Current Admissions Policies
The Board of Trustees is the Admissions Authority for Ellacombe Academy. This policy details the admission arrangements for our Academy and should be read in conjunction with the Primary and In Year Co-ordinated Schemes and other agreed policies of Torbay Local Authority. All policies and procedures seek to comply with the requirements of the School Admissions Code.
There will be 60 reception places available in September 2018.
Please find our Admissions Policies below.
Learning Academy Partnership (South West) as admissions authority for Ellacombe Academy must ensure that appeals lodged by the appropriate deadlines are heard within the following timescales:
a) for applications made in the normal admissions round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals; for September 2017 appeals must be received by 18 May 2018.
b) for late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
c) for applications for in-year admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
Any appeals submitted after the appropriate deadline must still be heard, in accordance with whatever timescale is set out in the timetable published by the admission authority.
