Cumbria County Council Admissions 

We would like your child's transition to primary school to be a happy and smooth experience for your family. In order to do this we are continually trying to improve our links with home and playgroup, and many activities take place which are intended to aid transition. Visits, invitations to school functions, assemblies, and sessions in the infant classroom are encouraged between school and home/playgroup for both parent and child.

Home visits are carried out by the infant teacher and a teaching assistant during the summer term. There is also an induction evening during the summer term, when parents can find out more about the school and meet all the staff.
