Enrolment at school

Please enrol the child to school by visiting the local school if:

  • you apply for permission for the child to start school a year earlier or a year later than statutory
  • the child’s admission to school has been postponed by a year
  • the child has been granted permission for extended compulsory education
  • you seek extended compulsory education, and the child continues in the pre-primary education for another shcool year. Hence, the basic education will be started one year later than statutory
  • you wish to switch the Swedish-language local school stated in the compulsory education note to a Finnish-language local school, or vice versa.

In the following situations you need to enrol to school by visiting a school other than the local school:

  • The child enrols to Swedish-language immersion education at a school other than the local school
  • The child wants to study an A1 language that is not offered at the local school
  • The child wants to enrol to a school other than the local school for other reasons (for example to another nearby school in the neighbourhood)

In these cases, enrol by visiting the school of your choice on Wednesday 26 January 2022 at 8 am-10 am. 

Please note that enrolment is carried out electronically also if you enrol by visiting the local school. Make sure to bring an ID, electronic identification credentials (such as online banking credentials) and the compulsory education note with you. Your child’s local school is stated in the compulsory education note posted to you in January 2021.

Schools will provide you with the necessary forms and can help you with any questions you may have.
