To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has to introduce Key Stage 1 SEN units on site in mainstream primary schools in the Ards Peninsula. [110397]

The South-Eastern Education and Library Board continually monitors the demand for places at all its special units. At present the Board advises that there are insufficient numbers of pupils in Key Stage 1 with a statement of special educational needs for moderate learning difficulties living in the Ards peninsula to warrant the opening of a new special unit.The Board will, however, continue to monitor the demand for such a unit.
