Review of Inverurie Primary School catchment area

The council is proposing to amend the existing primary school catchment areas for Kellands School, Strathburn School and Uryside School, with effect from August 2020.

In 2017 the new Uryside School opened at its current site to the North East of the town of Inverurie. The school was built to replace Inverurie Market Place which was situated in the centre of Inverurie.  When the new school was planned we decided to keep the existing catchment area and review them once the school was operational and potential trends could be established. The rising pupil numbers in Inverurie and the opening of Uryside School has prompted the need for this review of the catchment areas.

The consultation will run from 5th June 2019 until 6th September 2019. You can complete our consultation online survey. Please submit all comments on the proposals by this date so we can take them into account. 

A public meeting will be held on Thursday 29 August 2019 at Inverurie Academy at 7pm. All are welcome to attend.

Blairs Housing Development rezoning

The consultation ran from 28th June 2017 until 29th September 2017. 

A report on the findings of the consultation will be presented at Kincardine and Mearns Committee and then Education and Children’s Services Committee at a future date.

We are proposing to formalise the arrangements for the pupils living in the Blairs housing development and that these pupils should continue to be zoned to Lairhillock School for primary education and then to the secondary school for the cluster which is Mackie Academy. New pupils from the Blairs housing development should be educated at their newly zoned secondary school with effect from August 2018. 

This proposal was prompted by the decision made by Aberdeen City Council to remove the Blairs housing development from the Cults Academy catchment area.
