Starting School - Admissions

At Newlaithes Nursery & 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.


Local Authority advice about applying for a school place 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.


The deadline for applying for a school place for September 2023 is 15th January 2023. 


Information about appealing for a school place should you be unsuccessful is available here.


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our catchment area  below. Further details are also available in our prospectus (above). We take children within and outside our catchment area depending on numbers applying.
