PARENTS are calling for “significant architectural changes” if a Clacks RC primary permanently relocates to Alloa Academy.

Carers and parents at St Mungo's RC Primary say they will be proactively engaging with a statutory consultation process on proposals to permanently relocate the school to Alloa Academy.

It comes after a majority of elected representatives at Clackmannanshire Council voted to launch consultation on the future location of the school.

The Catholic primary has been based at Alloa Academy since 2018 after water ingress forced the closure of its nearby building at Forth Crescent.

In the wake of the council decision, the office bearers at St Mungo's RC PS Parent Council told the Advertiser: “After St Mungo's RC Primary was decanted to Alloa Academy on an emergency basis in 2018, the parent council welcomes that action is eventually being taken to look at sustainable options for the future of our school. 

“The parent council will engage proactively with the process in order that the views of the school community are fully considered.”

The parent council said it is open to considering all options and will "support the best possible outcome for our children”.

And added: “However, we are clear that if the final decision is to remain within the Alloa Academy building, significant architectural changes will need to be made to maintain the school’s identity, preserve its legacy and ultimately offer the pupils the same primary school experience as others in Clackmannanshire.”

The consultation will run in line with the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010.
