SCHOOLS REVIEW – COMMUNITIES DESERVE CLARITY

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has commented on the second phase of a schools review that sees a further five Perth & Kinross schools facing review, including two – Ruthvenfield Primary School and Cleish Primary School - in her constituency.

She said:

“First and foremost, staff, pupils, parents and the whole of the affected communities deserve clarity from the Council about what this review could mean for the future of their schools.

“It certainly doesn’t inspire a great deal of confidence that the example of an Options Appraisal provided in the Council’s FAQ was a school that was proposed for closure.

“The Tories now in charge at Perth and Kinross Council have shown themselves to be very keen to close down schools and, if that is what is in their minds for these schools, people deserve to know that from the outset.

“Rural schools, in particular, can play hugely important roles within the life of a local community.  This absolutely must not be a smoke and mirrors exercise, carried out to give a cloak of consultation to a decision that has already been taken behind closed doors.”
