MLA Maurice Bradley has congratulated Millburn Primary School who has been awarded funding for a Nurture Unit.
The unit will focus on children with particular social, emotional and behavioral difficulties which are creating a barrier to learning within a mainstream class.
Welcoming the funding, announced by DUP Education Minister this morning Peter Weir, Bradley, a member of the Assembly’s Education Committee said: “This is good news for the school. The funding will provide money for the nurture unit, one full-time teacher and a full-time nurture classroom assistant.
“I would like to congratulate, Minister Peter Weir and his team, who are working hard to increase this type of provision in our schools in Northern Ireland.
“We are very lucky to have such dedicated teachers looking after our children here in Coleraine and across the East Londonderry constituency.”
