For 2021-2022 the consultation will be live between 9 December 2019 to 19 January 2020.

If no changes are made to admission arrangements, they must be consulted on at least every seven years.

The Plymouth School Admissions guides for parents are now available on the Plymouth City Council website at www.plymouth.gov.uk/schooladmissions. You can find them under the section called ‘Apply for a school place’.
In respect of the pages: Apply for an infant/primary, junior, secondary or KS4 place, step 1 on the page has the guide for parents booklet which includes information on how to apply for a school place, the admission criteria for each school and school contact details. Step 2 has the link to apply online and also pdfs of the application forms.
When applying for a school place, parents/carers will need to register so they can use the Citizen Portal. Once this is done, you can apply for a school place. If a parent/carer does not have their child’s UID number, they can still apply, they just click the ‘no UID’ box in the application. (All the UID number does is infill some of the child’s data).
Applying for places on-line is simple, convenient, time-saving, and you will get an instant acknowledgement that your application has been received; alternatively, you may print and fill in the application form and return it either to a Plymouth primary school or direct to the School Admissions Team. All of the information within the booklet, plus online application & supplementary information forms are on the website.
