Nursery Schools closure confirmed

Edinburgh Council doing its bit to help newly qualified teachers today by announcing that the two Nursery Schools it wanted to close (remember the closures were 'called in' by the Scottish Government) are indeed to shut their doors in a few days time :-(

No mention though of Westfield Court Nursery School, even though there was an earlier promise of clarification regarding its status ...

... technically, Westfield Court is just shut on a temporary basis at the moment - and parents who had kids there before that temporary closure, don't yet know (formally) if it will open again at the start of the new term in August? Pretty disgraceful, if you ask me.

I know full well it won't open again in August - but someone, somewhere needs to have the moral courage to formally confirm its closed for good --- after all, the "informal decision" was taken well over a year ago in the local SNP/Lib-Dem 2010 Budget :-((
