Learning Resource Centre in the pipeline for Milford Haven School

A DEDICATED learning resource centre (LRC) for children with additional needs is in the pipeline for Milford Haven School.

Pupils with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and complex learning needs currently have access to a temporary LRC in Neyland.

A report to full council next week highlights potential 21st Century School funding to establish another LRC for Milford pupils.

It adds that a LRC provides classroom based provision within a mainstream school setting and those currently attending the Pembrokeshire Learning Base LRC in Neyland  “do not benefit from the full range of mainstream activities and lessons enjoyed by their peers elsewhere in the county.”

There is LRC provision at Ysgol Bro Gwaun and Ysgol Harri Tudor.

“This proposal seeks to obtain the approval of the County Council to establish a new LRC at Milford Haven School in order to support pupils with ASC and Complex Learning Needs and to address the gap in provision in the secondary phase.

“The LRC would be managed by Milford Haven School and would consist of specialist teachers and support staff who would provide expertise in meeting the specific needs of learners,” the report adds.

Pembrokeshire County Councillors meet on May 9 and will discuss the proposal before deciding if consultation on establishing a LRC should begin.
