Enrolment Procedures


Registration of children starting Primary One in August takes place in January. Dates and times are given in the local press and we also place notices in local shops, churches and nurseries.

If you are considering enrolling your child at Carleith Primary, you and your child are very welcome to have a look around the school by contacting us to arrange a suitable time.

Carleith forms part of a local school and nursery transition group which meets throughout the school session to plan children’s transition to primary school. The nursery children are invited to attend a number of school events throughout the year and are involved in a series of planned visits from January through to June. We have found this joint transition work with the nurseries to be very successful in enabling the children to settle easily and confidently into school life.

The children are assigned a buddy at their initial transition visit. Buddies are P6 and P7 pupils. The buddies help the children to settle into school and are there help your child in any way that they can.

In May/June at our open afternoon, staff have an opportunity to meet with the children and their parents and there is a focus on preparing for starting school. Planned curriculum information sessions provide more detailed information about Curriculum for Excellence with a particular focus on the Primary One Curriculum.

Enquiries outwith specified enrolment dates about enrolling your child at Carleith can be made at any time by contacting the school office.
