Here at Caldew Lea Primary School, we pride ourselves on our ability to understand the needs of every child and this is reflected in our approach to the admissions process.

On this page, you will find all the information you need. If you need any assistance or help with completing the Admissions form, please email and we will be happy to help you.

Admissions Process

For your child to start Reception in September, you will need to apply for a place before 15th January 2024.

There are three ways you can apply:

  • Complete a form online via the Cumberland Council website
  • Complete a Word form and email it to Cumberland Council
  • Complete a form by hand and either post it to Cumberland Council or drop it at your preferred school.
The Council have also included this helpful guide to explain the process.
