The Parent Council has now submitted its formal response to the consultation on the proposed catchment area changes and relocation of Victoria Primary School to a new site on the Western Harbour. You can read it in full in our downloads area.
The Parent Council accepts the proposed change of catchment area for our school. However, we also urge the Council to ensure that the need for necessary investment at Trinity Academy is addressed in the near future.
These changes are driven by the rising rolls in the primary schools in this area. It is also clear that the ‘bow wave’ of those rising rolls is currently in P5 and likely to further increase the pressure on Trinity Academy’s roll. City of Edinburgh Council papers have identified Trinity Academy as already having issues with its core facilities to meet its existing capacity and forecast roll increases will increase these pressures, with no solution currently identified.
We want to ensure that when we welcome increasing number of students to the school, they have the best possible environment and resources for learning.
