Due to Covid restrictions, P1 enrolment will be different this year. Please follow the link for full details and links to schools' online enrolment forms.
During the pandemic, please refer to our Learning and Childcare page for all Education updates.
The responsibility for a child's education rests with the parent. Most parents choose to discharge this responsibility by enrolling the child in a local authority school.
Generally, children who attend school will go to their local catchment school.
Entitlement to enrol in one of the Council's two Roman Catholic primary schools - St Bernadette's and St Mungo's Primary Schools or the Roman Catholic secondary school - St Modan's is restricted to children who have a baptism certificate from the Catholic Church.
Parents of other primary school aged children who wish to enrol must submit a placing request.
Placement requests for St Modan's must be submitted to Stirling Council. Please follow the link provided.
All children who have their 5th birthday before 28 February 2023 are of statutory school age and may start education in August 2022.
Enrolment of pupils into P1 for the 2022/23 session takes place in January 2022. Please contact your school direct about enrolment arrangements.
Individual school details can be found on the Schools section of this site.
Please refer to our Early Entry to School Request web page.
Please refer to our Deferred entry to Primary 1 web page.
For Nursery Enrolment please see the dedicated Early Learning and Childcare Place page.
Even if you are planning to make a placing request, please enrol your child at your catchment school, so that a school place is secured for him/her regardless of the outcome of the placing request.
Placing Requests can be accepted throughout the year, but all those for the 2022/23 session received before 15 March 2022 must be dealt with before 30 April 2022.
