Following statutory consultation in June 2014, the Council decided to proceed with the closure of St Joseph’s Primary School and St Andrew’s Primary School, and the construction of a new school on the St Andrew’s Primary site.
In December 2014, following a call-in period, Scottish Ministers gave consent to this proposal.
The new £10 million school will be built for approximately 450 pupils and will open in school session 2017/18.
The design of the school will be based on the reference design developed for the new Lairdsland Primary.
Architects will work closely with pupils, staff and the local community to adapt this design for the needs of the pupils, parents and local community.
If you have any questions or comments on the design process to date, please contact the Primary School Improvement Programme.
