Questions

Question Title

* 1. There are no denominational primary schools in Quarriers Village, Kilmacolm, Inverkip and Wemyss Bay.  Parents in these areas can and often choose to send their children to the local non-denominational primary school because of the travelling distance to their nearest denominational primary school.  In such circumstances parents have the choice, at the end of P7, to seek admission for their child to either a non-denominational or denominational secondary school in their catchment area.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this part of the policy (please tick one box only)

Question Title

* 2. To what extent do you agree or disagree if the following change to the policy was proposed. 

'Only children who have a baptismal certificate into the Roman Catholic faith whose parents have selected to send their child to the non-denominational catchment primary school, will have the choice to seek admission to either the non-denominational catchment primary school, or denominational school assigned to their address'.

Question Title

* 3. We would like to know your opinion on the possibility of changing the village schools of Kilmacolm, Inverkip and Wemyss Bay as associated primary schools for denominational secondary schools.  This would mean that that:

1)  St. Ninian's Primary School would be the only catchment school for those pupils choosing a denominational education who live in the villages of Inverkip or Wemyss Bay.

2) St. Francis Primary School would be the only catchment school for those pupils choosing a denominational education who live in the villages of Kilmacolm or Quarrier's Village.

Question Title

* 4. We would like to know your opinion about how the Council could manage provision if there is a continued pressure on places for Roman Catholic Education at St Columba's High School (and in the West of Inverclyde).

One idea is the creation of a joint denominational and non-denominational campus at Wemyss Bay Primary School. This would essentially create an annex to St. Ninian's Primary School but be based at Wemyss Bay Primary School.

Please tick one box only.

Question Title

* 5. Another idea is changing one of the primary schools in either Wemyss Bay or Inverkip to be a denominational school if there is significant demand for a Roman Catholic education in those two villages.

Please tick one box only.

Question Title

* 6. In the future, there may be a need to review the catchment areas for both Notre Dame High School in Greenock and St. Columba's High School in Gourock.  This may mean that the schools currently associated with each of these schools may have to change.

We would be interested in your opinions on the possible re-alignment of catchment areas to denominational schools in the West of Inverclyde.  This might mean, for example that one of the primary schools currently associated with St. Columba's High School becomes associated with Notre Dame High School.

To what extend do you agree with this? Please tick one box only.
