Consultation on new south Edinburgh primary school approved by council

A public consultation will commence in August 2015 to consider options to deal with the primary school capacity issues in south Edinburgh.

There are three options outlined:

  1. establish a new primary school on the combined site of the existing South Morningside Primary School Deanbank temporary annexe and the adjacent Oaklands Care Home;
  2. extend the capacity of South Morningside to four streams by establishing a permanent annexe of the school accommodating the nursery to P3 stages on the combined site of the existing Deanbank temporary annexe and the Oaklands Care Home; or
  3. maintain and improve the existing accommodation arrangements by permanently establishing South Morningside’s Deanbank temporary annexe including the provision of a new gym and relocating the South Morningside Primary School nursery to the Deanbank site.
