Registration of Infant Pupils

Glasgow City Council Information is found on

Registration of Infant Beginners and Choice of School

Generally children who reach the age of 4 years before the end of February will begin in August of that year. Parents/carers must register their child in their local school but have the choice to request their child be enrolled in another school out with their area. They will be given Placing Request forms at registration which they must send to the respective Education Authority.

Parents/carers living out with the St. Brendan’s catchment area and wishing to enroll their child here must register in a school in their own residential area and then apply for a placing request to this school. The registering school will issue them with the appropriate application form. The Education Authority will notify parents/carers of the outcome of placing requests in due course once the registrations are complete.

Registration of children will take place in November and January, and parents are asked to bring with them the child’s birth and baptismal certificates. Prior notification of registration will be given in :

• the press

• all locals nurseries

• Saint Brendan’s Church

Newsletter issued by the school.

Other Enrolments

Parents wishing to enrol their child/children in the school are advised to telephone the Head Teacher, either by calling personally at the school or by telephoning 0141 952 4449 to make suitable arrangements to discuss relevant details.

Transition Arrangements

A transition programme is in place to help support pupils transferring from nursery to primary. Visits to and from nursery ensure that the transition is effective and supportive, P.7 buddies are allocated to the new P.1 pupils and support the pupils in their early days of P.1.

It is important that our children feel happy and secure in our school. We want them to know their teachers and their new friends before starting Primary 1. We want to form a partnership with the parents from the time of enrolment. We will arrange a series of half day visits for pupils and parents in May/June, before the children start Primary 1 in August.

All important information is transferred from Nursery/other establishments as part of our transition programme.
