School Dean Park Primary School
Proposal Pupils from the Cherrytrees area of Currie Primary would go to Dean Park Primary from August 2019.

Dean Park Primary would continue to go to Balerno High, which would increase in capacity from 850 to 1,200 pupils
Who is affected No pupils living in the Dean Park Primary catchment area would be affected by these proposals.

All pupils in the Dean Park Primary’s catchment area continue to go to Balerno High when they reach S1.

New P1 pupils living in the Cherrytrees area of Currie Primary’s catchment would go to Dean Park Primary from August 2019.
Reasons for the proposal There is not enough space at Currie Primary.

Dean Park Primary can be extended to provide extra places.
