BANFF Primary is one of nine schools in Aberdeenshire that will have repairs carried out after an investigation into a wall collapse at an Edinburgh school.

After tonnes of masonry fell at Oxgangs Primary School in January, 2016 an independent inquiry investigated defects in schools built under Public Private Partnership (PPP) or Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts. The report made recommendations to the construction industry, as well as local and central government.  Councillors have now agreed an action plan for Aberdeenshire.

Nine schools built using the PFI/PPP model were highlighted as requiring work.

As well as Banff these are Portlethen Academy, Meldrum Academy, Hill of Banchory Primary, Kintore Primary, Longside Primary, Oldmeldrum Primary, Rothienorman Primary and Rosehearty Primary.

Remediation works are due to be carried out during the summer holidays.
