New P1 registration

Aberdeenshire Registration Week for Primary 1 is 14th January to 18th January 2019. All children who reach their fifth birthday by 29th February 2020 are invited to register for Primary 1 for admissions in August 2019.  Aberdeenshire Education & Children’s Services has a common starting date for all its school in the middle of August in any particular year.  You will be informed of this year’s starting date at the time of registration at school.


Parents/carers are asked to visit the Primary school of their choice during Registration Week.  If this is not possible, please try and visit the Primary school by the end of February 2019.  During registration, please take along the child’s birth certificate as this is required as evidence of their date of birth, along with evidence of the parent/carers home address, (for example a recent utility bill or bank statement)


Aberdeenshire Education & Children’s Services make no provision to admit any children who are five after the end of February, unless that child has previously been registered and has commenced full-time attendance (excluding induction) in a state supported or Forces school and is transferring into Aberdeenshire.  In this case, the local authority can exercise discretion.  Registration for a nursery for playgroup does not count for the purposes of this exception”.
