A learning and growing Denbighshire


What we want

Support the provision of quality learning and training, including Welsh language skills development, that enables people of all ages to fulfil their potential, both personally and professionally, also addressing inequality and educational deprivation.

What we aim to do:

  1. Promote the learning and development of our children and young people by:
    • Supporting early years child development.
    • Working with schools and GwE, our school improvement partner, to support high standards of education provision that removes barriers to learning and leads to good attainment.
    • Supporting Schools to deliver against new standards, such as the Welsh in Education Strategic Plan, the new curriculum for Wales, and the Additional Learning Needs code.*
  2. Provide high quality buildings and facilities that meet the needs of pupils, families, and the wider community, including working with the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Communities for Learning Programme.
  3. Work with partners (including colleges and universities) to ensure that people of all ages, including those who are vulnerable or in our care, are resilient and prepared for employment, further education, or training, supported by:
    • The right opportunities for work.
    • Access to quality volunteering, work experience and apprenticeship opportunities.*
    • Personal and professional learning (e.g. life skills or ‘green skills’).
  4. Improving the well-being of children from low income and disadvantaged families. This includes expanding the free school meals offer to all primary school pupils, and working to reduce the attainment gap of children and young people through Equity in Education and the Price of Pupil Poverty project.*
