whether you are responding by email or by post, it’s now even easier to back the plan.
So that they can hear from the largest number of people possible Pembrokeshire County Council has agreed to accept responses in the form of a pre-written letter that we have prepared with space for you to add your own comments.
All you have to do is click on the link below, print it, fill in your details, sign it and send it. Or copy and paste the same wording in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline is May 5th. Here’s the letter in four handy formats!
After tremendous support at the final community meeting – thank you to all who attended – the plan is ready.
It provides a foundation on which excellent teaching can give our children the education they deserve. It started life in St Davids, but much of it applies to Haverfordwest and Fishguard too, and it’s worth looking at the idea of P6 as an independent, multi-site 6th form college that could work for all Pembrokeshire.
If you want to back the plan, now is the time to act.
The steering group for Schools for the Future is now working hard on a draft plan to put to the community. All through schools, flexible 6th forms, distance learning, community involvment and VA status are the elements we are working with. So what’s your view?
So here we are, solidly into the Public Consultation period on the Council’s plan for the future of our schools, and if you were there at St Davids City Hall on Monday March 23rd for the first of the Council’s public meetings, you will have heard that things have shifted a lot since January.
the Schools for the Future campaign is a group of volunteers working on behalf of the St Davids peninsula community to fight for the best possible education for children across Pembrokeshire.
Pembrokeshire County Council has dropped a plan to close our school, Ysgol Dewi Sant, but they still propose to remove it’s 6th form, and the 6th forms in Fishguard and Haverfordwest, and bus our kids a 30 mile round trip to a centralised 6th form college. We’re not convinced that’s the best solution and we know it would make our school unsustainably small.
So we’ve been researching the best rural schools across the UK, finding the facts about government policy and finance, and drawing up an ambitious but realistic proposal to give 21st Century education to the children of rural Pembrokeshire.
That plan is now ready. Please like us, share us, subscribe, and back the plan.
