Making a decision on schooling
Parents in Rutherglen and Cambuslang who want to send their children to a school outside their catchment zone still have time to make a placing request.
But they are being warned there will be no guarantees they will get a place at the school of their choice.
South Lanarkshire Council say they will have made decisions on requests made before March 15 by the end of this month.
Any requests made now will see parents having to wait two months to find out if it has been successful.
Parents are also reminded that they must also register their child at their catchment school if they want to guarantee them a place at school.
In a post on their website, the council say: “If you live in South Lanarkshire and decide to make a placing request, we will not reserve a place at your catchment school until we have made a decision on the placing request. If your placing request is not accepted and all places at your local school are filled, you will be offered a place at the next nearest appropriate South Lanarkshire school.
“If your child is due to start primary one in August, you must still register your child at the catchment primary school even if you intend to make a placing request.
“If your application is unsuccessful we will contact you and provide further information on what to do next. If you wish to appeal the decision, you can complete a placing request appeal application form.”
The council have more information on placing requests on their website.
Education support can be contacted on 0303 123 1023.
