Cardiff Council


Earlier this year we wrote to you outlining a proposal to respond to the demand for Welsh-medium primary school places in these areas of Cardiff. A public consultation took place in the spring and asked for your views about expanding Pwll Coch from two forms of entry to three forms of entry, allowing the temporary arrangement of up to 90 children admitted at reception age, to be made permanent.


We received 169 responses to this proposal through letters, e-mails, public meetings and drop in sessions.


The views expressed have been carefully considered and a report will go to the Cabinet Meeting on Monday 22 July which will recommend a public consultation, to begin in September 2013, on a proposal to make permanent the temporary enlargement of Ysgol Cymraeg Pwll Coch, to admit up to 90 pupils into the reception year at the school from September 2014, but this time to include a multi million pound investment to provide permanent new build accommodation at the school.


The proposals are for a phased expansion of the school to provide permanent accommodation which will allow admissions for up to 90 pupils in the reception year from 2014, with a view to the expansion being completed by September 2015.


The report will be available on the Meeting Calendar at this week.


Please be assured that we will keep you up to date with the Cabinet's decision on the recommendation to hold a public consultation and that the Council will continue to support staff and Governors at the school to make sure that the education and well-being of children remains a priority.
