Public drop-in day for Tain School consultation
The public are being invited to have their say on the site for a new 3 to 18 school campus in Tain.
A drop-in day will be held in Tain Parish Church Hall, Queen Street, Tain between 10 am and 8 pm on Monday 30 June 2014.
Indicative layouts for each of the three sites under consideration will be on display and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and fill in feedback forms.
The sites under consideration are the existing Tain Royal Academy site, the existing Craighill Primary School site and a site at Kirksheaf Road. Details of each of these options are available on The Highland Council’s website at: www.highland.gov.uk/tainschool.
The new campus would replace the existing Tain Royal Academy, Craighill and Knockbreck Primary Schools and St Duthus Special School. Although this is not currently included in the Council’s capital programme, the consultation is being carried out to ensure that all the necessary information is available to Members in 2016 so that they can decide which projects will be next under the Council’s Sustainable Schools Estate Review.
The consultation will continue until 4 July 2104. A report on the outcomes of the community engagement will then be presented to the Council’s Education, Children and Adult Services Committee in August 2014. A decision on the timing of a statutory consultation on proposals relating to changes in education provision will be made by the Council over the coming months.
Members of the public are also invited to submit their comments as follows:
- via a discussion forum on the Council’s website at www.highland.gov.uk/tainschool
- by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; or
- in writing to: Ron MacKenzie, Head of Resources, The Highland Council, Care and Learning Service, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3 5NX.
