Joining Ratho Primary School

We are always delighted to welcome new families to our school and are more than happy to give tours of our school in preparation for starting with us.

The date for registration of new school entrants is advertised in all local nurseries, in the local press and on the council’s website

Registration for Primary One and First Year Secondary takes place in November each year. Pupils should be registered in only one school for their catchment area.  Parents will be provided with information about the school, when they register their child. Parents of Primary One learners registering for the following year are invited to visit the school on Wednesday 2nd November.

Parents who want to send their child to a school other than the catchment school must make a placing request.  Please refer to section four of this handbook for more information on placing requests.

Parents of pupils who have moved into the catchment area or, who wish their child to transfer to the school, should contact the school office for information.
