The removal of Invergowrie Primary Schools status as an associated primary to Harris Academy from August 2021

The revision of catchment areas for Ancrum Road Primary School, Blackness Primary School, Camperdown Primary School, Tayview Primary School and Victoria Park Primary School from August 2021

Views have been sought on a proposal for the realignment of the catchment areas of Harris Academy’s feeder schools and the removal of Invergowrie Primary as an associated primary.

Further consultation on the proposals took place in August after the original period was cut short due to the coronavirus-related closure of schools in March. Following this, a revised proposal based on feedback was published last month.

It included a section on educational benefits for Invergowrie Primary School pupils if the proposal is approved and further clarity on projected pupil numbers.

A three-week period of consultation on the revised proposal opened between Wednesday November 18 and Wednesday December 9 for comments to come forward.

Education Scotland has also conducted its own engagement with stakeholders.

At the end of this exercise, and after careful consideration of any additional comments received, the council is now publishing the completed consultation report.
