Although it is usual for children to attend their local catchment area school, parents have the right to request that their children be placed in a school other than their local catchment area school. This is called a Placing Request.
Education Authorities have a duty to grant placing requests wherever possible. We will try to grant your request, provided there are places at the school you choose. Requests for entering either primary or secondary school can be made online or to Main Reception, Ground Floor, Dundee House, 50 North Lindsay Street, Dundee, DD1 1NL between Monday 2 December 2019 and Monday 3 February 2020. Any requests made after this date will still be considered, but it is possible that places in certain schools may no longer be available.
