Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please supply the following:
1 A list of all Primary, Infant and Junior schools in Devon and whether they were oversubscribed or not-oversubscribed on national offer day 2018 (16th April).
Please include each school’s Unique Reference Number (URN), DFE code, or address/postcode to allow us to identify each relevant school without ambiguity.
We define a school to be oversubscribed if, and only if, at least one on-time applicant was refused a place and the applicant did not receive an offer from any higher preference school.
If there were no refusals to on-time applicants – even if the school was unable to accept one or more late applications, or admitted over its published admission number – then we do not consider this school to be oversubscribed.
If you use a different definition of oversubscription, then please make this clear in the response.
2 The total number of offers made at each school.
Questions 3-5 apply to oversubscribed schools only:
3 The number of on-time applicants refused a place who did not receive a place at any higher preference school.
By this we mean the number of unsuccessful on-time applicants remaining on each school’s waiting list.
Please answer for each individual school.
4 The admission criterion under which the last successful applicant was admitted.
5 The home-to-school distance of the last successful applicant, assuming distance was used to allocate this place.
Please include measurement units and whether this is based upon a walking/driving route, straight line/as the crow flies distance or an alternative measurement system.
In respect of all questions, please see the available via this link.
