The council’s education head has moved to assure parents who raised concerns about a brand new city school that problems will be ironed out promptly.
A number of “snagging” issues were highlighted during the opening of Tayview Primary School last Friday, including worries about an out of use traffic crossing system and the lack of smart classroom technology.
The school’s chaplain, Rev Robert Mallinson, noted there was no crossing system in place on Friday morning as the school was opening and that a crossing patroller had not been put in place.
Rev Mallinson said he was also disappointed by the lack of smart technology items, such as interactive whiteboards, which had been promised before the school’s opening.
Convener of Dundee City Council’s children and families service, Councillor Gregor Murray, said a number of “snagging” issues were to be expected in any new build, and that as soon as the crossing issue had been raised, a patroller was put in place by the afternoon.
Cllr Murray said a meeting between the parent council and the school would be held in due course.
