Your child will be automatically admitted to school in August if his or her fifth birthday falls between 1 March of that same year and the last day of February of the following year.
You can, however, make a request for early entry to school for a child whose fifth birthday falls after the above period.
Registering your child for primary school
If your child is due to start school in August, he or she should be registered in your local primary school before the end of the proceeding January. Local advertisements issued in January each year provide full details on how to register your child. Advance notice of the actual dates will be placed in the local press and information will be available from Orbiston Nursery , Bellshill Nursery Centre, local nurseries and playgroups. Notice is also given through school newsletters and website.
Parents wishing to arrange to look around the school should contact the head teacher.
Normally your child will attend the local primary school. Details of the actual boundaries of the catchment area is available from the school. Entry is at the start of the new session in August each year.
In addition, the authority provides Gaelic Medium education at Condorrat Primary School, Cumbernauld.
You may also make a placing request for your child to attend a school other than the local school.
