Primary Enrolment Week for 2018/19

Next week is Primary Enrolment Week for 2018/19.

Enrolling your child for primary can seem like a daunting and confusing process. We aim to make it as easy as possible with our drop in enrolment week.

If you wish to apply for a place at Dalry Primary for the next P1 intake parents are invited to visit our office from Monday 6th November 2017 – Thurs 9th November 2017 between the hours of 9.30 – 2.30.

Staff will be on hand to provide support to complete the enrolment forms and answer any questions you may have.

Parents need to bring their child’s birth certificate or passport, a council tax statement (for the current year), and a utility bill: gas, electricity, telephone landline/Broadband (within the last 3 months).

Please also bear in mind the general eligibility information as available on the council website.

Once you have applied you will be invited to attend both our P1 parents: Moving up Day on Thursday 14 June 2018 and Welcome Meeting for Parents on Wednesday 20 June 2018.

Times for these events will be confirmed nearer to the time.

We look forward to meeting you next week and next school year.
