P1 Applications for August 2023

It is almost time to apply for your child’s Primary 1 place!

Whilst placing requests for P1 can be submitted at any time before the 15 March, we encourage you to apply for P1 from 16th January 2023 to 27th January 2023.

Before you apply for a school place online you will need to set up an account on Aberdeen City Council if you do not have one. This can help you track the progress of your application.

You will need to provide evidence of where you live, your child’s birth certificate and any other information specific to your child. You can upload these to the form when you apply. Photographs of documents will be accepted as long as the whole document can be seen clearly.

The following link will take you directly to the online application: https://integration.aberdeencity.gov.uk/service/School_applications___apply

Please see Aberdeen City Council website for more information: https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/education-and-childcare/starting-primary-1 


Deferring entry to Primary 1

Children who are resident in Aberdeen City, and whose fifth birthday falls between 21st August 2023 and the end of February 2024, will automatically be entitled to an additional year of funded ELC if parents or carers request that their child’s entry to primary school is deferred.

If you are considering deferred entry, please see the Deferred Entry Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) information online. This is intended to help if you are considering whether your child should start Primary 1 or defer entry to school. It can be accessed through the following link: https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/deferred-entry-primary-one  or please ask at the school office for a paper copy.

As always, please feel free to ask a member of staff if you have any questions.
