Consultation summaryProposal to realign the catchment area of both Kirklandpark and Wester Overton Primary Schools to more appropriately link new housing developments to the local non-denominational primary schools
BackgroundThe current catchment areas of both Kirklandpark and Wester Overton Primary Schools are an historic boundary arrangement that, due to significant changes in the housing and population distribution within Strathaven over time, the Council feels should be redrawn to more appropriately link housing areas to each of these non-denominational primary schools.
Why are we consulting?Under the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010, if a local authority proposes to alter the catchment area of a school, it must undertake a statutory consultation with key stakeholders affected by the proposal.
