Elementary school; registration

When your child becomes of school age, you must register him or her at the elementary school.


Special notes

The elementary school comprises grades 1 to 4 and is the common school for six- to ten-year-olds.

Following on from early childhood education and upbringing in daycare centers, children in elementary school acquire basic skills in cultural techniques (reading, writing, arithmetic, digital literacy) as well as social and personal skills on which education and teaching in secondary schools can reliably build. The elementary school promotes the children's joy of learning and discovery as well as their motivation to learn in all their diversity. In line with the competency orientation underlying the LehrplanPLUS Grundschule, children in elementary school acquire knowledge and skills with which they can master everyday situations and participate increasingly responsibly in social and cultural life.


School registration is to take place in March.

Applications for early enrollment must be made at the latest at the time of school registration at the respective Sprengelschule.

If the parent or guardian requests a deferral, citing important reasons, the school administration will review the request, possibly involving the guidance counselor, school physician and kindergarten. A decision on the deferral of the child should be made from the time of school registration until the start of school, but in exceptional cases it is still possible until November 30.

Required documents

  • The parent or guardian should come to the school registration in person with the child.

  • child's birth certificate

  • if applicable, custody order and divorce decree

  • Proof of school entrance examination must be submitted by the start of school at the latest.

    (Parents should inform the school about findings that are important for the organization of lessons and school life)
