Mark these diary dates to register your child for school

Children who reach 5 years of age between 1 March 2019 and 28 February 2020 must be registered at their catchment school in January 2019.

Depending on your child's surname, you will need to attend the catchment school in your area between 1pm and 3pm on one of two dates.

A to L - Wednesday 16 January 2019.

M to Z - Thursday 17 January 2019. 


What do you need to bring with you?

You will need to bring these original documents with you.

  1. Your child's birth certificate
  2. Two proofs of residence, which must include:
    • council tax notice or proof you have registered for council tax at your property
    • a rentbook or tenancy agreement for a rented property, a letter from your solicitor confirming that missives have been concluded if currently purchasing or a mortgage/bank statement if you own your home


Your choice of school

You must register your child at one school, either the denominational or non-denominational school for your area.

However, after registering your child at a school you can make a placing request if you want to send your child to a different school. See related article - sending your child to school - for more on this or ask for a form from your catchment school.

Placing requests for the school year starting August 2019 at all schools, should be sent to Children's Services by 15 March 2019.
