Pupil service wins praise

Have your say

WEST Lothian Council’s pupil placement service has been praised in an independent review.

A team of resident volunteers looked at how children are allocated places in pre-school, primary one and first year at secondary school as part of the council’s citizen-led inspection programme.

They described the service as “professional, knowledgeable and customer-focused”, rating it as good in five of the seven categories considered, and adequate in the remaining two.
