School enrolment explained: a video

The deadline for submitting primary school applications is 30 April, and for kindergartens, it is 4 May. We invited a primary education expert and experienced advisor, Martina Kurowski from Vicinis, to explain the enrolment process.

You can watch an interview with her. In the video, she focuses on:

  • the explanation of the Czech school system,
  • the process of registration to a primary school,
  • the concept of catchment schools (and why there’s no need to worry about it),
  • the dates to remember.

Watch the webinar:

(Martina talks for some 15 min; for the rest of the time in the video, she answers questions from the audience).

The registration process takes place during the month of April, during which you have to deliver the signed application form(s) to the selected school(s). Applications can also be sent by registered post or data mailbox or delivered in person.
