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 a request from the governing body of Milford Haven School to consult on the removal of the sixth form from the school. The report referred to a letter that had been received from the chair of the governing body of the school which outlined a number of factors that had led to its decision. The decision of Council was as follows:
That the Director for Children and Schools be authorised to undertake statutory consultation on the proposal to make a regulated alteration to Milford Haven School in order to remove its sixth form provision.
Such a proposal constitutes a regulated alteration within the context of the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013. Consequently, this document fulfils part of the County Council’s responsibility under the Act to consult with appropriate stakeholders and to explain the Council’s proposal to remove sixth form provision from Milford Haven School. 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.
Please note that Page 39 of the Consultation Document published on 5th February contained an error in relation to the Estyn judgements of the former Milford Haven Junior School. This has now been corrected. Please accept our apologies for this error.
