Dunlop Primary and Early Childhood Centre

A sum of £3.700m will be invested in Dunlop Primary School and Early Childhood Centre.

Early years

In light of the recent Scottish Government statement in relation to the expansion of early years’ provision, all projects within the Capital programme involving Early Childhood Centres will be reconsidered to ensure that any planned scope of works can deliver the increased hours. 

Dunlop Early Childhood Centre site investigations are ongoing and once concluded a decision will be made on the location of the provision.

Latest news

  • As noted for the Early Childhood Centre, once a location has been determined, a final brief for the school will be developed.
