Admission to Primary 1
An advertisement will appear in the local paper, usually in January each year before enrolment is due, inviting parents to contact the school of their choice with a view to enrolling their child. All children must have reached the age of 5 by the last day of February in the next year following their August start.
Parents wishing to enrol their children at Kinloss School are welcome to visit the school at any time. It is advisable to contact the School Administrator who will arrange an appointment with a senior member of staff. There is a full induction programme both for parents and children
entering Primary 1, which includes a variety of meetings.
Normally, children of primary school age are admitted immediately upon request of their parents. Children transferring to Kinloss from another school are usually placed in classes according to their age.
Examples of work from previous schools are greatly appreciated by the class teacher who will use this information to place the child in correct ability groups. It is essential for the school to have an emergency contact number for each child. Please notify the school immediately of any changes.
Transfer to Secondary School
Primary 7 pupils transferring to Secondary 1 at Forres Academy will attend classes for two days in June. During this induction time, pupils will meet staff and pupils from the other associated primary schools to Forres Academy and will begin to form friendships with them. There is close liaison between the two schools to ensure a smooth and happy transition for the pupils from primary education to secondary education. Throughout the year, there are several link projects which are curriculum based and are designed to let various departments at the Academy know of the skills and aptitudes of the pupils they will receive in the new session. There are also regular visits by Academy staff to the Primary School during their Primary 7 year.
