The Alumnis Multi-Academy Trust is the legal admitting authority for St Helen’s Church of England School.
The Trust is committed to a fair and equitable admissions process and, as such, has instructed the School Admissions department at the Local Authority (Devon County Council) to manage this process on the school’s behalf.
The Local Authority manage this process by ensuring that all applications and decisions adhere to the school’s published Admissions Policy.
Admissions into the Reception Class at St. Helen’s
If you would like your child to attend St. Helen’s you have to make an application for admission through the Local Authority. Neither the Local Authority nor the school will assume that you want a place and reserve one for you even if you have an older child at the school or live next to the school. Everybody has to apply and the Local Authority has a legal duty to manage applications for admission in order to make the process as fair and straightforward as possible. The Local Authority does this through our Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes which enable all parents to apply for a school place at the right time.
