Cwm Glas Infants School

Pant Glas, Llanbradach, Caerphilly, CF83 3PD

Cwm Glas


Due to the falling rolls at Cwm Glas Infant school which are projected to decrease further, a meeting was arranged by the Head Teacher and the Governing body with Local Authority representatives including the Chief Education Officer, to discuss the future viability of the school.  The conclusion of the meeting, agreed the school could no longer maintain a balanced budget and an appropriate staffing level, therefore a decision was made by the Head Teacher and Governing Body of the School to pursue closure of Cwm Glas Infant School with effect from July 2024.

Currently the pupils at Cwm Glas Infants School transition to Coed Y Brain Primary School at Key Stage 2. The proposal seeks to transition the pupils at Foundation Phase, to deliver an inclusive all-through primary school provision from September 2024. This will result in the closure of Cwm Glas Infants School.

Consultation Stage: Complete
Anticipated Completion Date: September 2024
