We asked stakeholders for their views on the proposal to establish a new primary school and its associated catchment area within the land at Craighall, Musselburgh.
Of the responses which provided an overall view about the council’s proposal, almost all expressed support. In terms of the three individual elements of the proposal, a clear majority of respondents to the questionnaire (88%) support the proposal to establish a new school and its associated catchment area. A greater proportion of respondents overall oppose the element to host initially at Stoneyhill Primary School before relocating until the new permanent facility is built (72%).
East Lothian Council has made the decision to go ahead with the proposal to establish a new primary school and its associated catchment area within the land at Craighall, Musselburgh, subject to the adoption of the emerging LDP in a format that would require these new education catchment arrangements and facilities to be delivered. In taking its proposal forward, the Council will continue to engage with stakeholders over its planned transition arrangements for children who will attend the new school and those children who attend Stoneyhill Primary School.
