PARENTS of children due to start school this year must register their little ones by Friday, January 17.

Any child living in the West Dunbartonshire area that was born between March 1, 2015, and February 29, 2016, will be due to start primary in August.

They must be registered at their catchment school during this week.

West Dunbartonshire Council say it is vital that parents/carers contact their local catchment school for details of when to attend to provide the documentary evidence required i.e. child’s proof of address, birth certificate, baptismal certificate.

An online registration form, which includes links to placing request, early entry and deferral applications, is available at west-dunbarton.gov.uk/startingp1.
