Dear Parent or Guardian,
South West Catchment Review: Currie, Nether Currie and Dean Park Primary Schools and Currie and Balerno High Schools
The Education, Children and Families Committee will consider a report on Tuesday, 9 October 2018, seeking approval to undertake a statutory consultation to change the catchment areas of the schools identified above. These catchment changes aim to reduce accommodation pressure at Currie Primary School.
The statutory consultation proposed is in line with the recommendations approved by the Committee on 21 June 2018 following an extensive programme of informal consultation with these school communities.
A copy of the Committee report and draft consultation paper can be found on the Council’s website. Maps identifying the areas of proposed change form part of the draft consultation paper.
At this stage no decisions regarding the catchment changes have been taken. If the Committee approves that a full statutory consultation should be undertaken the whole community would be given the opportunity to have their say. The statutory consultation would start on 23 October 2018 and we will contact you on that date to provide further details.
