Statement from Anglesey County Council.
Please find below a statement from Anglesey County Council as regards the schools modernisationin the Llangefni and Seiriol Areas:
IMPORTANT- SCHOOL MODERNISATION
Anglesey County Council officers will ask the Executive to rescind its previous decisions on the future of education provision in both Llangefni and Seiriol areas. The recommendation follows a recent internal review of the statutory consultation process highlighted concerns regarding compliance with the School Organisation Code (Welsh Government) 2013. If Executive members agree to rescind their previous decisions, any new statutory consultation process, relating to the Llangefni and Seiriol areas, would follow the requirements of the new School Organisation Code, published in November 2018. Anglesey's School Modernisation Programme began in 2012. The aim of the modernisation programme is to create the best possible educational environment for head teachers, teachers and children to succeed and thereby promote high standards. The process has been a very challenging one and has meant difficult decisions with regard to the rationalisation of schools in order to build new schools for future generations. So far, three new 21st century primary schools have been built and opened in Holyhead, Llanfaethlu and Newborough - an investment of £22m in Education on the Island. County Council officers have made Welsh Government and appropriate stakeholders aware of this intention. Executive members will consider the matter on Monday, May 20th 2019.
