Online Placing Requests

As you may already be aware, the Education Committee approved the recent consultation on proposed new arrangements to school admissions, the transfer of pupils from primary to secondary school and placing requests.

 School admissions, pupil transfers from primary to secondary and placing requests will be administered in line with the new arrangements from January 2017 and beyond.  Any placing request applications for school places in academic session 2017-18 submitted before January 2017 will be accepted however, please note that they will be processed in line with the new policy; there will be no need for parents/carers to submit another application.
