Results of informal consultation carried out earlier this year on a number of school estate issues, including a joint community learning campus that would have involved Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross Councils, will be outlined at a meeting on Monday (Sep 9).

Consultation responses in Dundee supported the tri-council plan, but the committee will be told that there is not an agreed position across the three councils, and it is not planned to take forward a joint 2-18 campus at this time.

Proposals for the future of Braeview Academy and Craigie High School will be brought forward later this year, the counci’s children and families service committee is to be told at its next meeting.

The committee will also hear that formal consultation on primary provision in the Western Gateway will be oulined in December as well.

Committee members will also hear that options that could have seen Barnhill Primary pupils choosing to attend Monifieth High in the future will not go ahead because of the position on the joint learning campus.

Informal consultation considered possibilities around Braeview Academy and Craigie High School. The committee will be asked to approve a recommendation that further work is carried out on options and that a report is brought back in December.

Children and families service convener Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “I would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to the informal consultation.
