St Mary's to relocate to new campus

St Mary’s Primary School is to relocate to the new school campus on Rosewell Road, Bonnyrigg, due to open in 2019.

Councillors approved the recommendations

At a full council meeting on Tuesday, councillors approved four recommendations after hearing the outcome of a public consultation and a report by Education Scotland.

More about the proposals

The proposals will mean that when the new school campus opens on Rosewell Road:

  • St Mary’s RC Primary School will move from Polton Street to the new campus on Rosewell Road;
  • Strong communications links will be maintained between the staff of both Burnbrae and St Mary’s PS and council officers to ensure a smooth transition into the new campus with a clear plan on shared campus working.
  • School travel plans and parking arrangements will be reviewed to ensure any new and enhanced measures required are in place for the new campus opening;
  • Pupils and staff will be fully involved in designing the layout of internal and external spaces at the new campus, planned for August 2019.

Stakeholders were consulted

The statutory consultation ran for six weeks until 19 June 2017.
