Ministers have been urged to match a pledge by the UK Government to give siblings the right to attend the same school - even if places are over-subscribed - amid concerns over brothers and sisters being split up at a popular Edinburgh primary. Parents at Towerbank Primary in Portobello are facing the possibility of having to send pre-school children to a different school from their brothers and sisters and believe there should be a national policy on the issue.The parents claim that dropping children off at school up to half an hour late would add up to 95 hours to an academic year, while visiting two schools would increase traffic and pollution.
