Keane Wallis-Bennett, 12, died yesterday morning when a free standing wall in the school’s gym changing room fell on top of her.
The council will now be carrying out urgent checks of similar walls despite a full survey of schools last year.
A council spokesperson said: “Police investigations are ongoing, however we understand that the wall that collapsed was a free standing modesty wall in a changing room.
“A full survey of our schools, including Liberton High School, was carried out in 2012/13 and no concerns with this wall were identified.
“However, as a precaution, specialist council building services staff will be surveying all similar walls in schools where we know that they exist. The survey work will begin early tomorrow (2 April).
“As a further precaution, a full survey will be carried out on Liberton High School in the coming days before the main school building re-opens to pupils.”
