School Estate Management Plan
West Lothian Council fully support the school estate strategy Building Our Future: Scotland's School Estate vision for 21st Century schools that provide well designed, well built and well managed schools that support national and local priorities, inspire children, young people and communities.
The Property Management and Development services is very much open for business. Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, our staff are currently working offsite and we would ask that all enquiries be emailed to email@example.com where a member of our team will access and action them as necessary. Whilst we have robust business continuity measures in place, customers may experience some impact to service delivery. We are grateful for your patience and understanding at this challenging time. Should you require emergency assistance out of hours, then please contact the council's emergency out of hours service on 01506 280000.
The council is aiming for a future school estate that:
- Meets our aspirations.
- Responds to evolving needs.
- Is effectively managed and maintained over the long term.
In order to achieve this vision, the 21st Century school will deliver better public services through the school environment that focus on:
- The child at the centre - meeting the needs of individual children.
- The school at the heart of the community - meeting the needs of the community.
This School Estate Management Plan is fundamental to the achievement of this vision. It is a key management tool for planning, allocating resources, implementation of planned investment and monitoring progress.
The Council is currently developing a new School Estate Management Plan in 17/18.
