West Dunbartonshire Educational Services Committee considered at a meeting on Wednesday 21 December 2016 proposals to bring the management of both St Eunan’s and Gartocharn Early Learning & Childcare Centres (ELCC) under the leadership of the headteacher of St Eunan’s and Gartocharn Primary Schools respectively.  The committee reviewed the proposal, summary of public consultation and response from Education Scotland before approving the proposals.  The committee were advised that they should consider this decision as relevant to the following point of the Statutory Guidance.

  • A standalone nursery is to be incorporated into a local school as a nursery class. This would be considered as the closure of the nursery school and the establishment of a new stage of education, a nursery class, at the school.

In line with section 15(2) of the Schools Consultation (Scotland) Act 2010 West Dunbartonshire Council has forwarded the proposal paper and consultation report to the Scottish Ministers.  If any interested party wishes to make a representation to Scottish Ministers on this proposal and decision they can do so by contacting the relevant team by email at  schoolclosure@scotland.gsi.gov.ukor by post at The Scottish Government, School Infrastructure Unit, 2A (South), Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6QQ.

The deadline for making representations on this matter is three weeks from the decision date.  Therefore the deadline for representations on the decisions related to the management and leadership of both St Eunan’s and Gartocharn ELCCs is midnight on Tuesday 10th January 2017.
