The date for registration of new school entrants is advertised [in all local nurseries] in the local press and on the council’s website www.edinburgh.gov.uk. Registration for Primary One takes place in November each year. Pupils should be registered in only one school for their catchment area. Parents will be provided with information about the school, when they register their child.
Parents who want to send their child to a school other than the catchment school must make a placing request. Please refer to section four of this handbook for more information on placing requests.
Parents of pupils who have moved into the catchment area or, who wish their child to transfer to the school, should contact the school office for information.
Regardless of whether your child has attended Dean Park Nursery School you must apply for a Primary 1 place in the School. Attendance at Dean Park Nursery School does not guarantee a place at Dean Park Primary School.

Enrolling in other years at Dean Park Primary School
If you wish to enrol your child at Dean Park Primary School in P2-P7, an admission enquiry should be made to the school office. You will be asked several questions in relation to this enquiry and if applicable an appointment will be made for you to meet with Senior School staff and have a tour of the buildings.
Should your enquiry lead to an application to the school a visit must be made to complete the relevant administration prior to your child starting Dean Park Primary School. No undertaking will be given to guarantee a space in the school until proof of property purchase or lease is made available to the school.
