Drake’s C of E and Otterton C of E Primary Schools: Proposal to lower the age range
Update September 2021: The Regional Schools Commission (RSC) approved the proposals below in August 2021 following consultation and completion of the statutory process.
Link Academy Trust is consulting on lowering the age range at Drake’s C of E and Otterton C of E Primary Schools. The proposal involves lowering both schools age range to accept children from 3 years of age. Currently children join the two schools in the September following their 4th birthday. The Trust are proposing to lower the age range by 1 year from September 2021 for Otterton and September 2022 for Drake’s, which will enable both schools to have an on-site Foundation Stage Unit available every day to be able to accept pre-school age children.
