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 from Monday, November 4 to Friday, November 8 and the council is once 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, City Convener 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 their catchment school in the first instance.

Families will be notified of their confirmed P1 place no later than February 2020 and schools contacting parents and carers to invite their children to special open days and visits ahead of the new school term in August 2020.
