Secondary schools

Secondary schools take children from Year 7 to Year 12.
 

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.

The main changes to the existing arrangements are as follows:

  • An addition to the oversubscription criteria 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).
  • For in-year admissions -  the waiting list will be held for one year from the date of testing rather than until 31 July. This puts the criteria back to the one operative in the 2018/19 academic year and means that students could potentially remain on the waiting list for a longer period without the need for reapplication and retesting.
