Srop-in session on the future of three north-east primary schools are set to take place in the coming weeks.

Clatt, Easterfield and Fisherford schools are all current mothballed with no pupils and as part of option appraisals which will be carried out over their potential permanenet closure, sessions will be held next month.

A drop-in session on the future of Fisherford School will take place on October 3 from 5pm until 6.15pm in the General Purpose Hall at Auchterless School, Auchterless.

A drop-in session on the future of Easterfield School will take place on October 3 from 6.45pm until 8pm in Community Room at Turriff Primary School, Turriff.

In May 2021, the decision was made to mothball the primary schools; Mothballing is a temporary closure when pupil numbers fall below a certain level.

There have been no requests for any new pupils to enrol since August 2021 and both schools have continued to be mothballed.

Aberdeenshire Council is now carrying out an Options Appraisal, which will consider all available information.

As part of this, it is important the community present their views at the meeting.

If you cannot attend you can email the Learning Estates Team at learningestates@aberdeenshire.gov.uk with any comments or queries.
