Additional information

Nursery Places

The number of nursery places currently available at the school subject to the proposals are as set out below:

Coed Glas Primary School: 48 Full Time Equivalent places
Ton yr Ywen  Primary School: 40 Full Time Equivalent places
Ysgol y Wern: 36 Full Time Equivalent places



The provision of additional primary schools places in and around the Llanishen  area is included within the Council’s Band A 21st Century schools funding bid.  The 21st Century Schools Band A submission has been approved in principle by the Welsh Government (subject to the successful Business Case).

The combined funding included within the bid is for £4.493m.

School budgets are primarily funded by formula funding mechanism which uses as its main driver pupil numbers.  Any increase in pupil numbers as individual schools will need to be reflected in the revenue budget of the school.

Impact of the proposal on the Welsh Language


It is not anticipated that there will be any negative impact on the Welsh Language as a result of these proposals. 


The schools subject to the proposals are existing schools which offer a range of after school activities and some may have community organisations offering services from the school facilities.  It is not anticipated that there would be a negative impact on any of these activities.


For details of any such activities please contact the schools directly.
