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.
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.
