Closure of Crimond and Kellands Dyslexia Units

At its meeting of the Education, Learning and Leisure Committee on Thursday 27 August 2015, Aberdeenshire Council made the decision to close the dyslexia units at Crimond and Kellands Schools. The decision was made following consultation under the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010 as amended. Aberdeenshire Council has notified the Scottish Government of their decision, and anyone wishing to appeal this decision has until Wednesday 16 September 2015 to contact Scottish Ministers. Representations to Scottish Ministers can be made by email to: schoolclosure@scotland.gsi.gov.uk or post to: The Scottish Government, School Infrastructure Unit, 2A (South), Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6QQ.

Armed Forces Families

To all Parents & Carers of children and young people of Armed Forces families.

Children and young people of Armed Forces families often experience numerous changes in their lives which means that they may need additional support – albeit for a short time – to help them cope with the effects of these changes. It is important that the school is fully informed of any impending changes such as a move, deployment or service duty as soon as possible to enable them to put systems in place to support our children and young people.

The leaflet below, ‘Help Us to Support Your Children in Our Schools’ has been created for the parents/carers of children and young people of Armed Forces families to encourage them to identify their military service status (Regular, Reserve and Veteran). It was prepared in co-operation with the ADES Armed Forces Working Group of Education Officers, Headteachers, Project Co-ordinators and partners.
