Boringdon has 420 children on roll.
The school follows the Admissions Policy of the WeST Trust. Children are admitted into the Reception classes in September of the school year (1st September - 31st August) in which they will be five years of age. (Parents retain the right to defer entry for their child until January of the school year, if their child’s birthday falls between 1st March and 31st August). All school admissions are dealt with directly by the Local Authority and their contact details are as follows:
Tel: 307469
Our pupil admission number is 60 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, admitting a few children each day and attending mornings only for the first two weeks. Home visits are made by the class teachers and teaching assistants.
For more information on applying for your child to join Boringdon Primary School please see Plymouth Council’s website here.
