Denbighshire County Council
United Kingdom

Ysgol Llanbedr is an English Medium, Church School in a Safe Rural Setting.

Denbighshire County Council School review in the Ruthin area aims to:-

1. Ensure the sustainability of high quality education provision;
2. Improve the quality of school buildings and facilities;
3. Provide the right number of places, of the right type in the right location.

Ysgol Llanbedr Facts:

1. The quality of education at Ysgol Llanbedr is very high, with results always exceeding the Denbighshire and Wales average;
2. The school buildings and facilities are one of the best in the review;
3. Ysgol Llanbedr is a fast growing school attracting many new families in a fabulous location.

The flawed proposal has not taken into account the rapidly growing number of pupils registered to attend Ysgol Llanbedr in the coming years.

The proposal is to close Ysgol Llanbedr and transfer the pupils to Ysgol Borthyn (the other English medium Church in Wales school in the area) This proposal has not taken into account the growing number of pupils registered to attend Ysgol Llanbedr. The proposal is to sacrifice Ysgol Llanbedr, The Jewel in the Crown, to draw down funding for other Educational Projects in the County.

Ysgol Borthyn uses a mobile (portakabin) classroom and does not have off road parking for the safe transport of children to school. Ysgol Borthyn would also be at risk of closure in a couple of years should a new school be built in Ruthin. The majority of pupils who go to Ysgol Borthyn live very close to the likely site of this new school. The disruption of two school closures for primary school children should not be underestimated.

The Local Development Plan has 70 new houses proposed for Llanbedr. Once these houses have been built the demand from the village for the local village school will further increase.

We the undersigned call on Denbighshire County Council to STOP the Ysgol Llanbedr Consultation and look for a different way to Modernise Education in the Ruthin area.

Rydym ni sydd wedi llofnodi isod yn galw ar Gyngor Sir Ddinbych i DERFYNU’R ymgynghoriad ynghylch Ysgol Llanbedr a chwilio am ffordd arall o Foderneiddio Addysg yn ardal Rhuthun.
