymouth City Council.
  • Additional wording in relation to a parental response to an offer of a school place to confirm should the parent/carer decline the offer made, the parent will be expected to notify the educational arrangements that they plan to make for the child.
  • An amendment to the Staff Supplementary Information Form to clarify that the form will need to be completed by the parent and the school of employment rather than the school that the child attends.
