Following a consultation period Torbay Council as the admission authority for Homelands Primary School has now formally determined the admission arrangements for 2017-18. It has been agreed to remove your designated area, therefore priority order for oversubscription will be


  • LAC and former LAC
  • Sibling on roll at time of application
  • Other children, prioritised by straight line distance from the school (Measurements will be made from the co-ordinates of the home address as pinpointed on the Council's system, to the co-ordinates of the school as pinpointed on the Council's system. The pinpoint will be within the boundary of the property and its precise location will be determined by Torbay Council)
  • Children with EHCP where the school is named will be automatically placed at the school
