Parents whose child or children is scheduled to start primary school in August, are being asked to register them from next week.

Children who attain the age of 5 years between 1 March, 2022, and 28 February, 2023, should be registered to start primary education from August 2022. Registration this year will once again be an online process and will take place from Monday, 10 January, 2022, until Sunday, 30 January, 2022.

Councillor John Bell, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are asking parents and carers to register online via the council website rather than the usual procedure of going to their local catchment primary school to register.

“We understand that not everyone will be able to access the online registration form, if this is the case then please contact our customer

services team on 01294 310000 who will be able to assist further.”

Further information on how to register your child can be found on the council’s website at or by telephoning 01294 310000.
