RE: Primary 1 Registration for August 2021

- If you are in the City of Edinburgh Council area you must register your child for P1 at one of your catchment schools.
- Parents/Carers should have received their P1 Enrolment letter from Edinburgh Council telling them which schools are their catchment schools, based on the address we have on our systems for you. The letter will inform you what your catchment ND (non-denominational) school is and your catchment RC (Roman Catholic) school
