Modernising Education Programme
Local authorities have a responsibility to periodically review school provision. Denbighshire like every other local authority in Wales is currently reviewing schools as part of our commitment to modernising education and ensuring our schools provide the best possible learning environments and facilities in line with the Welsh Assembly’s 21st Century Schools Programme.
The educational performance of pupils in Denbighshire has continued to improve in recent years. However, there remains room to improve and provide the best possible education provision for pupils so they can fulfil their potential.
The school environment can affect pupil attendance and performance, and many schools in Denbighshire are in need of improvement and modernisation. The Council is committed to delivering significant improvements to our schools and school facilities so that we can transform the learning environment to support education.
To deliver on this commitment, it is necessary to review school provision to:-
- Ensure the sustainability of high quality education provision
- Improve the quality of school buildings and facilities
- Provide the right number of places, of the right type in the right location
In order to achieve this we have embarked on a series of area reviews. School provision in Denbighshire is reviewed on an area basis to ensure that changes to school organisation are made holistically taking into account any potential impact on other schools nearby.
