Children usually attend their catchment school. However, parents may make a written request to place their child in any school under the management of an education authority. Such a request is known as a placing request. The online application form for Renfrewshire schools is available on our website
or by telephoning: 0300 300 0170 if you do not have access to the website.
Information concerning our schools, and the procedures to be followed in making placing requests, is available from every school. This information is also available from Renfrewshire Council, Children's Services, Renfrewshire House, Cotton Street, Paisley, PA1 1LQ. (0300 300 0170), from our website
, and in our public libraries.
Parents of children due to start school in August 2022, whether or not they wish to make a placing request, should follow the instructions on the registration of children, which will be published in the press, during the week commencing 18 October 2021.
Placing requests for all schools, for session beginning August 2022, should be sent to children's services by
15 March 2022.
