Primary 1 Enrolment - due now for children starting school in August 2022

primary 1 enrolment

If your child is going to be 5 years old by the end of February 2023, you can enrol them from now until the end of January 2022, for starting school in August 2022.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are reducing parental contact with schools. Parents/carers are asked to submit applications via school bags/post/electronically, where possible, along with supporting proof of date of birth and home address to the catchment school.

You can access the forms that need to be completed on our council website.
Once completed, the forms should be submitted to your catchment school.

Transition to Primary 1

Because our nursery is set in the heart of the school, the nursery children regularly gain insights into life in the primary school. They will become familiar with the Head Teacher as she is often in the nursery, they will meet up with the janitor and secretary as they move about the school and they will come to recognise the primary staff and pupils from open classroom doors and the playground. They will visit the office, the library and the gym hall – regular features in whichever school they go on to. Throughout the year, we organise relevant transition activities and discuss relevant information with the P1 teacher.

During the last term of the nursery year the nursery staff will begin more focused liaison with the Primary 1 teacher and children will start weekly visits to the Primary 1 classroom and will get to know their new Primary 1 teacher.

Learning Journals are used to pass on transition information from Nursery to Primary 1. At Moffat, we run a buddy system where we match a Primary 1 with a senior pupil. The nursery child is introduced to his/her buddy while still in nursery and the buddy then looks after the child in their first few weeks of Primary 1.
