Three local primary schools could have £2.8m spent on them if plans by Powys County Council are backed.

The council says the Welsh-medium school federation made up Carno, Glantwymyn and Llanbrynmair will get the cash for building improvement and other work if its plans are backed.

The council’s Cabinet has agreed to submit an application to the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme requesting support for improvements.
Operating since 2014, the federation has a single governing body, a single leadership team and a new Headteacher and accommodates 157 pupils across three sites.
The Cabinet was told that the conditions of buildings across the three sites were not adequate and that considerable investment was needed to bring them up to standard.
The £2.3m plans, which if successful will be 50 per cent funded by the Welsh Government, will see mobile classrooms at Carno replaced with a permanent building adjacent to the village community centre. The replacement building will receive £500,000 funding from the Carno Recreation Association.
Work at Ysgol Glantwymyn will include a new disabled toilet facility, new administrative space to improve safeguarding and improved car parking and drop-off area. Ysgol Llanbrynmair will get a canopy for outside learning and additional storage facilities.
