Welcome to Carrongrange High School
Exciting news from Carrongrange! Starting on the 19.02.18 we will be launching our new Health and Wellbeing drop-in sessions ‘Here to Hear’ on a Monday lunchtime. This is a service available to all of our senior pupils* and a selected few S1 to S3 pupils who can be referred by their class or principal teacher. It is a safe, confidential and inclusive environment for the young people to come and have a chance to discuss any questions or concerns, from bullying to sexual health & relationships. They will be able to access advice and support as well as having someone to listen to them.
The sessions will be run by Mrs O’Grady, our Health and Wellbeing facilitator and John Wells our family support worker. All of these drop-in sessions will be optional and confidential (unless there is a child protection concern, and in which case we are obligated to pass this on). We are working alongside health professionals and agencies such as the NHS, Central Sexual Health and LGBT Youth to ensure our pupils feel valued, respected and included and give them the knowledge and support to ‘Be all they can Be!’
If you have any concerns about your son/daughter accessing this service or would like more information, then please contact us on 01324 492592.
If we have not heard from you by Friday the 9th February, we will assume your consent, for your son/daughter to attend this service as and when they wish.
Mrs L O’Grady
Our New High School (Aug 2017)
Construction work on a brand new secondary school for young people with additional support needs in Falkirk started in July 2016.
The Education Executive at Falkirk Council has approved the final proposals for the new £17.5 million Carrongrange School, which will accommodate 190 pupils.
The project is being led by hub East Central Scotland in partnership with Falkirk Council, Scottish Futures Trust and Ogilvie Construction and is due for completion in August 2017.
Gary Bushnell, Chief Executive, hub East Central Scotland, said: “Our team has worked closely with Falkirk Council to progress these plans and we look forward to delivering a high quality learning environment that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of pupils and staff.”
Robert Naylor, Director of Children’s Services, Falkirk Council, said: "The new school will provide pupils with a welcoming and flexible learning environment across two floors and will include modern specialist classroom equipment and facilities to meet the needs of pupils.”
Here are a few pictures of how the school is coming on.
