Overview
We want to hear your views on the proposed change to Preston Lodge High School catchment area and the establishment of a new primary school at Blindwells.

• There is significant house building proposed for the Blindwells new settlement (LDP Proposal BW1).
• To accommodate pupils who will eventually live in planned housing developments, a new primary school will be established in the Blindwells area providing primary education and early learning and childcare provision.
• It is proposed that the new Blindwells catchment primary (and early learning and childcare) school is established at Cockenzie Primary school, through a “hosting” arrangement, until the new school building is complete.
• We are also proposing to alter the Preston Lodge High School and St Gabriel’s RC Primary school catchment areas to include the Blindwells new settlement, currently in the Blindwells Secondary Catchment area.
