Inverasdale Primary School

Members of The Highland Council have today (17 December 2015) agreed the proposal to discontinue the provision of education at Inverasdale Primary School, re-assigning the school’s catchment area to that of Poolewe Primary School. 

A copy of the consultation report, together with the original proposal paper and all relevant appendices can be viewed on the council’s website at:

http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/893/schools_-_general_information/24/school_consultations

The Council is satisfied that implementation of closure is the most appropriate response to the reasons for formulating the original proposal identified by the authority. The detailed rationale behind this decision is set out in the consultation report. 

The Council has notified Scottish Ministers of its decision and provided them with a copy of the proposal paper and consultation report. Ministers have an 8-week period from the date of the Council’s decision (17 December 2015) to decide if they will intervene by issuing a call-in notice. Within the first 3 weeks of that 8-week period, they will take account of any relevant representations made to them by any person on whether the decision should be called in.

Anyone wishing to make a representation to the Scottish Ministers is asked to email schoolclosure@gov.scot or write to the School Infrastructure Unit, Scottish Government, 2-D (S) Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6QQ, by midnight 6 January 2015 at the latest.

Highland Council will await the outcome of Scottish Ministers’ considerations.
