Schools and educational establishments
Education Resources is responsible for 123 primary schools, 19 secondary schools and 5 additional support needs schools. These are grouped into 17 learning communities across the four main areas of South Lanarkshire:
- Cambuslang and Rutherglen

Each area is managed by a Head of Education (Area). The objectives and priorities set out in the Education Resources plan also feature in school improvement plans. A key priority for schools and establishments is the implementation of a Curriculum for Excellence.
