If your child has their 5th birthday between 1 March 2021 and 28 February 2022, you should register them for school next week – and we’re asking you to do this online.
Go to www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/p1registration anytime between Monday 2 and Monday 9 November.
You’ll need to have a few things ready to upload:
- a copy of your child’s full birth certificate
- proof of address – Council Tax and Child Benefit Statement (or Driving Licence, utility/bank statement showing last 3 months transactions)
- Roman Catholic Baptismal Certificate (if applicable)
If you can’t register online, please phone your local catchment school to arrange an appointment. This is really important – please do not turn up at school without an appointment.

School Uniform (from August)
In order to fit in with arrangement when pupils return to school in August, our uniform policy will be temporarily adjusted. Taking into account an increase in outdoor learning, pupils are being asked to wear a white polo shirt, a red or grey jumper, sweatshirt or cardigan with black or grey leggings/jogging trousers. Pupils should not bring a change of shoes and will be permitted to wear trainers to school. Pupils should ensure they bring a waterproof jacket with them each day.
