Secondary transfer arrangements for children within Craighead Primary catchment

At the meeting of the Education Committee on Thursday 5 September 2019, it was agreed to hold statutory consultations, including public meetings, on the secondary transfer arrangements for children who live in the catchment areas of Craighead and Lennoxtown Primary Schools.

This page is for those people interested in commenting on the proposals for Craighead Primary. There is a separate page for those wishing to comment on proposals for Lennoxtown Primary.

The Council is proposing that:

  • children, who live in the catchment area of Craighead Primary in Milton of Campsie should be zoned to Kirkintilloch High School as a non-denominational secondary school within East Dunbartonshire; this would be in addition to the current options of Kilsyth Academy, in North Lanarkshire and St Ninian’s High School in East Dunbartonshire.. 


Details of the public meeting are as follows:

Craighead PS consultation on 1 October 2019, 6.30pm to 8pm  in Kirkintilloch High School

An informal consultation process was launched in May to seek the views of the school communities and feedback showed a significant demand for both primary schools to be zoned to a non-denominational secondary school in East Dunbartonshire, in addition to St Ninian’s High School in East Dunbartonshire and Kilsyth Academy in North Lanarkshire.  

Any change to the catchment area of a school or a proposed change to the admissions arrangements requires the Council to carry out a formal statutory consultation as detailed in the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010. This involves consultation with a range of stakeholders including parents and pupils of all the schools affected.

The next step is for the Council to publish consultation reports and allow a period of three weeks to elapse before it makes a final decision on them.

The consultation will run from Monday 9 September until 30 October 2019.
