Brechin rural cluster proposals

Brechin rural cluster proposals update

As of Friday 16 November 2018, Tarfside and Lethnot primary schools were permanently closed.

This decision followed the completion of a statutory consultation undertaken in line with the requirements of the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010.

The decision was not called in by Scottish Ministers and the council received consent to implement its decision on Monday 12 November 2018.

The former Tarfside and Lethnot catchment areas have been permanently rezoned to Edzell Primary School

In response to feedback received from the communities, the council halted the consultation to close Stracathro Primary School.

A final consultation report regarding Stracathro will go to committee in January 2019 and the Scottish Government will then be informed of the decision.

The final part of the Brechin rural schools project will be the expansion of Edzell Primary School.
