Children who are starting school are normally enrolled or registered in January. Advance notice of the actual dates will be placed in the local press and information will be available from nurseries and playgroups. Notice is also given through school newsletters. You must register at your catchment school, even if you intend to make a placing request to another school, educate your child privately or defer your child’s start at school for another year.
You may choose to enrol your son or daughter in either the local denominational or local non-denominational school. This choice will determine the secondary school to which your child will transfer.
You must bring:-
– your child’s birth certificate
– your current child benefit statement
– a copy of your most recent council tax notice
– a copy of your current mortgage statement or a signed and independently witnessed residency/tenant agreement (agreement must be for 1 year or more)
– a copy of your driving license, utility bill or bank statement (transactions within the last 3 months) if you do not receive child benefit
If you have any queries regarding registration, please do not hesitate to contact the school office. Applications to defer should be completed and sent to the authority as soon as possible to inform places available in both nursery and Primary One for next session.
