Registration of infant beginners in primary school

We've put in place a new system for Registration of Infant Beginners to support our ongoing response to COVID-19.

Parents/carers of children who attain the age of five years between 1 March 2021 and 28 February 2022, should register by 22 January 2021 for starting Primary 1 in August 2021.

A new interactive Primary 1 Enrolment Form is available (see below). Parents/carers can enrol online and submit a copy of their child's brith certificate and council tax/utility bill to their child's catchment school.

Completed forms should be sent directly to your catchment school enquiries mailbox.

Please note - the form is interactive and can be completed on your computer. You may experience difficulties if you attempt to download and complete the form on a mobile device.

For parents/carers who are unable to provide their council tax notice please visit our council tax portal to print another copy of your notice. Please note this is now also available to download to a mobile device.

The documents you'll need

A copy (scanned/snapshot picture) of your child's birth certificate.

If you don't have a council tax notice, you can print a copy on our council tax portal.

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

Parents/carers who want to defer entry for their child to primary school and apply for an additional year of part-time pre-school should register their child for school as described above and complete the deferred entry application form. This document is available from the school.

If you have any questions about deferred entry, please contact the head teacher.
