Proposed Closure of Gergask Primary School

On 14 March, the Highland Council took the decision to permanently close Gergask Primary School.

All school closures in Scotland must be ratified by Scottish Ministers.

The Council has notified Scottish Ministers of its decision. They have an 8-week period from the date of the local authority's decision to decide if they will intervene by issuing a call-in notice.

Within the first three weeks of that eight-week period, they will take account of any relevant representations made to them by any person on whether the decision should be called in, or not called in, for review by a School Closure Review Panel. 

Anyone wishing to make a representation to the Scottish Ministers is asked to email or write to the School Infrastructure Unit, Scottish Government, 2-D (S) Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6QQ, by midnight on Wednesday 3 April 2024 at the latest.

Full details of the reasons for the recommendation are contained within the Final Report and associated papers, which can be accessed using the link below.
