Transfer to Junior School in September 2019

If you live in Cumbria and your child is currently in Year 2 at an infant school, they will be due to transfer to a junior or primary school in September 2019.  You must apply to Cumbria County Council for a primary or junior school place.

Please note - the online application process closed on 15 January 2019.

If you have NOT made an application for your child to start school in September 2019, you need to do so as soon as possible.

Before you apply for a school place, please make sure that you have read through the important information below.  If you need a hard copy of the booklet, please contact the School Admissions and Appeals Team (contact details available on the right-hand side of this page) and we will send a copy to you.  Copies are also available to view in all infant and primary schools and public libraries in Cumbria.  Page 9 of the booklet explains what happens to applications that are received after the closing date of 15 January 2019.

If you have NOT yet made an application, please go to the 'Late Applications' section to download application form SA2.
