Primary 1 registration
Children who are 5 years of age between 1 March 2019 and 29 February 2020 should be registered for education during the week commencing Monday 14 January 2019.
Parents/carers should register their children at their catchment denominational or non-denominational primary school during that week and should check the day(s)/time(s) of enrolment with the school concerned.
When registering your child you must bring their birth certificate and proof of your residence in the catchment area in the form of a Council Tax Notice and Utility Bill.
It is customary for children to attend their catchment denominational or non-denominational school: however parents may make a written request to place their child in any other school under the management of the education authority. Such a request is referred to as a placing request.

Placing requests for session beginning August 2019 should be sent to South Ayrshire Council's Educational Services, County Buildings, Ayr, KA7 1DR by 31 January 2019 for primary and secondary schools.
All parents/carers should be aware that if they choose to make a placing request they will no longer automatically be considered for a place at their catchment school.
Moved into the area
Children can still be registered at their catchment denominational or non-denominational primary school throughout the year. When registering your child you must bring their birth certificate and proof of your residence in the catchment area in the form of a Council Tax Notice or Utility Bill.
