Primary school registration (P1)

Parents and carers of children who turn five between 1 March 2024 and 29 February 2025 should register during the week starting Monday 15 January to Friday 19 January 2024 for starting primary 1 in August 2024.

Parents/carers should take their children to the appropriate local primary school during that week at the times(s) designated by the school concerned.

Please note - you must produce a birth certificate(s) and a current council tax notice.

You can learn more about choosing a school for your child on the Scottish Government website.

If you wish to contact your local primary school regarding registration you can email or call them directly.

Parents/carers who intend to defer entry for their child to primary school and wish for an additional year of funded early learning and childcare should register their child for school as described above and complete the deferred entry proforma.

This document is available from the school and on the Deferred entry to primary school page.
