Report on the outcome of the consultation relating to the re-alignment of catchment areas of Achahoish and Tarbert Primary Schools

Background

In May 2014 Achahoish Primary School (PS) Parent Council made a formal request to the council to consider rezoning their current catchment area. This request was supported by Tarbert Academy Primary School (PS) Parent Council.

The existing boundary between the current catchment areas of Achahoish PS and Tarbert Academy PS is shown in Appendix 6. The request by Achahoish PS Parent Council was for the catchment area to be increased. The preferred choice for boundary change is for Achahoish School to Tiretigan Farm, Kilberry, this is also shown in Appendix 6
