If you are interested in finding out about a place for your child please get in touch. We will be offering open days during the Autumn Term 2022, but can arrange individual visits to the school on request. Keep an eye on our facebook page for further details.
Our admission policies can be found at the bottom of this page, the date refers to the year in which a school place is applied for.
We admit children who live in both Devon and Plymouth local authorities as we are on the edge of the local authority boundaries; families apply through Devon County Council, regardless of their home address. The admissions team can be found here.
If you wish to apply for a place at Sparkwell as an in-year admission (that is, not the start of Reception year) you need to complete a form with Devon admissions, not direct to the school.
Parents of children leaving us at the end of Year 6 choose a range of secondary schools, including Grammar Schools and schools in Plympton, Ivybridge and further afield. We are listed as a feeder Primary school for Ivybridge Community College and Plympton Academy, but all our children in the last few years have received their first choice place at a range of local schools.
This is a copy of the proposed admissions policy for 2024-25. There are no significant changes. Devon’s annual consultation on School Admission Arrangements 2024/2025 is now running and will close on Friday 6 January 2023. Responses must be submitted either by email to email@example.com or in writing to School Admissions and Transport Consultation, Devon County Council, Room L60, County Hall, Exeter EX2 4QG by Friday 6 January 2023.
