Circumstances in which duty does not applyS

3(1)The duty imposed by sub-paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 2 does not apply—S

(i)make it necessary for the authority to take an additional teacher into employment,

(ii)give rise to significant expenditure on extending or otherwise altering the accommodation at or facilities provided in connection with the school,

(iii)be seriously detrimental to the continuity of the child’s education,

(iv)be likely to be seriously detrimental to order and discipline in the school,

(v)be likely to be seriously detrimental to the educational well-being of pupils attending the school,

(vi)assuming that pupil numbers remain constant, make it necessary, at the commencement of a future stage of the child’s primary education, for the authority to elect either to create an additional class (or an additional composite class) in the specified school or to take an additional teacher into employment at the school, or

(vii)though neither of the tests set out in paragraphs (i) and (ii) is satisfied, have the consequence that the capacity of the school would be exceeded in terms of pupil numbers,

(c)if the education authority have already required the child to discontinue attendance at the specified school,

(3)The duty imposed by sub-paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 2 does not apply where the acceptance of a placing request in respect of a child who is resident outwith the catchment area of the specified school would prevent the education authority from retaining reserved places at the specified school or in relation to any particular stage of education at the school.

(4)Nothing in sub-paragraph (3) prevents an education authority from placing a child in the specified school.

(5)In sub-paragraph (3), “reserved places” means such number of places (not exceeding such number or, as the case may be, such percentage of places at the school or relating to the particular stage of education as the Scottish Ministers may by regulations prescribe) as are in the opinion of the education authority reasonably required to accommodate pupils likely to become resident in the catchment area of the school in the period from the time of consideration of the placing request up to and during the year from 1st August to which the placing request relates.
