Enrolling your child in school
Placing your child
Choosing a primary school
Choosing a secondary school
We have produced a booklet describing the procedures for enrolling children in primary and secondary schools in East Lothian.
The booklet is in four sections.
- general information (for example, the law, catchment areas, Catholic Education, children with additional support needs, transport)
- enrolling your child in a school
- placing requests
- what happens when you make a placing request
Parents have the right to express a preference for a particular school that they want their child to attend. This is normally done by completing a non-catchment placing request form.
