Admission to the Reception Class at Brunswick Infant School
Children are eligible for a full-time place in school the year in which they have their fifth birthday. The school year runs from the 1st September – 31st August. Applications are made in the Autumn term prior to the following September admission and prospective parents are welcome to make an appointment to look round school.
At this current time due to COVID restrictions school site visits are only taking place in the school holiday periods to avoid contamination.
Parents are informed at the beginning of the summer term as to whether their child has a place. Pupils attending Brunswick Nursery do not have any priority over Reception places.
Our admission number is 45 and we are often over-subscribed.
Please note that the Local Authority is responsible for all admissions to Brunswick School.
As Brunswick School is a Community School the Local Authority’s Admission Policy applies. Please refer to the Local Authority’s website link below for additional information.
We generally hold a parents “Induction” evening in the summer term for all parents of Foundation Stage children when any questions you may have can be answered. Staff will then organise home visits for all pupils who are new to Brunswick School.
Due to Covid restrictions this year we conducted extended phone calls with all new starters to discuss all the Induction arrangements and to answer any questions or concerns parents had. The feedback from parents about this process was very positive and the children all settled in beautifully due to our staggered start programme.
Transfer to Junior School (Key Stage 2)
The majority of our children transfer to North Lakes Junior School but you have the choice of any suitable school providing there are places available. Children in the town can travel on public buses to get to the school, so taking younger children to Brunswick School is much easier. Teachers and pupils from both schools take part in a wide range of transition activities. Both schools have a close working relationship ensuring that information on pupils’ performance, personal well being and specific talents are passed on. Our aim is to ensure a smooth transition for your child wherever your choice of school.
Cumbria County Council is the admissions authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools. Information regarding the authority's admission policy can be found on the County Council website:
