Placing Requests

All schools serve a local catchment area.  These catchment areas are known as delineated areas in legislation.  Information on particular school catchment areas is available at each school or from Education and Social Care.

Every parent has a right, without necessarily giving reasons, to make a request to Education and Social Care to have their child enrolled in the school of their choice. This right is called a placing request. At the time of registration, parents have the opportunity to make a placing request. The right to make a placing request can be exercised at any time by completing the following form.

Information on School Admission and Placing Requests is also available in other languages:
