Maybury Primary School received planning approval on 1 November 2021. Maybury will offer capacity for up to three streams (630 primary pupils and 128-pupil nursery pupils) and its catchment area will cover the new housing developments at Cammo and West Craigs. The school is designed to be a two-storey, low-energy school, meeting the Passivhaus standard. The school will feature a 2G sports pitch and various internal facilities, envisioned to be used by the wider community.
Maybury was originally scheduled to open in August 2023. However, the scheduled opening date had been based on the site for this new school being made available by the developers in January 2021. Various site issues have forced that date to change. Confirmation of the developer’s project delays and the anticipated completion date of the site infrastructure which would allow handover of the school site is being sought.
