We enrol all children living the area who:
*will be five years old by the registration date and are not already attending school
*will reach the age of five before the last day in February of the following year.
It would be very helpful if children coming to school could do the following:
1. Remove articles of outdoor clothing and hang them on a peg
2. Dress and undress for P.E.
3. Use a knife and fork
4. Use the toilet properly
5. Wash and dry hands and face
6. Tidy up after using toys, books and equipment
7. Tie shoelaces
If your child is transferring into our school, you are invited to meet teachers, visit our resource rooms and have a look at the books and equipment we use. Please telephone for an appointment.
You have the right to make a placing request for your child to be educated in a school other that the local school. In December each year, the authority will advertise its arrangements for placing requests. There are sound educational reasons for trying to ensure that the transfer or the admission of children to a school takes place at the start of a school session. Every effort will be made to ry to meet the parental wishes, but you should note that it is not always possible to grant every placing request to a particular school.
Placing requests to Primary School do not necessarily ensire that your child will have a direct entry into the asssociated Secondary School. Advice must be sought from the Primary School Head Teacher. All placing requests details and procedures are available from the school or North Lanarkshire Council’s website (www.northlan.gov.uk).
