If you wish to defer your child’s school entry you should still register your child at their catchment primary school and complete the Additional Year/Deferred Entry application form which will be available from week beginning 7 January. The closing date for this is 31 January 2019.
The entry to a primary school in East Dunbartonshire is at the start of the new session in August each year. If your child’s birthday falls between September 2014 and February 2015 you are entitled to apply to defer entry to primary school.
Children whose birthdays fall in January and February are entitled to an additional year’s funding of Early Learning and Childcare (ELC).
Children whose birthdays fall between 1 September to 31 December will be considered for funding by The Early Years Community Assessment Team (EYCAT).
