We are looking for final feedback on proposals to amend the catchment areas of Yarrow Primary School and Philiphaugh Community School in Selkirk.

A statutory consultation was held earlier this year and the feedback received has now been incorporated into a formal proposal to amend the catchment zones.

All comments and suggestions from this new consultation will presented to our Executive Committee on 21 January 2020 along with a recommendation based on the outcome of the entire consultation process.

The new consultation is available until 21 November to give people the opportunity to submit any further comments or make alternative suggestions. The report and relevant documentation is available on our online consultation tool.

They will also be available during the consultation period at:

  • Philiphaugh Community School
