The Governors of Culgaith C of E School are the Admissions Authority for the school. Following consultation with the Diocesan Board of Education and the Local Authority the
Governors have set the admission number for access to the reception class as 8. This is the maximum number of children who will be admitted to the Reception intake group.
The parental pack contains information and a Common Application Form (SA1) for admission to our school. It is also possible for an application to be made on the Cumbria County Council
website (http://www.cumbria.gov.uk/childrensservices/schoolsandlearning/lss/admissions.asp). This is the preferred option but if you wish your application to be considered under the faith
criteria you should also please complete the supplementary form and hand it to School.
Applications which are late for genuine reasons, for example moving house, will not be disadvantaged. The Local Authority is responsible for ensuring that decisions in this respect
are consistent. Parents are encouraged to state three preferences on the application form. The Governors consider all preferences equally so the order of your preferences will not be used in
considering your application (it will only be used if a place is available for your child at one or more school.) Places at this school are allocated according to this Admissions policy
and the Local Authority’s Coordinated Admissions Scheme. Parents will be advised of their child’s allocated school place by the Local Authority. Parents of children not offered a
place will be informed of the reason and offered an alternative school by the Local Authority.
