Poileasaidh Clàraidh | Admissions Policy
All nursery places are allocated in line with GCC’s Admissions and Charging policy and nursery staff will be happy to advise you how this policy operates when you apply for a place for your child. A written statement detailing GCC’s policy is available from all establishments. If you want a copy, please ask for one.
A local area admission panel will meet at regular intervals throughout the year to decide how nursery places will be allocated. The panel consists of the Depute Head Teacher of BSGG and the Heads of Centre for Rowena Nursery School and Lyoncross Nursery School who also offer Gaelic-medium early years education in Glasgow. Where applicable, a representative from divisional offices and representatives of other agencies involved in supporting children and their family’s e.g. Social Work Department, Health Board may also attend.
Clàr Thagraidhean | Register of Applications
Application for nursery places are accepted all year round and each establishment will keep a register of all applications. The information contained in the applications will be considered by the admissions panel to assist in the allocation of places.
Parents can ask to see their application form at any time. If circumstances change which affect the application you should speak to the Head of Establishment.
In order to process applications, we require you to provide paperwork including your child’s birth certificate and proof of your address. Full details of other paperwork required is available at the nursery. For families who are not EU nationals, further information is required and you will be advised of this.
Ag Ullachadh don Bhun-sgoil | Preparing for Primary
Most of our children will continue onto a Primary offering Gaelic-medium education either in Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu, Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghleann Dail, Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Bhaile Ghobhainn or within the new upcoming school in the East of the City which is currently an annexe of Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu.
A transition programme to support children, families and staff is established at the start of each session and staff from all establishments work in partnership to carry out the programme to ensure the smooth journey from nursery to school.
