Three Glasgow primary schools have had applications for self-governing status rejected by the Secretary of State. Queenslie, Levern and St Bonaventure's were facing closure before choosing to ballot on opting out. School boards have until February 28 to appeal.
At Levern, a second ballot was required before the decision to proceed was reached. Just over half the eligible parents then voted.
Queenslie parents also went to a second ballot but only a third voted in the decider. At St Bonaventure's, just over half the parents voted in the first ballot, with a majority supporting opting out.
