Admissions

Primary School Enrolment

Children are of compulsory school age on the first school entry date from their fifth birthday. If their birthday falls on or before the last day in February, they may attend school from the previous August and must be registered to start school during the January registration week.  These registration dates are advertised in the local press.

When registering children for the local catchment primary school at the start of school:

  • Parents and carers are welcome to visit before registering at Tulloch Primary School during the January registration week.
  • Complete and hand in the Pupil Registration Form to the school.
  • The child's birth certificate, a current Council Tax notice and a recent utility bill must be brought along at time of registering.

Places within all Perth and Kinross non-denominational primary schools are allocated first to children who live within the school catchment.

To check Tulloch Primary School catchment area please refer to the Perth and Kinross Council website.

Tulloch Primary School has a programme in place to support all children who are preparing to begin in Primary One and there are planned opportunities for parents and children to meet the staff and hear more about being in school before starting full-time education.

Children starting Primary 1 in August attend school for a half-day only, for the first two weeks.

 

Enrolment outwith the local catchment area

Parents / carers can make a placing request asking that their child be placed in a school other than their local catchment area school.  Parents/carers who wish their child to transfer from another school should telephone the school to make an appointment with the Headteacher. Pupils will be allocated to classes appropriate to their date of birth.

 

Secondary School Enrolment

Parents/carers of Primary 7 children due to transfer to Secondary School will receive a letter in January from the Education Authority giving transfer arrangements. In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, Primary 7 pupils are involved in a carefully planned programme to support their move. This includes opportunities to meet school staff, to meet other pupils and to spend two days in their new secondary school.
