Decision to permanently close Lethnot and Tarfside Primary Schools


16th November 2018

As of Today, Lethnot Primary School and Tarfside Primary School will be permanently closed. This decision follows the completion of a statutory consultation undertaken in-line with the requirements of the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010.

The decision was not called-in by Scottish Ministers and Angus Council received consent from the Scottish Government to implement the recommended closures (282/18 and 283/18) on Monday 12 November 2018. The former Lethnot and Tarfside catchment areas have been permanently re-zoned to Edzell Primary School

The proposals are part of Angus Council’s Angus Schools for the Future programme.

Angus Schools for the Future is the most ambitious plan Angus Council has ever had for the development of our school buildings.

The 30-year programme sets out projects for the short, medium and long term. Initially schools have been ranked, in accordance with the principles agreed by the council in September 2017, and a series of projects have been prioritised for the period 2018-47.
