The new primary school at Bertha Park & future of Ruthvenfield Primary School pre-consultation

Closes 16 May 2021

Opened 3 May 2021


Perth and Kinross Council Lifelong Learning Committee has approved a new build primary school to be located at Bertha Park adjacent to Bertha Park High School. A catchment needs to be created for the new school. The catchment review will also consider the future of Ruthvenfield Primary School.

We are looking to gather the views of parents/carers and the wider community who will be impacted as a result of the formation of a new catchment area for the new school at Bertha Park and the future of Ruthvenfield Primary School.

Information you provide will inform the options appraisal which will be presented to the Council’s Lifelong Learning Committee. Any information you provide, and which is included within the options appraisal will be anonymised to ensure no individual can be identified.

Why we are consulting

Education and Children’s Services are seeking the views of parents/carers of any child/children currently attending primary school and/or children under the age of five living in the catchment areas identified as part of the catchment review. If the catchment area changes, it could mean that your catchment school for your address would change.

Education and Children’s Services are also seeking the views of the local Ruthvenfield community.
