It is important that your child is in school every day so that they do not miss vital learning time. Please let the office know if your child will be absent from school by telephone on the first morning of the absence. Permission is required for absences which are foreseen and medical. Annual holiday will no longer be authorised by the Head Teacher except in exceptional circumstances as outlined on Absence Request Form S2 which is available from the school office.
Admission requests are managed by Plymouth School Admissions. Application Forms can be accessed by visiting Plymouth Admissions Website.

Our Planned Admissions Number (PAN) is 30.

There is an additional supplementary form which needs to be completed and returned to the school if you wish to gain admission to any of the six Catholic Primary Schools in Plymouth including Keyham Barton.

The timetable of admission will be in accordance with the Plymouth LA timetable.

Where a Catholic Primary school is over-subscribed, the Governing Body will apply the admission criteria listed in our Admissions Policy, in order of priority.

Tie-breaker priority will be given to the child in this criteria order.

If this produces a tie, priority will be determined as the child who lives the nearest to the school - the shortest distance measured by a straight line on the map.
