Admissions

How can my child be admitted to Montpelier Primary School?

There is a single point of entry to start school for children born between 1st September and 31st August in the year that they are 5. Legally children do not have to start school until the term after their 5th birthday and the school will be flexible with parents wishing to take up this option for their child.

The Local Authority is responsible for the allocation of Foundation places at Montpelier Primary School. Application forms are availabe from schools or online at www.plymouth.gov.uk/primaryadmissions.  Parents will have the opportunity to decide thier first, second and their choices of primary schools for their children and will be offered a place in the spring term.

The school has a planned admission level of 90 children for each year in Foundation ( 90 in September 2019) and Key Stage 1 and 96 in Key Stage 2.

Parents wishing to transfer older children to Montpelier should also contact the Admisssion Team for information about availiablity of places. These will vary from time to time and year to year according to pupil movement.

The consultation process for 2021/22 has now closed.
