Legislation has given parents freedom regarding choice of school for their children.
It is however necessary for children to be registered for education at the school in their catchment area. Therefore parents may, if they wish, make a placing request to have their child enrolled in a school other than that which services their area. If a placing request to another school is being considered, the Head Teacher should be informed and will give the parents the necessary forms etc.
Children due to start school in August and who reside in St Andrew’s catchment area, register here some time in January. A notice always appears in the Greenock Telegraph giving details of dates. Information regarding parental rights and all other matters concerning registration and enrolment will be given to parents on registration or indeed at any other time on request.
The same procedure applies to children who move into this area in the course of the session. They should be registered here but again it is open to parents to make a placing request for any other school.
Anyone wishing to enrol their children at St Andrew’s Primary School, should telephone the school – 715806 – for an appointment with the Head Teacher Mr Connick.
Pupils within the catchment area of St Andrew’s School who live over a mile away are entitled to free transport, please contact the education offices or the school for an application form.
