PARENTS fighting to ensure that catchment changes at a crowded city primary do not separate brothers and sisters are set to win their campaign for a sibling guarantee.

Education bosses have recommended that a catchment change at Towerbank Primary in Portobello includes proposals that would see pre-school siblings of current pupils guaranteed admission, instead of just being given priority under the placing request process.

However, the recommendations are still subject to final approval during a meeting of the full council later this month.
