The consultation was held between 8 May and 18 June when views were sought on the following:

  • to build a new Intergenerational Learning Campus in Jedburgh
  • to close Howdenburn Primary School and Nursery
  • to close Parkside Primary School and Nursery

  • for P6 and P7 pupils from Ancrum Primary school to transition to the Intergenerational Learning Campus following the closure of Parkside Primary School
  • that the primary and secondary catchment zones within Jedburgh be rezoned to the Intergenerational Learning Campus.
