Proposal to establish Ysgol Gyfun Gwent Is Coed

 

Options Considered/Reasons for Decision

 

 

The Cabinet was informed about the outcome of the statutory consultation process on the school reorganisation proposal to establish a new Welsh-medium secondary school in Newport, now named as Ysgol Gyfun Gwent Is Coed, at the temporary location of Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Teyrnon:

 

Cabinet was informed that the full statutory consultation process concluded at midnight on the 23rd May 2016. Members were informed that no objections had been received relating to the proposal.

 

Members were provided with details of the Consultation Report and the “Learner’s Voice Survey Report” and noted the findings of the Formal Consultation stage where there was overall support by consultees – detailed within the “Consultation Report”

 

The Cabinet was also provided with the “Fairness & Equality Impact Assessment

 

Members were informed that the proposal was to establish Ysgol Gyfun Gwent Is Coed in Newport at the temporary location of Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Teyrnon with subsequent transfer to the original site of Duffryn Way, Newport

 

The Report to Cabinet set out the 21st Century Schools case and the regional planning of school places case

It was confirmed that the decision taken today would need to take account of the need for staff to give adequate notice to their existing employers.

 

The Leader and Cabinet Members thanked all members of staff involved in developing the case for the permanent arrangements for the Welsh Medium Secondary School , culminating in the recent decision of the Council to grant planning permission for its development and also mentioned the professional approach of the Council’ Planning Officers in their presentation to the Council.

 


 

 

Decisions:
