Have your say

four-year-old Ashton Munro is stuck at home after he was refused a place at the same primary as brothers Kenneth, seven, and Kyle, five.

His parents, Kenneth Munro and Karen Brooks, have decided to home school their son as they say it would be impossible to drop their children off at two schools at the same time.

Ashton was refused a place at Gilmerton Primary because it could not hold all out-of-catchment pupils.

Mr Munro, 31, from Gilmerton, said: “I’m absolutely fuming. He is missing out on his education because of this. The council said we can hold him back till next year but there’s no guarantees we will get him in.”
