Starting school is a very important milestone both for children and their parents. The vast majority of our parents choose their local, catchment school and we plan our education provision to ensure we can provide places for new pupils at their catchment school.
In the run-up to November’s registration week for the new Primary 1 intake each school will offer an opportunity for you to visit them. You can speak to staff to find out more about the school first-hand. You can see how the school runs; discuss the curriculum and their priorities as well as seeing recent examples of pupils’ work on display. In many cases you may also have the chance to meet other parents who already have children there. All of this will help you understand the school’s unique character and give you an insight into the learning environment that your child could enjoy there.
