Update on the consultation about our school estate

All parents will receive a letter on Monday 4th February explaining that there will be a consultation about our school estate. Full details will be shared about a proposal to move our school community to the current Riverbank site. This will not happen before 2022 and, once Riverbank move to their new school, the proposal states that improvements are planned to the school before St Peter’s RC Primary School moves there.

We look forward to engaging fully in this consultation. There will be meetings on Monday 4th March in St Peter’s School (2pm – 3pm) and Riverbank School (7pm – 8pm). There will also be a meeting at St Columba’s RC Church, Braehead Way, Bridge of Don on Wednesday 13th March at 7pm – 8pm.

Information shared on the Aberdeen City Council website on Friday 1st February is reproduced below:
