Explanatory Note

(This Explanatory Note does not form part of the Notice but is offered by way of clarification)

1. Where a school has fewer than 10 registered pupils (or there are no pupils registered at a school) at the January school census point the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 permits the local authority to undertake streamlined procedures to bring about official closure. The local authority must issue a statutory notice but the requirement for general consultation is waived, provided sufficient equivalent school places have been identified which would be reasonably accessible to those actually or potentially displaced. No pupils were registered at Llansawel Primary School at the January school census point.

2. The intention of the Authority is to cease to maintain Llansawel Community Primary School from 13 April 2015, to make provision for those pupils living within the current catchment area of that school to attend either Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community Primary School, Cwmann, Lampeter SA48 8EP or Ysgol Llanybydder Community Primary School, Llanybydder, SA40 9RN, depending on which part of the catchment they are residing in. As from 13 April 2015, the catchment areas for Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community Primary School and Ysgol Llanybydder Community Primary School will be extended to incorporate separate areas from the current catchment area of Ysgol Llansawel Community Primary School.

3. The current catchment of Llansawel Community Primary School includes the former catchment of Ysgol Rhydcymerau Community Primary School following its closure on 31 August 2012 and re-designation of its catchment on 1 September 2012. The intention of the Authority is to include this part of Llansawel Community Primary School catchment with Ysgol Llanybydder Community Primary School and the remaining and majority of catchment area to be included with Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community Primary School.

4. Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community Primary School is a Welsh Medium Community Primary School which caters for pupils aged 4–11. The capacity of Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community Primary School is 158 and the Admission Number is 22.

5. Ysgol Llanybydder Community Primary School is a Welsh Medium Community Primary School which caters for pupils aged 4–11. The capacity of Ysgol Llanybydder Community Primary School is 100 and the Admission Number is 12.

6. Current school transport policy confirms that assistance with transport will be provided by the Authority for pupils who meet each of the following criteria: -
(a) are of compulsory school age;
(b) attend the nearest or the school designated by the Local Authority; and
(c) who reside over the statutory walking distance from the school of 2 miles.

Standards Committee – Appointment of Independent Member

The County Council is seeking to appoint a member of the public as an independent member of its Standards Committee.

The post receives an allowance of £99-198 per meeting (depending upon duration) plus certain expenses. All applications will be judged on merit. The Council welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
