Primary school registration

The official registration period for a place at a primary school is from 14 January until 25 January 2019 for the school year 2019/20. You can register your child at any primary school from Monday to Friday from 8 am to 12 noon and on Tuesdays also from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Assessment of school readiness

In the course of primary school registration, the school readiness of your child is assessed as well. This means that the social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic and motor skills of your child are tested playfully to see whether she or he has already acquired the knowledge and skills needed to start school.

The school also takes a look at the kindergarten portfolio to gain an overall impression of your child’s abilities. The kindergarten portfolio documents the development of your child in kindergarten. Please remember to bring it with you to the primary school registration.

The result of the assessment is discussed with the parents immediately after it has taken place. Children who are not yet ready for school will receive special tuition in preschool for a year.
