If your child will be five years of age on or before 28th February 2018, they are eligible to enrol for Primary 1.
Children born between 1 March 2013 and 28 February 2015 are entitled to a funded Early Learning and Childcare place.
The new session starts on 15th August 2017.
We are pleased to announce that for enrolment into school or early learning and childcare, a new enrolment process has been developed to enable parents and carers to register children for school places online.
The P1 enrolment week for Highland schools is Monday 30th January to Friday 3rd February 2017.
For Early Learning and Childcare places it will be Monday 13th February to Friday 17th February 2017.
Once you have enrolled your child online, the school will contact you to arrange an induction.
Further information on completing the online form, the enrolment process, catchment areas, Gaelic Medium education, school transport and placing requests can be found online at www.highland.gov.uk/schoolenrolment or visit your local primary school during enrolment week.
A paper copy of the enrolment form can still be completed at your local school office during enrolment week. Please note that if you are enrolling in person at a school, you are required to take your child’s birth certificate and proof of your address with you.
Shinty after school club today is cancelled due to the weather. Children will be contacting parents / carers to organise lifts home if they need to.

Thank you to all the staff and parents who helped with our nativity today.
Currently, we have some severe weather forecast at the end of the week (Friday 23rd December), coinciding with the end of the school day and Christmas travel.
The Highland Council have advised us that currently we should assess conditions Thursday night and Friday morning. We had hoped to assist children and families in planning travel with an early closure, especially in light of the travel disruptions and warnings, however it is the responsibility of parents or carers to decide if a pupil should attempt to travel to school, by transport or on foot, in adverse weather conditions. The Council encourages full attendance at school but in severe weather conditions the safety of pupils is much more important.
Please can we ask all families to follow the adverse weather policy, however if you are travelling for Christmas, we understand you may travel earlier rather than later and therefore if your child is absent from school on Friday, please would you inform the school office.
We will assess conditions Friday and if we have to close, we will update the school phone line first.
First dial the Highland Council`s access number –
0800 564 2272
and then enter the school`s pin number when asked –
PLEASE KEEP THIS IN A SAFE PLACE SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE INFORMATION TO HAND.
If we are able, we will then update facebook and the school blog.
UPDATE: 13:45 Wednesday 21st December:
We have had further advice that schools may make local decisions for early closure on Friday. Please keep a very close eye on facebook / the school blog and our telephone line on Friday morning.
Thank you to all parents who supported the Christmas Tree Lighting. The children sang carols around the Christmas Tree and had a lovely evening, they even met Santa!
