We welcome children into our school from the villages of Mary Tavy and Brentor, nearby farms and hamlets. We also attract children from further afield (other villages and the town of Tavistock). We work hard to ensure that children settle quickly in to our school; our PTA is very welcoming to new families, and there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved in the life of the school. We aim for everyone to quickly feel part of our school and wider community.
If you are considering applying for a place for your child at Mary Tavy and Brentor Primary School, please do contact us to arrange a visit. We understand that a decision about a school is a major one for you and it is a good idea to visit us to see what we can offer your child. We would love to show you around our school.
If you decide that you would like your child to attend our school, the law says you have to make an application for admission. All parents have to apply for a place at every Devon school even if they already have an older child at the school or live in the school's catchment area.
We adhere to Devon County Council’s Admissions Policy.The applications for our school (and for all Devon maintained schools) are managed centrally, through Devon County Council. Do ring 0345 155 1019 or click on the link below to find out more.
The local authority has a legal duty to manage applications for the first admissions intake to schools. This is in order to make the process as fair and straightforward as possible. Devon County Council do this through their Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes which enable all parents to apply for a school place at the right time. You can view these schemes and other policies on Devon County Council’s website: www.devon.gov.uk/admissions
