Entry into Reception class

Applications for places are dealt with by Cumbria County Council School Admissions (01228 221582).  The necessary form will need to be completed by January of the year your child is due to start school in September. Visits when you are making your choice are most welcome, do make an appointment and come and see the school ‘at work’.

Pre-school children and their parents are invited to attend school for some morning sessions in the term before they start school.  The school also invites members of the community to attend various school events.

When the children start school in the September of the year they are five, they are given a staggered start to allow them time to adjust to the length of the days and new routines. All children come in on a part time basis for the first two weeks. After this period of time the school week can be tailored to suit your child’s needs until they are ready for full time schooling.


Entry into Years 1 – Years 6

Children are of course welcome to join us at any stage in their primary school career. Our experienced staff and friendly children would ease the time of transfer from another school.  Please contact us to make an appointment to visit the school and to discuss admission with our Headteacher Mr Nick Page on 017683 61514 or email
