It is clear from our campaign that there is overwhelming support from all over Scotland and beyond, that rural schools provide
a good education and are a major focus for rural communities.
Additionally, the rural communities fully support the new school builds and improvement proposals which is part of the the same
buildings programme. Every primary school child in Midlothian deserves to receive quality education in their own local community.
We have had support from children, parents, grandparents, ex-pupils, communities in rural AND urban areas, MPs and MSPs from all
political parties, local religious leaders, farmers and farmworkers across Midlothian, small businesses, all levels of
Midlothian Community Councils, Women's Guild, Nursery and Baby Groups, village hall committees and supporters across the world.
These series of pages cover some of the wealth of evidence and support that has been submitted to the council.
