Primary One enrolment

Information is available on the Aberdeen City Council website about enrolling your child for Primary One. The process is online and you will have to upload evidence of your child’s date of birth and address. If your child is a baptised Catholic, please upload your child’s baptism certificate.

Children who will reach the age of five on or before the start of the new school session in August 2021 should start primary school in August 2021. Children who reach the age of five after the start of the new school session in August 2021, but before the last day of February 2022 may also be enrolled for primary school in August 2021.

Joining Primary One

We keep in contact with parents about the admissions process and offer places as soon as Aberdeen City Council allow us to do so (usually in March/ April). Once families have accepted places, we invite parents and children into school on several occasions to share information. Initial meetings may have to be online this session.

This is a two way process where we

  • Start to learn about your child and how we can help him/ her to settle well into Primary One.
  • Share practical information and tell you about our school ethos, curriculum, support for pupils, policies and routines.

We do not have our own nursery class. Staff work closely with parents and we contact and visit all the different pre-school settings and nurseries to plan smooth and happy transitions into Primary One for all our children. We share information about learning and the support that helps children to feel comfortable – friendships, likes and dislikes, soothers and motivators…

Our school handbook is available here. Please phone 01224 485611 or email stpeters@aberdeencity.gov.uk if you would like more information.
