Choosing the right school for your child to attend is an important decision and needs careful consideration. As a result we have developed a well organised induction and transition process which focuses on the needs of children and families, each child’s admission is dealt with individually and experience a bespoke induction experience:
• Individual information is used to support the planning of each child’s induction;
• Consideration is given to each child’s different needs;
• Consideration is given to how the children will manage the change of setting;
• Appropriate strategies are identified to support a positive transition process;
• Where appropriate individual transition plans are developed.
Therefore, prior to completing any formal admission paperwork we encourage parents to come and spend some time in our school and speak with us regarding their child. Following this initial visit if parents decide that Haytor View is the school for their child, a ‘taster session’ is arranged for the child to come in and meet their Learning Leader, discover their classroom and make new friends. During the child’s taster session, the parents can meet with a school leader and complete the school admission process.
The school’s admissions policies contains more information on the school admissions process.
All applications for places need to be made to Devon County Council. By following this link to the Devon County Council School Admissions page you will find all the relevant documentation needed to submit an application.
