Buchanan Primary School Update

Buchanan Primary School


The school roll at Buchanan has naturally fallen, and on Monday 30th October the roll fell to zero. 


In situations such as this, Local Authorities may choose to consider “mothballing” a school (or a stage of education or a nursery class at a school).


A school can be mothballed where the school roll has fallen to zero and continues to be zero.  This is a temporary closure.  Mothballing is only appropriate for a temporary period and should be subject to regular review.


Given that there are currently no pupils attending Buchanan Primary School it is proposed that a paper is taken to the Education Committee in January 2018 to consider the mothballing of Buchanan Primary School.
