Press release -

Moray schools registration

Parents and carers are reminded that registration takes place next week for children who will be starting school at the beginning of the new session in August.

Children should be registered at their local primary school, irrespective of which school their parents or carers would ultimately like them to attend.

In Elgin, new primary school catchment areas became effective from January 5.

The exception is the new south-east Elgin zone – coloured yellow on the accompanying map – which will only come into effect when the new school opens.

In the intervening period, children living in the area marked solid yellow on the map should enrol at New Elgin Primary School. Children living in the area hatched red, and indicated by an arrow, should enrol at East End Primary School.
