School consultations and closure proposals

Current school consultations

Altnaharra Primary School

We are seeking the views of local communities on the future of Altnaharra Primary School, which has been mothballed since February 2017.

The Council is proposing to discontinue the provision of education at Altnaharra Primary, and to divide the school’s catchment area between those of 3 neighbouring schools; Tongue Primary School, Farr Primary School and Lairg Primary School. 

The views of parents, school pupils, the local community and others will be sought over a period extending from 27 August 2018 to 26 October 2018.  A public meeting will be held on 10 October 2018 at 6.30 pm in Altnaharra Primary School.
