Consultation – Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd Y Grug, Learning Resource Base Proposal

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council has a statutory duty to secure sufficient and suitable school places in its area and to determine whether it is making best use of resources and facilities to deliver opportunities that all children deserve.

This consultation is an opportunity for you to learn about the school re-organisation proposal being put forward for Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd Y Grug and to tell you how to let us know your views. It is your chance to ask questions and provide comments that will be considered when the Council decides how to proceed.

The consultation document explains the Council’s proposal to establish a Welsh Medium Learning Resource Base (LRB) at Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd Y Grug by:

  • Undertaking a statutory consultation on establishing a generic 12-place Welsh Medium Learning Resource Base for pupils in Reception to Year 6 with additional learning needs at Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd Y Grug.

A LRB class provides a specialist place for pupils with Additional Learning Needs (ALN) within a mainstream school setting. There is currently no such LRB provision within the Welsh-medium primary schools, and the LAs WESP 2022-2032 states the aim to establish a WM LRB in a mainstream primary school in order to increase and improve the ALN provision within WM schools. This proposal will therefore benefit pupils living across the county borough wanting to access WM education but also requiring access to specialist mainstream provision that caters for their ALN.

The consultation process follows Welsh Government guidelines outlined in the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 and therefore, a range of individuals and groups are being asked for their views about these proposals.

Before any decisions are made the Council needs to ensure that it offers a number of opportunities for individuals and interested groups to make their views and opinions known on the proposal.

The Consultation period will run for a period of 6 weeks from 22nd April 2024 to 02nd June 2024.
