Enrolling your child

Any new parent moving into the district should contact the head teacher, Mrs Hilsley, and make an appointment to see round the school and meet their child’s new class teacher.

Within the district any child whose fifth birthday occurs between 1st March and 28 February is eligible for admission at the beginning of the autumn term in August each year.

Enrolment of new entrants takes place late in the autumn.  Parents of pupils in the nursery are given a letter inviting them to meet the head teacher. Advertisements are also placed in the local press annually to announce the opportunity for enrolment. Parents who are unable to attend the enrolment day should contact the head teacher to mark alternative arrangements.

If nursery places are over-subscribed we give priority to four year olds and offer them places from Monday-Thursday in the morning. There are also 4 afternoon sessions and a Friday morning session which we offer first to 4 year olds and then 3 year olds. Parents wishing places should contact the head teacher or nursery teacher.

Please note – when parents enrol their children the nursery class, this does not guarantee their child a place in our P1 class.
