GCC Consultations

As you may remember, earlier this year, Glasgow City Council Education Services conducted  two public consultations on –  1) to amend secondary school entry criteria and 2) placing request criteria for mainstream schools.

 

a)    Secondary School Entry Criteria

 

The purpose of this consultation was to align the entry criteria across all 30 Glasgow city council mainstream secondary schools by making all 30 delineated secondary schools, i.e. the single entry criterion for all secondary schools being a defined geographical catchment area.

 

b)    Placing Request Criteria for Mainstream Schools

 

The purpose of this consultation was to review and improve the placing request criteria for mainstream schools (primary and secondary).

 

Education Services’ responses to the consultations will be considered by the City’s Administration Committee at the end of January 2019. The responses are now available on the Glasgow City Council website at www.glasgow.gov.uk/schoolconsultations.

2. Type school name into the search box. Our app will open.

3. Go to the Settings page of the app and in the Channels section select the groups you would

like to join to be notified about news, events, forms, letters, information etc

4. On the Homepage of the app, click on the padlock at top right to register yourself.

5. Next time you open the app it should go straight to your school and remember the settings

6. Note: the design and features of the new app should look the same, except that the app

logo and notification headings will be in the identity of “Scot Ed”.

If you have any problems with this, please see Mr Feist.

Apologies again for any inconvenience that this causes.  Our previous app will work for a short amount of time, but will soon be unsupported and so will not run as effectively as it once did.
