Llancarfan Primary School in line for new state-of-the-art school building
Consultation is set to begin on proposals that would see Llancarfan Primary School move into a new state-of-the-art building as part of the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s 21st Century Schools programme.
This exciting proposal would involve a new 210-place primary school building located within the village of Rhoose, providing both an opportunity to cater for increases in local demand, as well as establishing a modern learning environment for existing pupils and staff at Llancarfan Primary School, an old Victorian school constrained on a small site.
Rhoose Primary School will be unaffected by the development.
Costing in excess of £4 million, half of which would come from a Welsh Government grant, the project is part of widespread investment in education in the Vale as part of Band B of Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools scheme.
Cllr Bob Penrose, Vale of Glamorgan Council Cabinet Member for Learning and Culture, said: “This project will see Llancarfan Primary School move into new ultra-modern facilities that can comfortably cater for the larger number of pupils due to attend.
“This is just part of extensive investment in education in the Vale that will see facilities dramatically improved across the entire County. “Work towards that aim has already begun and we will be announcing details of other schemes over the coming months.”
