Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

We asked for your views on changing the school holiday pattern, which would involve taking the last week off the summer break with pupils returning to school in the second week in August and having a 2 week October holiday.

You said

83% of Clackmannanshire respondents said that they would prefer 2 weeks in October and a shorter summer holiday.

Refer to People Committee meeting of 30/1/20 at which the results of the consultation were reported on.

We did

Following the results of the consultation across Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling it was agreed that the new pattern of school term dates including a 2 week October holiday will start from August 2022.

We asked

Public engagement ran from 9th January to 1st February 2019.  We put forward a range of options for savings and feedback was received via a variety of methods.

You said

The budget engagement attracted a mixed reaction from the public. We received 696 responses to the online survey.

Three public events were held, we received letters and written representations, held meetings with parent council, young peoples’ groups and 3rd sector organisations/groups impacted by the proposals.

Four petitions were also received and these were presented to the Place and People Committees on 19 February 2019.

We did

Councillors met on 6th March 2019 and agreed the budget for 2019/20. All respondents’ views were taken into account. Savings of £4.810million and growth of £1.4m were approved

Capital Receipts of £2.041m were used to support the budget and Council Tax has been increased by 4%.

A new Funding Officer post has been created to maximise income opportunities for the Council and a Transformation Fund of £500,000 has been created to support the Council's transformation programme.

The Council continues with the corporate redesign programme as approved by Council in March 2019.

Details of all budget decisions made can be accessed on our website.

We asked

Clackmannanshire Council is proposing to change the primary schools Admissions Policy so that pupils that can demonstrate affiliation to the RC church by means of baptismal certificate, would remain entitled to enrol at their catchment denominational school in these circumstances, but all other pupils would be required to submit a placing request.

It is proposed that the revised policy would take effect from school session 2019/20 but that the revised policy would not apply to children currently attending either of the two Roman Catholic Primary schools.


You said

21 responses were received to the online consultation. 14 of these agreed with the change and 7 disagreed. A response to those who disagreed is contained in the report.

At public meetings, Church representatives and parents had no objections. The Education Scotland report detailed no objections.


We did

Based on the feedback from the consultation process and the conclusions of the Education Scotland report, a report will be made to the meeting of the People Committee of Clackmannanshire Council on 14 March 2019 recommending acceptance of the change in the Admissions policy.
