Parents urged to register their children for school

Deadline for 2023 intake on Tuesday

Time is running out for parents who want to register their children for primary school on the Isle of Man.

Those due to start this year have to be signed-up by Tuesday (31 January).

Pupils are admitted to reception classes at the beginning of the academic year in which they reach their fifth birthday.

Letters will be sent to parents who have registered – either to their nursery or playgroup or to their home address.

Anyone considering delaying their child’s start to school – or whose child will not be educated in a government-run school – must contact the Department for Education, Sport and Culture.
