West and south west schools review

Your feedback

We collected feedback to find out what is important to you before we progress to any formal consultation. We used

  • an online form
  • workshops organised with parent and community councils.
  • direct feedback from parent and community councils.
  • drop in sessions.

We received a lot of feedback from the communities around Currie, Balerno and Wester Hailes about the proposals in the informal consultation. It is clear from this feedback that the important themes include

  • Balerno High, Currie Community High and Wester Hailes Education Centre as valued hubs that bring all ages together
  • Infrastructure, such as roads and traffic, safe routes to school, healthy options for walking and cycling and the cost of travel to school
  • School performance and continuity of education
  • Environmental concerns
  • Planning with regards to the current land and buildings and projected populations
  • Woodlands School
  • Community needs for Currie, Balerno and Wester Hailes.
