GUIDANCE FOR APPLICATION AND ADMISSION TO EAST LOTHIAN COUNCIL NURSERY CLASSES

Parents/Carers can collect an application form from any East Lothian School or they can download a copy from the East Lothian Council website: www.eastlothian.gov.uk.

Nursery application forms with the child’s birth certificate can be submitted to the first choice nursery as soon as children turn two years old.

ENROLLING YOUR CHILD IN AN EAST LOTHIAN COUNCIL PRIMARY SCHOOL

Any child whose fifth birthday falls between 1 March and the last day of February can start school the following August.

Children living in the catchment area are given priority for places in this school. Entitlement to a place is based on the home address not attendance at a nursery class. You should register your child at your catchment school during November.

If you wish your child to attend an out of catchment school you can obtain an application form from any primary school or East Lothian Council website from November: www.eastlothian.gov.uk/PlacingRequests

Applications must be submitted by the end of December.
