About the school
Due to the school roll at Buchanan Primary School falling to 0 in October 2017, the school is currently mothballed. This is a temporary measure, and subject to review in Spring 2019. Any pupils whose catchment school is Buchanan Primary School currently attends Drymen Primary School. If a child is enrolled for P1 in August 2018 at Buchanan Primary School, we will take this as an expression of interest, and this will be taken into consideration in the aforementioned review. For further information please contact Schools, Learning and Education on 01786 404040.
Education Scotland has responsibility for evaluating the quality of pre-school education, all schools, teacher education, community learning and development, further education and local authorities. They also publish reports about services for children and evaluate child protection services.
Each school has it own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request.
