Apply for Reception Place

Applying for a Reception Place at ​Heron Hill Primary School 

How to make an application for your child to start at our school in September 2024.

  • Read Cumbria County Council's booklet ‘Starting School in Cumbria – September 2024’, available on the council’s website at  Alternatively a copy is available to view at the school. 
  • You may apply either by completing the on-line application form on the council’s website or you can download an application form (SA1) from the county council’s website, ask your preferred school for a form or contact the School Admissions and Appeals Team - and they will send a form to you. 
  • Return your completed form to your preferred school by the closing date of 15th January 2024; it is vital to get your application in on time as there is less chance of getting a place at your preferred school if your application is late.​

We would like to invite you to visit our Reception Unit and the wider school, meet our friendly staff, and take the opportunity to view our exciting and rich environments.  We are holding Reception Open Afternoons on Monday 6th November (1.00 pm-5.30 pm) and Thursday 9th November (1.00 pm-5.00 pm).  These will be drop-in events – you can call in anytime during the sessions.  However, if you are able to attend before the end of the school day (3.15 pm), you will be able to see our Reception Unit fully operating and reception staff will be available to talk to you.  If you would like to visit on an alternative date, please contact us.
