Glencorse Primary School: consultation
It is proposed that education provision at Glencorse Primary School be discontinued with effect from 25 June 2021 and the catchment areas of Mauricewood and Roslin Primary Schools be extended to include the current catchment area of Glencorse Primary School.
This proposal will bring educational benefits to the present and future users of the affected schools, and help ensure that the Education budget is more sustainable, as the costs per pupil in under-occupied schools are excessive. This is in line with our duty to secure best value.
Reducing the burden of unnecessary accommodation allows more equitable funding of education across all Midlothian schools within the financial resources available.
Overall there are no environmental impacts as a result of this proposal.
Overall, there are strong educational arguments in favour of this proposal.
