    The other reason why there are less staff during holidays is that a number have historically only got a term time only contract.

    Interesting no one from the Labour Group has come in the thread to defend ‘their budget’- all this is shown us that there is no effective opposition to the current Executive Group.

    The figures about non-attendance are quite staggering — what would happen in the real world of business if there was that level of absentees is that a number of the ‘Councillor employees’ would be dismissed by now.

    All the non-attendees who are drawing down their wage should hang their heads in shame as this is a disgrace.

    The Leader and Deputy should bring this forward as an urgent item- by not doing anything they are complicit in the action of the non-attendees

    If it is about budget how does Maelor School in Penley consistently hit high targets surely they get the same level of funding per head as the other schools in Wrexham- what are they doing that can be bottled and delivered to the other schools.

    In any educational environment, there need to be a partnership between pupil, staff, school management, Council, and parents- if any one of these interdependent relationships breaks down then the result will inevitably be poor quality provision and poor results for children.

    In this instance it appears that more than one break down has occurred – it is easy to blame the environment yet if you look at inner city schools with children living in poor quality housing often in classes with a very high range of languages and culture they are still able to thrive. The work ethic for families is such that the children are actively encouraged to do better than their parents. The myth of immigrants always scrounging and being in benefits in many areas is very far from the truth.

    Many good teachers will inevitably leave from failing schools leaving those less experienced or those heading for retirement. I know this is a generalization but in situations like a failing school, there is a need for teachers to excel in their subject but also have the added skills to deal with the school set up. A good teacher in a good school does not necessarily make a good teacher in a failing school.

    Let’s hope the ‘powers that be’ pull their finger out and offer the right level of support and bring in the right type of teachers and managers to make a difference so that the Year 7 pupils that joined last September will be able to achieve when they get to GCSE in Year 11.

    I can’t believe it but I’m actually inclined to believe your thinking- you have of course forgotten that the customers of the cafes in Ty Pawb will be encouraged to buy a ‘layaway’ coffee to be given to one of the new human art forms that you have described.

    The beauty of human art form is that it can change shape on so many occasions – it could be propped up against the wall in a portrait pose or along the floor in landscape mode.

    You have also not mentioned that human art form can use all of your senses to get a full experience – visual, sound as humans make such variety grunts and groans depending on their given state, smell- this could change as the week goes by with the human odour wafting around the art forms.

    Thank you, Council for clearing the streets of Wrexham and creating a central hub to have the human underbelly of Wrexham on full display in one place– or will there be an additional cost of at least two security guards on patrol that has not been budgeted for ir recharged to the traders who have been encouraged to take up trading space amingst the human art forms..

    Votethecouncillorsout why have you never lived up to your name- what were you doing when the elections were on last year? You are mouthing off against the only real media we have in Wrexham- just because it does not always agree with your view is the norm for any media and people take their own view.

    You have only popped up on here since January – where were you before the elections last May? or have you changed your thread name? Not read any real alternatives to the things you are always knocking or us this your tactic — convince Wrexhamcom that they are no good– do you work for one of the new Wrexham websites and trying to get people to stop viewing Wrexham.com– It won’t work.
    I look forward to a real Post from you that gives a potential solution.
    And before you say it I have no connections with Wrexham.com management.

    Don’t forget that there were two other ‘senior’ officers from Wrexham Council who applied and were deemed unacceptable.

    Can one of the Council Member readers of these threads confirm that Lee Robinson Strategic Director has now been appointed as interim Chief Executive?
    If so does this mean Clair Field the other Strategic Director is now in the frame or is about to leave Wrexham as she had taken over the role as the interim after the last Chief Executive left?

    Are we moving towards an internal appointment!

    This does not seem right that residents are having cuts at a time when it looks like the Council staff are being protected. Does anyone know what the policy change was going to be that could have generated all the savings?
