Report of the Executive Director, Children, Young People and Families



The Executive Director, People Services, submitted a report and commented upon a case where parents had expressed a wish for their child to be admitted to a secondary school of their choice.  The Executive Director stated that places in secondary schools had been identified by the City Council, in accordance with the published admission criteria, and it had been agreed that the Executive Director would provisionally allocate places at those schools where there were places available, up to the standard number/admission limit.  The Committee was requested to consider prioritising the pupil on waiting lists, within her respective category, for admission if and when places become available.




The Committee gave consideration to information provided by the pupil’s parents including evidence provided by a professional body and, arising therefrom, it was:-




RESOLVED: That consideration of the case be deferred to enable the Executive Director to obtain proof of address of the pupil.
