We asked

We asked for feedback on the proposal to discontinue early learning and childcare provision at ABC Nursery.

You said

Main themes from comments received were around cost and availability of alternative childcare, the building condition, ABC Nursery current provision and location, staffing, 1140 hours provision and financial concerns.

We did

On 24 June 2021 at a meeting of the Clackmannanshire Council, it was decided to implement a closure proposal and to permanently discontinue ABC Nursery as a school. 

Results updated 4 Jun 2021



In May 2020, the ABC Nursery building was subject to emergency closure because the planned structural assessments were unable to take place due to the Covid-19 lockdown. There was a plan to reopen the building in August 2020.

Following a period of extreme weather, an emergency decision was taken in August 2020 not to reopen the building on the basis of Health and Safety.

Why your views matter

Before any final decision can be taken on a permanent school closure proposal, a formal consultation is required in accordance with the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010. 

In accordance with the legislation, we are seeking the views of all interested parties that would be affected by the permanent closure of ABC Nursery.

Please refer to the proposal document.




What happens next

Education Scotland will receive details of consultation responses and the public meeting and will provide Education Services with a report after the consultation.  

Education Services will then prepare a consultation report which will be published on the council's website.  All respondents to this consultation will be notified when it is available.

The consultation report will be submitted to Council and a decision made later in the year.
