You have the right to appeal the decision to refuse a placing request.

Your appeal must be made to the Director of Educational Services in writing within 28 days.

Please write to:

Chief Education Officer
West Dunbartonshire Council
16 Church Street
G82 1QL

You are entitled to make only one appeal during a 12 month period.

The appeal will be heard by an appeal committee.

If your placing request is then refused by the appeals committee you can approach the Sheriff. This acts as a final court of appeal.
