School Enrolment November 2019 Nov 04, 2019
REMINDER – ONLY FOR HOUSEHOLDS WHO MAY HAVE CHILDREN APPROACHING SCHOOL AGE
PRIMARY SCHOOL REGISTRATION 4TH – 8TH NOVEMBER AND CATCHMENT AREAS
For those of you who may have children that will have turned 5 years of age between 1st March 2020 and 29th February 2021, this is just a reminder that you should enrol your child for their local school between Monday 4th November and Friday 8th November 2019.
The Roman Catholic primary school for the whole of the Gorbals is St Francis Primary School. The non-denominational school for everything east of Crown Street (including the east side of Crown Street) is Blackfriars Primary School, and for everything west of Crown Street (including the west side of Crown Street) it is Cuthbertson Primary School.
So, for those living west of Crown Street (which includes all of Laurieston), and who wish your child to attend Blackfriars Primary School, you must put in a placing request. However, you can only do that after you have enrolled your child at their local school (i.e. Cuthbertson Primary School). Please note that Blackfriars is close to capacity and placement requests may be refused.
We are issuing this reminder because we are aware that some of our tenants missed the deadline last year and had great difficulty in getting their child into their local school because of over subscription.
