Councillors discuss school provisions

school provisionsAT the County Council Cabinet meeting on Monday, councillors received a report from the cabinet member of education on three items.

Firstly, Councillor Ken Rowlands delivered his report to the members saying:

“We now have an entirely new senior management team. The team has made many changes and improvements.

“This progress, and the pace of change, has been acknowledged and validated by Wales Audit, Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales and more recently Estyn”.

In his conclusion he said: “I am confident that we are maintaining improvements in processes and practice and are bringing about the required cultural change”

The next item on the agenda was a proposal for a review of secondary education provision in the Haverfordwest area.

It was recommended that this provision be reviewed with a report being presented to Cabinet in spring 2014 which outlines options and recommendations.

Councillor Rowlands added: “The impending review is very important”.Item nine on the agenda was for another review of educational provision, this time in the Templeton area.

It was recommended that the director for Children and Schools undertakes preliminary consultation on the review of educational provision in the Templeton CP School area.

This was based on a number of options set out in the agenda. Some of these options included, maintaining the status quo, establish a federation with Narberth or Tavernspite CP Schools and the closure of Templeton CP School with pupils being transferred to other schools.
