Stepps Primary School and Nursery
NLC UPDATE NOVEMBER 2023
DAYTIME ACCESS TO COMMUNITY SPACES
Some more positive news for reinstating daytime community access to Stepps Primary School, the internal works to secure toilet access to the main hall will start on Saturday 18th November. These works to secure and upgrade these toilets will continue until the 3rd December.
We have attached a drawing showing the access route for the operatives and the internal doors that will remain locked to secure the school bubble.
There will be no operational impact upon school or the lets during this time.
We will continue to update all the groups as we are informed of the works taking place.

The Hayward Review
The Scottish Government is reviewing Scottish qualifications and how young people are assessed (https://www.gov.scot/publications/independent-review-of-qualifications-and-assessment-terms-of-reference/).
The views and experiences of parents are being sought by the Scottish Government and two national parent organisations are looking to work directly with parents to seek their views (Connect (https://connect.scot) and National Parent Forum Scotland - https://www.npfs.org.uk ).
January 2021 Update
The community council is fully committed in its support regarding the two matters Stepps Primary School is currently facing , namely, major remedial drainage works and an ongoing overcapacity issue.
The remedial drainage works are to address the drainage issues beneath the school building and it appears an option has been agreed between the North Lanarkshire Council (NLC) and Transform Schools North Lanarkshire (TSNL).
The Greek Theatre has been demolished and preparatory works carried out for the installation of modular units to provide additional teaching space. In addition, new parking restrictions are in operation. At this stage the strategy remains to relocate the library and community facilities to premises at 7 Buchanan Gate. No further update on this at present.
The overcapacity issue was raised in 2018. Since then the community council has made many representations to NLC on this issue. To date NLC has been intransigent in providing a response.
