Still time to have your say on plans for new Welsh-medium primary school

There’s still time to have your say on plans to create a new Welsh-medium primary school in Wrexham.

Proposals for the new school were put forward by Wrexham Council in September 2017 in a bid to help meet the growing demand for Welsh-medium education in the area.

The primary school would have capacity for 210 pupils and would be based at the old Hafod Y Wern school in Caia Park, initially accommodating 15 places for nursery and 15 places for reception classes from September 2019.

Eventually the school would move to the site of Borras infant school – which will be vacant once the amalgamation of pupils into the junior school building is complete.

A public consultation on the proposals took place between 26th September and 7th November – with the results due to be presented before executive board members in December 2017.

However Wrexham Council have confirmed that the consultation has been extended to 30th January 2018 to allow for further engagement with consultees.

The results of the consultation and whether plans for the new Welsh-medium school will go ahead, will be discussed by executive board members in April 2018.
