School consultations and closure proposals
Current school consultations
Altnaharra Primary School
We have been seeking the views of local communities on the future of Altnaharra Primary School, which has been mothballed since February 2017.
We are 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 were sought over a period extending from 27 August 2018 to 26 October 2018. A public meeting was held on 10 October 2018 in Altnaharra Primary School.
The public consultation period has now closed. We will shortly be seeking the views of Education Scotland.
