PE1130 Petition by Scott Reed calling on the Scottish Parliament, in light of the proposal to close Drummond Community High School in Edinburgh, to urge Scottish Ministers not to grant consent to school closure proposals where the school roll exceeds 80% of the school’s capacity.

PE1131 Petition by Wajahat Nassar, calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to consider the guidance issued to local and education authorities on the literature made available in local authority and school libraries.

PE1132 Petition by Sharon Miller, on behalf of the community of Sorn, calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to consider whether it is satisfied that sufficient recognition is given by local authorities, when considering the closure of a rural school, to the adverse impact the closure would have on rural sustainability and development, where there exists higher than average pupil attainment, attendance and capacity levels and lower than average cost per pupil and to the additional capital and other costs of transferring the pupils to another school and whether the directions and guidance to local authorities fully reflect such circumstances.
