Netherthird Primary School Decant – Transport Arrangements

Liddell’s Coaches will provide the transport arrangements for the Netherthird Primary School decant. Four coaches will pick-up and drop-off pupils in the large car park area on Craigens Road, on the opposite side of the road from Netherthird PS.

Arrangements are as follows:

  • Coach 1   P1 and P1/2 pupils
  • Coach 2   P2/3, P3 and P5Y pupils
  • Coach 3   P4 and P5X pupils
  • Coach 4   P6 and P6/7 pupils

A member of school staff  will be allocated to each coach to support the pupils on the journey.  Coaches will arrive at 8.30am each morning and will depart at 8.50am prompt.

In the afternoon, the coaches will leave the decant schools at approximately 3pm and are expected to arrive back in Netherthird at 3.15pm.

We would ask parents to kindly refrain from parking in the designated coach parking area particularly around pickup and drop-off times to ensure safe access as much as possible.

Arrangements for new Primary 1 pupils are as follows: 

Pupils should arrive at the coach area in Netherthird at 9.15am with the coach leaving at 9.30am prompt. Pupils and one parent will be transported by coach to Greenmill PS to allow pupils to be accompanied to their new surroundings. Parents will be transported back to Netherthird at approximately 10am. This process will be repeated at the end of the school day with P1 parents being transported from Netherthird at 2.10pm to collect pupils at Greenmill at approximately 2.30pm. Please note these arrangements only apply to the first school day on Tuesday 22 August 2017.


11 August 2017

A programme of structural inspections undertaken during the summer holidays has identified an issue with the ceilings in classrooms at Netherthird Primary School.

As a precaution, we have been advised that these classrooms should be closed. The Early Education Centre at the school will remain open, as this is unaffected.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause, but trust parents will understand that we will not compromise on matters relating to their children’s safety
