A new additional support centre for pupils with profound and complex needs in the Borders has been approved.

The site in Earlston will replace current provision at primaries in Hawick and Innerleithen.

Councillor Sandy Aitchison said it would provide a "high quality learning environment" for its pupils.

A preferred option for the name of the new facility has now also emerged. Councillors selected Leader Valley School from a shortlist of three.
