Starting School - Admissions

At Newlaithes Infant School we have two reception classes and can therefore admit up to 60 children each year. Details of how places are allocated can be found here.


Cumbria Local Authority decides our admissions. Admissions Team members are always happy to advise parents and carers about applying for school places. You can contact them on 01228 221582. They can also advise you about being placed on our waiting list for places if none are available in your child's year group.


If you are moving into the area and would like to visit our school please call us to make an appointment on 01228 525756.


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our catchment area and the Local Authority admission arrangements below. Further details are also available in our prospectus (below).

If your child is due to start school in September 2019 applications can be submitted online from 10th September 2018 to 15th January 2019. You can access the Local Authority website here.
