Placement in mainstream schools

Most children and young people with additional support needs are supported in their local mainstream school, however for a small number of children a specialist provision is more appropriate.

There are various special education establishments and provisions available:

Autism facilities: provisions for children with autism

Support can be provided within the classroom or in a teaching base, depending on the individual needs of the children.

Enhanced Support for Learning:  

  • All secondary schools have provision for children who require additional support.
  • Ochil House, based at Wallace High School, has provision for secondary aged children who have severe and complex additional needs, require significant support for their learning and a high level of co-ordination from other agencies.
  • Castleview School is for children who have severe and complex needs and who require significant support for their learning and a high level of co-ordination from other agencies.

Social, Emotional and Behaviour Needs 

The Social, Emotional and Behaviour Needs Support Service (SEBN) supports children and  young people with social, emotional and behavioural support needs across all schools. This can be within the child's own school or at the primary or secondary support bases.

Additional Support Needs
