Parents have the right to choose a school for their children to attend other than the catchment school - this is commonly known as a placing request.
School placement request application form
The Council has a duty to grant such requests wherever possible.
You can download a Placing Request Application Form for emailing or printing to make a placing request.
The Scottish Government produce a A guide for parents on choosing on a school and the placing request system which gives information for parents in Scotland about choosing a local council school.
It gives a general explanation of the law relating to these placing requests and sets out the procedures that parents and local councils have to follow.
If your child has additional support needs you will find advice including information about choosing a school and your appeal rights in The Parents' Guide to Additional Support for Learning published by Enquire, the Scottish advice service for additional support for learning.
This booklet cannot give a definitive interpretation of the law. That is a matter for the Courts.
