Hints
As part of the school structure reform, so-called language assessment measures have been implemented for school beginners since 2004. This finding is necessary because children whose German skills are not sufficient for successful participation in the classroom are obliged to take part in special language support measures in the year prior to enrolment. The registration of the newcomers to the school therefore already takes place in May of the previous year.

Sie müssen Ihr Kind etwa 15 Monate vor der Einschulung bei der für Sie zuständigen Grundschule persönlich anmelden. Häufig erhalten Sie hierzu eine Einladung. Erkundigen Sie sich vorher bei der Schule, welche weiteren Formulare sie neben der Geburtsurkunde und dem Impfpass benötigen.

Außerdem findet die Schuleingangsuntersuchung Ihres Kindes durch den Kinder- und Jugendärztlichen Dienst des Gesundheitsamtes statt. Hierfür erhalten Sie eine Einladung.
