Registering your child at Primary School

East Renfrewshire Council has set up one week for you to register your son or daughter at your local primary school. 

You must register at your catchment school, even if you intend to make a placing request to another school or want to defer your place and keep your son or daughter at home for another year.  If you intend to educate your child privately or at home you should still register at your local catchment school.

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. 

If your child is aged five between 1 March 2014 and the end of February 2015 you should go along to your local primary school between 1.30 and 3.30pm any day during the week of Monday 13th – Friday 17th January 2014.  You should bring your son or daughter’s birth certificate, child benefit statement, copy of current council tax notice, copy of a utility bill and mortgage statement or rental agreement. 

More information on registration can be found from your local primary school, contacting Ann Nairn on 0141 577 3578 or online at www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/placing_request
