South Edinburgh primary schools
We are planning a new school in south Edinburgh, to be built on a site at Canaan Lane for August 2021. We updated parents in the affected schools on 13 November 2018.
The number of children in south Edinburgh's primary schools is higher than it has been for 30 years. Schools are under pressure to find space for all of their pupils. The problem is biggest at South Morningside Primary, where pupils are split across three sites.
We consulted on possible changes for primary schools and catchments in this area from 24 August to 6 October 2015.
