Proposal to Relocate Victoria Primary School to a New Building in the Western Harbour

Closed 17 Mar 2017

Opened 30 Jan 2017


It is proposed that Victoria Primary School be relocated to a new school site in the Western Harbour, and that a catchment change be undertaken with Trinity Primary School to address accommodation issues in the Trinity and Victoria areas.

It is also proposed that the catchment boundaries of Victoria Primary School, Holy Cross RC Primary School, Trinity Academy and St Thomas of Aquin's RC High School be realigned so that they include sections of the Western Harbour area currently not contained within any catchment area.

The full details of the proposal are available in the statutory consultation paper.  A summary paper, current and proposed school catchment areas, and a list of directly affected addresses can also be accessed from the links to related documents at the bottom of this page.

Once you have considered the proposal, it would be helpful if you could take time to complete the short questionnaire below.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council has a legal obligation to carry out a statutory consultation under the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 as amended by the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. The proposal put forward will have implications for families and we want to hear the views of anyone affected.
All comments made during the statutory consultation period will be recorded and represented in a final report which it is anticipated will be considered by the Council in June 2017.
