VA Primary &

Nursery School



Trinity Primary and Nursery School is a Church of England voluntary aided ("VA") maintained school. As such, the admissions authority for the school is the governing body.

The school is a community school in the widest sense; it will be open, welcoming and nurturing to pupils of all faiths and no faith. Faith will play no part on the admissions process, even if the school is oversubscribed. Our Admissions Policy (see below towards the bottom of this page) sets out how we will consider applications including the criteria for selection and over subscription. 


The school follows the admissions procedures set by Devon County Council, and you must apply via the Devon County Council admissions procedures.

Reception entry only (known as 'normal round entry' admissions) normally opens in November and closes mid January. You can select three schools and will normally find out which school you have been allocated in April. 


To join the school after reception (even at the beginning of the school year), you should follow the 'in year' admissions guidance from Devon County Council. However, please note that for the 2018-19 school year, the school will only operate reception and year 1 classes.
