Would I look like an idiot if I went as far as putting my primary school under the education section on my LinkedIn profile?

Why would it make you look like an idiot?
I haven’t seen a single person with it on their profile. It just seems weird because it’s the longest chunk of education yet it’s so disregarded lol

Because you don't receive any formal qualifications or experience from it.

Does it add anything of value to your professional profile? The answer is no.

So don't do it.

In my opinion the earliest education you should realistically put is GCSE results because some employers do specifically ask for certain GCSE subjects and grades for entry roles. You may wish to remove GCSE and A-Level results as you gain more relevant experience.
