Introduction to the proposal

On the 7th March, the Council’s Cabinet authorised the Director of Learning & Skills to undertake a consultation from 10 April to 22 May 2024 on  proposal to  establish a Welsh Medium Specialist Resource Base at Ysgol Gwaun y Nant by September 2024.


The proposal would create specialist Welsh medium educational provision for pupils aged 4-11 years. The purpose of this specialist resource would be to support individual learners as well as improve the capacity of the home school to create a fully inclusive environment where all learners are given the opportunity to succeed and have access to an education that meets their needs. 


The SRB would provide periods of integrated provision for pupils with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition and those experiencing significant social communication, interaction, or regulation difficulties. This will include pupils whose high level of anxiety is impacting significantly on their ability to access mainstream education.


No capital funding is required to ensure that the identified accommodation is suitable as capital works have been completed following the identification of the space for future use for ALN provision as part of the Welsh Government Capital Grant for Additional Learning Needs. The implementation of the proposal does not require further amendments to the Ysgol Gwaun Y Nant school building.
