Before you make a placing request, you should enrol your child at their catchment school. If you are unsure of your catchment school, you can find out here.  

Before you begin

We'll ask you for information about your child, including the school they currently attend, and the reasons why you are applying for a placing request.

If the placing request is for a child aged 16 or over, they should complete the placing request themselves.

Full details of how placing requests are processed, including information on placing requests for P1 and S1, specialist provisions and denominational schools, can be found in the Placing Request Policy
