Each school has a Planned Allocation Number (PAN)- the number of pupils it can take in September, which varies depending on the size of the school. If more applications are received than the schools PAN, the decisions as to who is offered a place are considered against an ordered list of ‘over subscription criteria’. This may mean that living in the schools’ designated area, having a sibling already attending the school or attending a contributory primary may give you a better chance of getting place. Most schools in Devon follow the standard Devon County Council over subscription criteria (see link below), however there are a few exceptions, either check with you school directly or follow the link below to the admissions website.
