Cumbrian Schools Admissions


Our Nursery admissions are governed and managed by the School. Places are available either as 5 morning, or 5 whole day sessions. The latter comprises the 30 hours of free childcare now available to parents. Please click on the link below for more information and an Application Form. Application Forms can be returned to the school office via hand, post or email.

Nursery Admissions

Please be aware that attendance at a school's nursery is not a factor in allocating places when your child is ready to move into the Reception year group. You will need to apply for a Reception place under the Local Authority's Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and places will be allocated according to the Determined Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.


Transfer to Junior School - September 2025

If your child is currently in Year 2, they will transfer to a junior or primary school in September 2025.
