New south Edinburgh primary school on Canaan Lane
We are planning a new school in south Edinburgh on Canaan Lane to be open for August 2021. Planning permission was granted in November 2019.
We provided an update on 14 November 2019.
We provided an update on 13 November 2018.
We held an information event on 13 June 2018 and showed proposed designs of the new school.
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.
Affected primary schools
- James Gillespie's
- St Peter's RC
- South Morningside
