If your child is entering P1, you should enrol them at their catchment area primary school in January of the year you want them to start school.

If your child already attends a nursery class within your catchment school, you still need to enrol for primary school. If you're new to, or moving to, the Stirling area, you should enrol your child at their catchment area primary school as soon as you can.
