Proposed Relocation of Clackmannanshire Secondary and Primary Support Services

Closed 1 Apr 2022

Opened 1 Feb 2022

Overview

Clackmannanshire Secondary Support Service was previously housed in a Category 'C' listed building from 1875 in Bedford Place, Alloa, which lies within a conservation area.

The Bedford Place school building was closed in July 2020, further to an inspection report, and is now a vacant school building, which remains closed due to structural failure of the roof and wall masonry.

On Health and Safety grounds, all young people and staff were relocated to The Orchard, Tullibody, the former St Bernadette’s Primary School, where Clackmannanshire Secondary Support Service has been located since the closure of the Bedford Place building in July 2020.

Prior to July 2020, Primary Support Service was located in an annexe next to Park Primary school.  

Given that both Primary and Secondary Support Services are managed by a single Headteacher and there is sufficient space in The Orchard to bring the service into one building, a temporary relocation was undertaken at that time.

Why your views matter

We are consulting on the proposed permanent relocation of the Clackmannanshire Secondary and Primary Support Services to The Orchard, Tullibody. 

The feedback obtained from this consultation will inform the Council’s decision on this matter.

The consultation is very short and should only take around 5 minutes to complete.

 

 

 

What happens next

Education Scotland will receive details of both the consultation responses and public meeting and they will then provide Clackmannanshire Education Services with a report.

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

The consultation report will be discussed by Elected Members in June 2022, where they will decide on the matter.
