Members of the public are being asked for their views on the future of education in the Templeton area, as part of a review by Pembrokeshire County Council.
The Council would like to hear the public’s views on a preliminary consultation document, which sets out the case for change to education provision in the Templeton area and seeks views on a number of options for the future.
The options are:
• Retain status quo
• Extend the age range of the school (Templeton CP) to accept part-time three-year-olds
• Establish Federation with Narberth CP School
• Establish Federation with Tavernspite CP School
• Closure of Templeton CP School with pupils transferring to Narberth CP and/or Stepaside CP School
• Change of status of Narberth CP School to English-medium and Templeton School to Welsh-medium or vice-versa.
In addition to these options, members of the public can make their own suggestions.
The preliminary consultation document is available to view online, together with response forms at www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/haveyoursay
There is also a public meeting at Templeton CP School on Wednesday, 21st May at 6.30pm. A presentation will be made by Kate Evan-Hughes, Head of Education, which will be followed by a question and answer session.
