SOLE SELF-RUN SCHOOL HANDS BACK CONTROL

The only self-governing school in Scotland has been returned to Stirling Council's control.

St Mary's Episcopal primary school in Dunblane opted out of council management seven years ago, but education minister Jack McConnell has signed an order which puts the school back.

The primary school was one of two to become self-governing when the Conservatives allowed schools to opt out and receive government funding directly.

The move follows the Scottish Parliament's standards in Scotland's Schools Bill, which was passed last year.

Ann Strang (Lab) said: 'It is now up to the council and the school to work together to ensure a smooth transition.'
