Par­ents en­cour­aged to get on­line and en­rol P1 pupils

Evening Times - - NEWS -

ON­LINE reg­is­tra­tion for Glas­gow’s par­ents and car­ers to en­rol their children for the start of the new school term in Au­gust 2020 will go live to­day.

The Pri­mary 1 school en­rol­ment week this year runs un­til Fri­day, Novem­ber 8 and the coun­cil is again en­cour­ag­ing par­ents to en­rol elec­tron­i­cally. En­rol­ment is for fam­i­lies with children born be­tween March 1, 2015 and Fe­bru­ary 28, 2016.

Al­most all par­ents and car­ers used the on­line form last year to reg­is­ter their child.

Coun­cil­lor Chris Cun­ning­ham, spokesman for Ed­u­ca­tion,

Skills & Early Years, said: “Start­ing school is a sig­nif­i­cant step in a child’s and their par­ents or car­ers’ lives

“We have some of the best schools in Scot­land – with a huge in­vest­ment made across our school es­tate over the last few years.

“It is im­por­tant for fam­i­lies liv­ing in the area to check out and re­search their lo­cal school and reg­is­ter there – as we strongly ad­vo­cate – lo­cal schools for lo­cal children.”

If sub­mit­ting a plac­ing re­quest, par­ents must reg­is­ter their child at the catch­ment school in the first in­stance.
