To register

If you register a child at the school or if you collect a "place application unsuccessful" document, you need to take the following documents with you:

  • Your child's place allocation notification
  • Your child's identity card or the gummed health insurance label
  • Valid proof of your child's domiciliation address
  • Did you enter a work address? In that case, take a valid proof of employment with you.

The school will check whether the details are correct and complete:

  • Domiciliation address or work address
  • (Where relevant): a statement that the mother does not have a diploma of secondary education

 

How should I forward these documents to the LOP?

  • Ideally, scan them in and e-mail them to lop.brussel@vlaanderen.be
  • Or send them by post to:
    LOP Brussel Basisonderwijs
    Koning Albert II-laan 15 - bureau 4A29
    1210 Brussels
  • Or hand them in to at the same address.
     

If any documents are missing, the help desk will contact you.

What happens if do not forward these documents to the LOP?

If you do not forward the documents to the LOP on time, your child will lose its priority status. Its name will remain on the application list however.

What happens if these documents are incorrect?

If the details you furnished at the time you applied for a place are incorrect, your child will lose its place in the ranking order. Our advice? Complete all the details truthfully.
