Moorsway Federation




Moorsway Federation is made up of Shaugh Prior, The Erme and Cornwood Church of England Primary Schools. Devon County Council is the admissions authority, responsible for the admissions policies and decisions on application for admissions. We have an admissions policy for each academic year, which are written to comply with the School Admissions Code and the School Admissions Appeals Code.


Applying to come to one of our schools

Once you decide you would like a place in Reception or at any other time after this, you must make a formal application. You can do this by applying to the Local Authority and not direct to the school.

For the Normal Round intake into school, children are offered places to start in Reception at the beginning of the September term after their fourth birthday. Children who are admitted to a vacancy at any time after this point are called ‘In-Year’ Admissions.
