Final report on Burnbrae consultation in September

Many thanks to everyone who gave their views on plans to use the additional capacity at the new Hopefield joint campus in Bonnyrigg for all Burnbrae nursery and Primary 1 pupils.

Views will help shape final report

The views gathered will be considered by the council and Education Scotland.

The final report will be available before council decides

 The final consultation report will then be published in both electronic and printed form at least three weeks before the full council makes a decision on the proposal. 

The report is expected to be at the 26 September council meeting

 We anticipate that the final consultation report, setting out recommendations, will be presented to the meeting of the full council on 26 September 2017.

What the proposals will mean

 The proposals, if approved, would mean that when the new campus opens:

  • Burnbrae Primary School will operate over two sites under the management of one head teacher;
  • all nursery and Primary 1 school pupils attending Burnbrae Primary School will attend the Hopefield campus on Rosewell Road, and
  • all Primary 2 to Primary 7 school pupils attending Burnbrae Primary School will attend the existing school building on Burnbrae Road.

The consultation is now closed

The consultation ran for six weeks until 20 June 2017.
