Personal and social education, project work and outdoor education will feature. The Rosyth centre, attended by 25 children aged 12-16, matches one in Glenrothes and completes a restructuring of Fife's behaviour support service. All 19 secondaries havesupport bases backed by five off-campus centres and the two day centres. Derek Bruce, the council's behaviour support manager, said 12 "floating" assistants and six teachers were on hand to provide extra help when young people were at risk of dropping out of school.
