ConsultationCrosshouse and Castlefield Primary School catchment realignment
StatusCompleted
Consultation summaryProposal to realign the catchment area of Crosshouse and Castlefield Primary Schools.
BackgroundThe pupil population density of the Greenhills area has shifted over recent years and the school roll of Crosshouse Primary School has increased significantly while the pupil roll of Castlefield Primary School has been reducing. It is felt that this would be an appropriate time to redefine the catchment areas of both schools to take cognisance of this change. There are currently no potential housing developments identified in the Castlefield Primary School catchment area. However, there is currently house building underway in the Crosshouse Primary School catchment area plus there are other development sites with planning consent to build units totalling almost 400 over the next 7 years.
