Llantwit Learning Community Consultation

Consultation on a proposal to create a New 420 place Primary School as part of the Llantwit Learning Community by amalgamating Eagleswell and Llanilltud Fawr Primary Schools

 

 

The Council proposes to establish the Llantwit Learning Community to transform educational opportunities in Llantwit Major. The Llantwit Learning Community will be located on the current Llantwit Major Comprehensive, Llanilltud Fawr Primary and Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant sites.

 

The Llantwit Learning Community will comprise a remodelled Llantwit Major Comprehensive School, a new 420 place primary school formed from the amalgamation of Eagleswell and Llanilltud Fawr primary schools and expansion of Ysgol Dewi Sant to a 210 place school. The three schools would be co-located on the same site but retain their separate identities and would benefit from shared facilities.

  

The proposal will meet the aims of the Welsh Governments 21st Century schools programme to create:

  • Learning environments for children and young people aged from 3-19 that will enable the successful   implementation of strategies for school improvement and better educational outcomes;
  • A sustainable education system through better use of resources to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness; and
  • A 21st century schools standard for all schools which also reduces the recurrent costs, energy consumption and carbon emissions.

The consultation explains the Councils proposal to create a new 420 place primary school as part of the Llantwit Learning Community by amalgamating Eagleswell and Llanilltud Fawr Primary schools. The Llantwit Learning Community will meet the aims of the Welsh Governments 21st Century Schools Programme to enable the schools and community to access a wide range of new facilities.

  

This consultation will run from the 16 December 2013 to 10 February 2014.  Please note that the deadline for consultation responses has been extended to Monday 17th February 2014.

 

 

THE CONSULTATION HAS NOW ENDED. THE RESPONSES TO THIS CONSULTATION ARE CURRENTLY BEING ANALYSED.
