As part of the Council’s strategy for Additional Support Needs (ASN) provision, East Dunbartonshire Council is considering proposals to develop enhanced support bases in some of our primary schools.
To more effectively meet the needs of a wider range of learners, it is proposed that:
- An enhanced support base should be established at Wester Cleddens Primary School, providing support to children with a range of additional support needs. The provision would be for children in the early years and primary stages.
- Castlehill Language and Communication Resource (LCR) should be renamed as an Enhanced Support Base in recognition of the wide range of needs already met by this resource at the primary level. The provision should be further extended to assess and support children’s needs in the early years.
- Language and Communication Resource services provided at Twechar Language and Communication Resource should be relocated to the enhanced support bases at Castlehill and Wester Cleddens.
- Children currently attending Castlehill and Twechar LCRs, as well as other children who meet the criteria for enhanced support, should access the base that most suits their needs and geographical location.
These proposals will take effect from August 2018.
The consultation will run from 13 November 2017 to 22 December 2017.
