Reception Admissions

If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 you can apply for a Reception place for September 2021 from 1st November 2020 to 15th January 2021.

Please Note: Because our school is new, there is a separate application process for the first year only.

If you would like your child to be considered for a reception place, you will need to complete our Application Form 2021-22 and the Supplementary Form 2021-22.

Please return these forms directly to Admissions Officer, Learning Academy Partnership, Suite 4, Zealley House, Greenhill Way, Kingsteignton TQ12 3SB or email to

Current Policies

St Michael’s C of E Academy is a brand new primary school for children aged 2-11. The academy will open in September 2021 for nursery and reception children in the first year and then continue to grow in size by one Year Group year-on-year, until we have classes in every Year Group, from nursery through to Year 6.  Our founding children will have the unique opportunity to be the first cohort to start their outstanding education in our Reception year.

The policies below detail the admission arrangements for our Academy for 2020 – 2021 and 2021 – 2022 and should be read in conjunction with the Primary and In Year Co-ordinated Schemes and other agreed policies of Devon Local Authority. All policies and procedures seek to comply with the requirements of the School Admissions Code.
