Cwm Glas Infants School - Update
A spokesperson for CCBC said: “Caerphilly County Borough Council is aware that Cwm Glas Infants School has issued a letter today (Friday 30th June) to the parents/guardians of pupils attending the school, outlining that the Governing Body have concerns about the viability of the school.
The Governing Body has also taken the decision to inform CCBC that they no longer believe the school is viable due to financial pressures and low forecasted attendance figures.
The Local Authority will now proceed with a full consultation as prescribed by Welsh Government’s School Organisation Code, with proposals to close the school at the end of the next academic year (July 2024).
It is important to emphasise that staff and the Governing Body are committed to continuing to give pupils the best possible start to their education.
Parents and guardians have been advised to contact the school directly to discuss any queries and staff will be on hand in the coming weeks to answer them.”
