Last year our son Andrew started school in Linlithgow, West Lothian. He was born in December 2008 which means that he started school aged four years and eight months. We soon realised he wasn’t ready for school, and asked the school and council if he could move back to nursery and re-start school a year later.
They said no. Eventually.
This site does two things. Firstly, it offers some advice to parents and guardians in Scotland on their rights, and on how to get heard. And in blog entries we’ll record our own pointless, needless fight too.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, or you’ve had difficulties dealing with your school or council on education, we’d love to hear from you – post your stories in the comments sections, or send them to us via our contact page.
