We follow the Policy set out by the Cumbria LA. Pupils will be admitted at age 3+, without reference to ability or aptitude. The number of intended admissions for the year commencing September 2021 will be 15. In the event of more than 15 applications, priority will be given to children living near to the school, or who have brothers or sisters already at school, or have medical reasons to attend Kirkbride School rather than another. Children from outside the catchments area with exceptional social, medical or educational needs will be admitted if there is space.

In the event of a place not being available, a place should be offered at the nearest school to the child's home address, which has space available. Parents should note that if a place is allocated to our school on the basis of information provided by them and that information later proves to be inaccurate, the offer may be withdrawn. The LA also reserves the right to seek verification of any information provided by parents including proof of residency.

Prospective Parents and Carers

One of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Education is fundamental to future success, so choosing the right primary school for your child is vital.

​At Kirkbride Primary School we a provide a dynamic and nurturing environment that values every child and enables them to gain high self-esteem, morals, confidence and the motivation to succeed. 

Our whole school values are embedded into everything we do here in the school and pupils are happy, eager to learn and well behaved.

We have fantastic facilities, extensive grounds and a wide-range of extra-curricular activities, football, book club, computing and multi-skills.

We work hard to find ways to 'bring learning alive' so you might find us exploring the outdoors, working with a real life author, taking part in drama, or even setting up a tea-party in our classroom! 

​We know that choosing a school for your child is a daunting prospect. We're here to support you, so that when you do make a decision you can be confident it's the right decision.

Prospective parents and guardians are welcome to visit and have a tour of the school.
