More thought to be given to nursery unit proposal

FURTHER consideration is to be given to school provision in the north Lurgan area following a proposal for an additional nursery unit at Lurgan Model.

Since the development proposal was made the SELB has received five letters of concern from neighbouring schools and pre-school providers.

At the SELB meeting on February 8 attention was drawn to the geographical positioning of the statutory and non-statutory provisions in the area in light of the proposal to establish an additional nursery unit at Lurgan Model.

Previous consideration given by Pre-School Education Advisory Group (PEAG) to pre-school provision in the Lurgan area was also highlighted.

It was agreed to refer the proposal to PEAG to enable further consideration to be given to the overall provision in the area.
