Proposed Relocation of the North Ayr Extended Learning Facility


Proposed Relocation of the North Ayr Extended Learning Facility from Dalmilling Primary School to Heathfield Primary School

Consultation Open Monday 04 September 2023 - Closes Wednesday 25 October 2023

South Ayrshire Council is consulting on a proposed relocation of the additional support needs education provision, within the North Ayr Extended Learning Facility at Dalmilling Primary School (Harthall, Ayr, KA8 0PD), to a new and larger facility within Heathfield Primary School (Heathfield Rd, Ayr KA8 9DR).

The requirement to consider a proposed relocation of the North Ayr Extended Learning Facility, currently situated within Dalmilling Primary School, has been prompted by capacity pressures at the school in recent years and the projected impact of young people arising from the new housing development on the site of the former Mainholm Academy in Ayr, which is located within the catchment area of the school.

In terms of the above Act, the Council wish to seek views on the proposal from all interested parties including parents and carers of young people attending Dalmilling Primary School and Heathfield Primary School, along with parents and carers of any young person who would be expected to attend any of these schools within the next two years.

Full details of the proposal will be made available online from Monday 04 September 2023.

A copy of the proposal document is attached with this communication, and will be made available from the following establishments:

  • Dalmilling Primary School, Harthall, Ayr, KA8 0PD;
  • Heathfield Primary School, Heathfield Rd, Ayr KA8 9DR;
  • Ayr Academy, University Avenue, Ayr KA8 0SZ;
  • South Ayrshire Information & Advice Hub, 1 Mainholm Rd, Ayr KA7 0QF; and
  • County Buildings Reception, Wellington Square, Ayr KA7 1DR.

Interested parties are invited to respond online, or make written representations on the proposal to the Director of Education at the above address, or through our online form, no later than Wednesday 25 October 2023;

Submit your response

A public meeting has been arranged as follows for parents, carers and other stakeholders to discuss the proposal in detail:
