Pembrokeshire County Council has a statutory duty to secure sufficient and suitable school places in its area and to determine whether it is making the best use of the resources and facilities to deliver the opportunities that children deserve.
At its meeting on 10th October 2019, Pembrokeshire County Council considered a report which outlined the findings of a review and preliminary engagement undertaken on Ysgol y Preseli and its feeder schools. The report considered a wide variety of matters arising as a result of the preliminary engagement and concluded with a recommendation to establish a new 3-19 entity instead of the separate primary and secondary provision provided by Ysgol y Frenni and Ysgol y Preseli. The decision of Council was as follows:
That the Director for Children and Schools be authorised to undertake statutory consultation on the proposal to discontinue Ysgol y Preseli and Ysgol y Frenni, and to establish a new 3 - 19 Welsh-medium school using both current school sites.
This document fulfils part of the County Council’s responsibility under the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 to consult with appropriate stakeholders and to explain the Council’s proposal to introduce 3-19 provision in Crymych. This document offers an opportunity for consultees to put forward any comments, observations or alternative proposals they wish to be considered, as well as explaining why other options considered are not the preferred option.
