This document is designed to provide parents and guardians with information on their role and that of local authorities, Education Scotland and the Scottish Ministers, within the school closure process. This version replaces the one published in 2010.

Executive Summary

The Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 sets out the process which must be followed when a local authority proposes a change to a school in its school estate. This process was amended in 2014 via the Children and Young People Act (Scotland) 2014.

This leaflet provides guidance to parents and guardians who may find that their child's school is proposed for closure. It explains the roles of the parent or guardian, the local authority, Education Scotland and the Scottish Ministers.
