School roll capping in Inverness for 2018-19
Due to current pressures on school rolls and following an analysis of school roll forecasts, The Highland Council is ‘capping’ or limiting school rolls and reserving places in some Primary Schools in Inverness for the 2018/19 academic session (beginning August 2018).
The schools affected are Kinmylies Primary, Duncan Forbes Primary, Smithton Primary, Hilton Primary, Holm Primary, Lochardil Primary and Milton of Leys Primary.
Merkinch Primary is capped for this current 2017/18 session. This will be lifted for next session, 2018/19, as the roll forecasts show a gradual decline in the total roll for this school.
The Council will do its best to accommodate all pupils in their preferred choice of school. Priority will be given to children within a school’s catchment area, and then to siblings of pupils already in a school.
