Dear Parent or Carer,
Outcomes of the Statutory Consultation Proposing to realign the catchment areas of Currie Primary School, Nether Currie Primary School, Dean Park Primary School, Currie High School and Balerno High School
I am writing to advise you that on 2 May 2019 the City of Edinburgh Council approved the realignment of the catchment areas of Currie Primary School, Nether Currie Primary School, Dean Park Primary School, Currie High School and Balerno High School as per the proposals published as part of the recent statutory consultation.
The Council also approved that a further recommendation should be added to the report clarifying the wording of the sibling guarantee in the Outcomes report. This further recommendation is as follows:
To agree that all pupils attending Currie, Nether Currie or Juniper Green Primary Schools at the time the catchment changes are implemented and who reside in the Dean Park and Balerno Extension Area will be guaranteed a place at Currie High School if they wish to attend that school so long as they continue to live in that area when they enter S1.
The realigned catchment areas will take effect from 14 August 2019 and will affect P1 and S1 registrations for August 2020.
For more information, including the Outcome Report, please refer to the consultation hub.
