The cabinet secretary for education said new build primaries at Tulloch and Kinross will be transformational for local families and could raise attainment.

Mr Swinney toured both sites as work got under way on £23 million worth of construction. Kinross Primary will see its capacity rise to 566 pupils with dedicated nursery provision for 64.

The twin project is the start of a wider estates review that will upgrade 15 primaries and secondaries across the region, benefiting more than 4,000 pupils a year.

Mr Swinney said the new Tulloch and Kinross buildings – as well a new secondary at Bertha Park – were being jointly funded by the local authority and the Scottish Government.

I have seen first hand the transformational effect of new school buildings. Modern, state of the art facilities can inspire students, staff and parents and make a positive difference to learning outcomes.

“That is why this Government remains committed to improving schools in Perth and Kinross and throughout the country.”
