Proposal to Establish an Annexe of Kirkliston Primary School at Kirkliston Leisure Centre

Closed 9 Dec 2019

Opened 28 Oct 2019


The accommodation at Kirkliston Primary School is under pressure from rising rolls in the area.   Projections indicate additional accommodation is required to support the rising roll.   

Informal consultation has reinforced the community’s view that a new primary school is not supported because it would divide the community.   

Accordingly, it is proposed to establish an annexe of the primary school on the leisure centre site, some 500 metres from the school, which will accommodate P1 and potentially P2 pupils along with a new early learning and childcare facility.   

The proposal does not propose any changes to the existing primary or secondary school catchment areas.

The full details of the proposal are available in the statutory consultation paper. 

A summary paper, map showing Kirkliston Primary School's catchment area and a map showing the location of Kirkliston Primary School and Kirkliston Leisure Centre can be accessed from the links at the bottom of this page.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council has a legal obligation to carry out a statutory consultation under the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 as amended by the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. The proposal put forward will have implications for families and we want to hear the views of anyone affected.
