Enrolment Procedures



Infant Enrolment now takes place in November of each year and is usually announced through a directive from the local council. An announcement is made in the press and the parish priests will also make an announcement on the Sunday preceding the period of enrolment.

Parents should follow the council's online enrolment procedure, which can be accessed at

P1 registration for children starting school for August 2019 will take place during the second week of November. 

To register your child at the local catchment school you will need need

  • A digital copy of the child's birth certificate (The requirement to upload a birth certificate only applies to children who did not attend a nursery or pre-school operated by Glasgow City Council)
  • The name of the local school/centre you wish to register the child. If you are unfamiliar with schools within your catchment area, please use the council's school catchement lookup before completing the form.

It is usual practice for children to attend their local catchment primary school.

Check the local catchment primary school for your address.

If you wish to enrol your child for the start of the new school session in August 2019, they must have attained the age of 5 years between 1 March 2019 and the 28 February 2020.

Parents wishing to make a placing request for their child elsewhere must register in the first instance for their local school. They will then, if they wish, be able to complete a placing request.

Parents who live outside our catchment area but wish to enrol their child in St. Martha’s, should register for the school of their catchment area where they will be advised on placing request procedures.

Parents offered or seeking a place in the school are always very welcome to visit. If they telephone first, an appointment can be made

Pre-entrant Programme

St. Martha’s liaises closely with our local nurseries to ensure there is an effective programme in place for our pre-school children.

After registration parents and children are invited to St.Martha’s to view the range of materials and resources available, to meet their teacher and have an opportunity to speak with staff and become familiar with the school.

There is a liaison programme in place between St. Martha’s and the local nurseries to facilitate a smooth transition for the new entrants.

A common transition document has been produced to ensure correct information on progress is passed from our local nurseries to schools within the Learning Community.
