There are a total of 14 primary schools in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, with the majority of these located in Guernsey's parishes. Primary schools in Guernsey accept children from a specific area of the Island known as their catchment area. For pupils in Alderney, they will attend St Anne's School which is a school for 4-16 year olds. There is also a small school on the island of Herm, which is partnered with Vauvert primary school in Guernsey.
In addition to the mainstream primary schools, there are two Catholic primary schools known as Voluntary schools. Applications for the Voluntary schools can be made if children have been baptised Catholic. These schools do not have defined catchment areas, but generally families living in the north of the Island will attend St Mary & St Michael and those living in the south will attend Notre Dame du Rosaire.
Le Rondin School & Centre is the Bailiwick's special primary school and is at the forefront of special education provision. The school specialises in social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and can cater for up to 150 pupils and has the facilities that one would expect in a mainstream primary school with the addition of special sensory rooms and a hydrotherapy pool.
