Talks continue on Mallaig schools
PARENTS and Councillor Ben Thomson have met with Highland Council officials after a decision on cluster management in the Mallaig Area School Group was postponed.
Councillor Thomson said it was ‘good to hear the director of education admit it is a unique schools group and that more time will be spent considering it’.
He also said the director seemed to realise the need for careful consideration over the logistics of a Small Isles cluster and that a Mallaig mainland cluster would need an extra deputy head teacher.
He added: ‘It was good to hear officials are proposing to increase spending on Mallaig schools.’
