Monkerton Community Primary School Admissions


If you are considering applying for a place at MCPS, we would be delighted to speak to you about all aspects of the school.

Although we act as our own admissions authority, we use the services of Devon County Council's Admissions Team to administer applications on our behalf.

All parents who wish to express a preference for a place at MCPS must do so using the Devon Local Authority Common Application Form (D-CAF1). This is available online as part of the Step by Step primary admissions booklet, copies of which are available by calling the My Devon team on 0345 155 1019.

All applications need to have been made between November and January. The Local Authority co-ordinates admissions for all primary schools in Devon, and will write to you (or email if you applied online) in April to advise of the school place you have been allocated for your child.

If you wish your child to be admitted to MCPS other than at the first intake to Reception or at transfer from infant to junior, even if one or more of your preferences is for a school outside Devon, you will need to follow the guidance here.

The 2020/21 Admissions Policy for September 2020 admissions is available to download here

The 2021/22 Draft Admissions Policy for September 2021 admissions is available to download here - published for consultation purposes

Our Nursery will be open from January 2021. In the meantime please feel free to browse and apply for places in either our Broadclyst or Westclyst Nurseries.
