New schools in Devon for 2017-18
There are two new primary schools planned to open in Devon.
Trinity Church of England Primary School in Exeter (voluntary aided school) will open on a temporary site in September 2017 with 30 places available in reception. For more information, please visit the Exeter Diocese website.
The planned opening of Sherford Vale Primary School (free school) in September 2017 will now not take place. For further information, please contact the Ivybridge Academy Trust.
Parents were able to apply for Trinity alongside applications for other primary schools between 15 November 2016 and 15 January 2017. Applications after this date may be made but may be considered late.
Applications will be considered to be on time for any new school up to the application processing date as we recognise that parents may be new to the area and that some parents will feel more confident about applying for a school when they see progress with its build.
The opening of any new school is subject to statutory processes for planning. Where, for instance, a free school or academy has not had its funding agreement confirmed by the national offer date, offers will be conditional on it being confirmed. If this is the case, we will make an additional offer for another school to make sure no child is without a school place if the opening of any school is delayed. Conditional offers will be confirmed once funding agreements are signed.
