Committee votes on Gaelic school
The school plan has been a controversial issue in Skye
A Highland Council committee has voted 19 to 12 in favour of making Sleat in the Isle of Skye a dedicated Gaelic primary school.

It will contain an English-medium unit, which some councillors claimed had not been the subject of consultation.

Education director Bruce Robertson told the education commitee said that the proposal would be made to work to the satisfaction of all parents.

The proposal has still to go before a meeting of the full council.

Earlier this week the council received 289 submissions from the public on the proposal.

Sleat will be the Highland's first dedicated Gaelic primary school.
