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 29 February 2024 are of statutory school age and may start education in August 2023.
Enrolment of pupils into P1 for the 2023/24 session takes place in January 2023. 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 ELC Enrolment please see the dedicated Early Learning and Childcare Place page.
If you would like to place your child in a school other than the one serving your home address, you should submit a Placing Request using the Placing Request Application Form.
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 2023/24 session received before 15 March 2023 must be dealt with before 30 April 2023.
