Sark's government has been asked to spend thousands of pounds upgrading facilities at Sark School for children with special needs.

The school, which teaches pupils aged four to 15 needs £6,000 to train staff and build a soundproof room.

An annual cost of about £8,500 would also be needed per pupil with learning and behavioural difficulties, to provide them with one-to-one support.

The proposals will be debated by the Chief Pleas on 6 October.
