Consultation Event for Cwmbran Secondary School Proposals

Since the commencement of the 21st Century Schools Programme, Torfaen County Borough Council has been considering various school reorganisation proposals including the reduction of surplus secondary school places in the south of the county borough.

Torfaen's Cabinet has now agreed to commence consultation on the removal of surplus secondary school places in the south of the county borough through:

  • The closure of Fairwater High School with effect from September 2015
  • The closure of Llantarnam School with effect from September 2015
  • The formation of a new school on the Fairwater High School site from September 2015
  • A review of the catchment areas for Llantarnam, Fairwater and Croesyceiliog for September 2015

It is important to note that before moving forward with the proposals, the local authority wish to seek the views of all those with an interest in the proposals so that their views can be taken into account before decisions are made. The consultation period will run from 17th February until 31st March 2014.

A consultation event will be held at Croesyceiliog School for parents / carers of pupils attending Cwmbran primary and secondary schools and all other interested parties on Tuesday 11th March from 6pm - 8pm.

Music Tuition – Changes and Procedures

The process for the payment of Music Tuition has changed. Parents need to sign an agreement form before commencement of an instrument. This is the agreement between parents and the school, accepting the costs for the tuition. The current charge is £50 per term per instrument.

This information is sent to the Local Authority where an invoice is produced and posted to parents. Payment can be made over the phone or at the Civic Centre, payments can also be made at the cash offices. This is a much safer system and parents have the ease of paying over the phone out of hours.

Please do not send cash in to school.

School Trips

The process of school trips has also changed. Pupils will be given the opportunity to attend some fantastic trips during the year,  spaces are in great demand.

We are currently using the Torfaen Invoice system in the same way as the Music tuition. An agreement form will need to be completed by parents, this is the agreement that parents will pay the full cost of the trip.
Once a form has been submitted an invoice is produced and posted, changes cannot be made except in exceptional circumstances which will be agreed by the Head Teacher.

Pupils who change their mind or identify that close friends are not attending  a trip, is not an exceptional circumstance. Please ensure that you child can attend the trip before returning the consent form.

Thank you for your continued support.
