PLEASE HELP MY 4 YEAR OLD SON GET INTO THE SCHOOL HIS 9 YEAR OLD SISTER IS!
In January 2018 I had to put in a placing request for my 4 year old son to attend the same school as his 2 sisters (QuarryBrae Primary). I am out of the catchment area for my local school although it’s only 4 minutes and 36 seconds away from my home. As the placement request was unsuccessful due to the school being full. I then had to attend a panel at the City Chambers to where the outcome was the same unsuccessful! My little boy now has to attend his catchment area school Dalmarnock Primary which 55 minutes walking distance from my home! This is a) IMPOSSIBLE for me as I work and my 74 year old mother who doesn’t drive and picks my kids up while I work can’t be in 2 places at the one time . b) My 9 year old Daughter will understandably not move schools at this stage in her education and also leave her good friends who she's came to know over the years. My other Daughter attended QuarryBrae as did myself and younger sister my family know the staff as does my little boy. Dalmarnoch Primary is not an option for me as it is to far away. I’m having to phone QuarryBrae Primary and Wellshot Primary on the 13th of August just 2 days before the schools go back to find out If my boy has a place at either one of these School's. It breaks my heart not knowing if he'll be going to the same school as his sister in August its not fair! Please help me sign my petition in the hope the education board will see how unfair and unjustified this is. Thank you for your time and please don’t forget to sign �
