Placing requests for East Dunbartonshire

Parents or carers who wish to apply for a school placing request can now apply online for East Dunbartonshire schools via the council’s website.

Many customers will find the new online system quicker and easier than the traditional means of submitting a completed application form via the post.

The online system will be up and running from Monday, January 11, and anyone wishing to make a school placing request for session 2016/17 should do so before the closing date - Tuesday, March 15.

Convener of Education, Councillor Eric Gotts, said, “It is our intention that our services are readily available and easily accessible and I’m pleased that parents or carers now have the option of applying for a school place at a time and place convenient to them.

I’m sure that anyone who applies via the website will find the process extremely straight-forward.”

The online application form is available at www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk/placingrequests and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Applications can also be made by requesting a copy of the application form at your local East Dunbartonshire Council Hub or by calling 0300 1234510.
