What is deferred entry?
If your child’s birthday is between September 2019 and February 2020 (e.g. still 4 years old on the school start date in August 2019) you are entitled to defer entry to primary school if you believe your child is not ready for school. Only children whose birthdays fall in January or February will be considered for funding for a subsequent year at nursery, unless there are special circumstances. Further information is available in the ‘Guidance on Deferred and Early Entry to School’ available online at http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/878/schools/11/school_enrolment
Which is my local school?
Each school has a defined geographical catchment area (with the exception of denominational and some Gaelic Medium schools) and normally your child will attend your local catchment area primary school. School catchment maps are available online, you can search for your nearest schools at https://www.highland.gov.uk/downloads/download/678/school_catchment_maps
Can I request a school other than my local school?
You may make a placing request for your child to attend a school other than your local school. Information on placing requests can be found on the Highland Council website. It is important, however, that your child is registered at their local catchment area school in advance of making a placing request application.
Please note too that if a placing request is granted, transport is the responsibility of parents.
