Additional support needs provision - Consultations

Consultation subject
School estate consultation in relation to elements of additional support needs provision.
Summary details
This statutory consultation relates to the establishment of the new Additional Support Needs School in Earlston and the formal discontinuation of the spectrum classes at Wilton Primary School in Hawick and St Ronan’s Primary School in Innerleithen. A non-statutory consultation on the naming of the new school in Earlston is also being held.
Full details
We are looking for feedback on the following proposals in relation to our additional support needs provision:

• the proposal that the new additional support needs build in the village of Earlston is established as a school
• the proposal that the spectrum support class provision at Wilton Primary School is discontinued
• the proposal that the spectrum support class provision at St Ronan’s Primary School is discontinued

We are also looking for ideas for the name of the proposed new school and the reasons for any suggestions. We will then be inviting everyone who submitted their ideas to take part in a vote to decide what the school will be called.

We would ask that you take the time to read the proposal paper before completing the questionnaire. This is available to download as a PDF below.

Paper copies of the relevant documentation are also available at:

• Wilton Primary School
• St Ronan’s Primary School
• Earlston Primary School
• Earlston High School
• Hawick Library
• Innerleithen Library
• Earlston Library

We are holding three public meetings to give you a chance to hear more about the proposals and answer any questions you may have:

• Wilton Primary School (13 September, 7-9pm)
• Earlston Primary School (14 September, 7-9pm)
• St Ronan’s Primary School (15 September, 7-9pm)
