Enrolling your child in municipal primary and lower secondary school

The procedure for enrolling your child in the municipal primary and lower secondary school, depends on whether you already live here when your child reaches school age or whether your child is school-aged when moving here.

Already living here

If you live here before your child reaches school-age, your child will automatically be enrolled at a school in the district to which you belong. You will receive a letter from the school informing you of the further process, when your child approaches school age. Receiving this letter, you must contact the school in order to learn more.

Arriving with school-aged children

If you arrive in Denmark with your family and school-aged children, contact the municipal school administration. Here you will be informed of your child’s possibilities of learning Danish in special “welcome classes”. When your child speaks and understands Danish he/she will gradually participate in a number of subjects in Danish classes.

For more information on schooling and how to sign your school-aged child up for school, please contact the municipal department of children and adolescents by phone or email, and they will provide you with more information.
