Plympton St. Maurice currently has 201 children on roll.
The school follows the Admissions Policy of the Plym Academy Trust. Children are admitted into the Reception classes in the September of the school year (1st September to 31st August) in which they will be five years of age. (Parents retain the right to defer entry for their child until the January of the school year if their child’s birthday falls between the 1st March and the 31st August). All school admissions are dealt with directly by the Local Authority and their contact details are as follows:-
Tel: 307170
Our pupil admission number is 30 in each year group.
Before children start school for the first time, parents are invited to an evening meeting to share information. The children are then introduced gradually to school life, with activities sessions and attending mornings only for the first week. Home visits are made by the class teacher and teaching assistant.
For more information on applying for your child to join Plympton St. Maurice Primary School please see Plymouth Council’s website here.
