Starting School and Enrolment

Enrolment for new Primary 1 pupils is usually in the January before they start. 

Deadlines for enrolment for 2023 are:

P1 enrolments will take place Monday 30th January to Friday 3rd February 2023

Early learning and childcare enrolments take place Monday 13th February to Friday 17th February 2023

Families moving into the area with school age children are advised to contact the school for enrolment. If you wish to visit the school prior to enrolment please telephone the school to make an appointment. Each school serves its own particular catchment area.  Pupils whose homes are located  in that area will receive priority in being allocated a place in the school. However, parents have the  right to specify the school in which they wish to place their child. Application must be made to the Area Education Manager, at Area Care & Learning Office, Fingal Centre, Viewfield Road, Portree, Isle of Skye, IV51 9ES (Tel: 01478 613697). 

Placing request forms can be obtained from:

Highland Council - School Enrolment


Transportation to and from school, for placing request pupils, is a parental responsibility.

Before starting School in August 2023, the new Primary 1 pupils will be invited to School for some induction mornings.

It is helpful if children entering P1 are able to get changed for P.E. and can go to the bathroom by themselves. If your child needs help, please let us know.


School Bag and PE Kit

Children will have reading books or other homework to take home every week.  Children are expected to have a pair of indoor shoes for wearing in school and for use in PE lessons.

Please label your child’s property, particularly items such as gym shoes, wellingtons and sweatshirts.

School Uniform

The school uniform consists of a purple sweatshirt, t-shirt or hoodie featuring the new school logo designed by one of our pupils.
