East Ayrshire Council is reminding parents and carers of young children that school registration dates open next week.
If a child turns 5 between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018 they’ll need to be registered for school during the week commencing Monday 16 January 2017.
Parents/carers are asked to check the day(s)/time(s) of enrolment with your appropriate primary school and go with their child on the day.
Please bring the child’s birth certificate and proof of your residence in the catchment area, in the form of a Council Tax Notice or utility bill.
