Schools issue pupil registration reminder to Renfrewshire parents

Parents of Renfrewshire kids due to start school in 2013 are being issued a reminder to register next week.

Arrangements have been made in Renfrewshire schools to register all children who reach five years of age between 1 March 2013 and 28 February 2014.

Pupils whose surnames begin with the initials A-L should be registered at their catchment school on Wednesday 16 January.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1Pupils with surnames starting M-Z should be registered on Thursday 17 January. On both dates, registration will take place between 1 and 3pm.

Parents are required to produce their child’s birth certificate and two proofs of residence.

Councillor Jacqueline Henry, convenor of Renfrewshire Council’s Education Policy Board, said: “Sending your little one to school is always a big moment, so it’s worth getting things off on the right foot by registering correctly.

“Registration with your catchment school is a fairly simple process so please make sure you go along on the right date and have all the necessary documentation.”

Parents wishing their child to attend a school outwith their catchment area need to make a placing request. Placing request forms are available from catchment schools upon registration.
