As you know from last year the annual registration date for P1 children has been brought forward. The annual school registration week will take place during the second week in November. An advert will be placed in the press week beginning 06 October 2014 to advise parent/carers of the additional registration week.
The earlier registration date allows schools and the authority the opportunity to more effectively manage the allocation of children to schools particularly for those living in the catchment area.
Parent/Carers of children due to start school in August 2015 are invited to register their child here during registration week which this year runs from 10th to 14th November 2014. If you know of anyone who is thinking of sending their child to Darnley Primary, please pass this information along. Flyers will be sent to all of our feeder nursery schools too.
It is customary for children to attend their local school. As is usual practice, parents can make placing requests but need to register at their local catchment school. Our catchment area has changed significantly since the Consultation and if (potential) parents/carers aren’t sure, please contact the school and we can advise!
A further advert will be placed in the press on week commencing 5 January 2015 inviting parent/carers who have not yet registered their child at the catchment school to do so between the 12th to 16th January 2015.
