Residents in Newtown are being urged to have their say on plans for developing the local school structure.

A drop-in session is to be held in Newtown to allow people to view and comment on Powys County Council’s draft policy on developing the school infrastructure “Plans for Powys Schools – Vision 2025”.
 
A draft has been published online at www.powys.gov.uk/en/corporate/find-out-about-consultations-in-powys/developing-the-powys-schools-infrastructure/ and the council is welcoming feedback on this strategic document.
 
Drop-in sessions are also being held in January for those people who don’t have internet access or who have questions for the council’s education officers.
 
Councillor Myfanwy Alexander, Cabinet member with responsibility for Schools commented: “This new policy represents a radical change in the council’s approach to developing the schools’ system required to meet the challenges ahead,” said Cllr. Alexander.
 
“We wish to work with schools and communities to develop a positive and innovative network of schools, based on a commitment to collaborative learning and developing partnerships with schools, families, communities and businesses, all working together to create a system that is accessible, integrated and responsive,” said Cllr. Alexander.
 
“We welcome your ideas in developing the ideas within this consultation document, so that we can work together to support education across our diverse communities,” she added.
 
The drop-in session will take place on Tuesday, 16th January 2018 at Newtown Library between 3pm and 6.30pm.
 
The online survey is open until January 30th, 2018. Should people prefer, they can respond by letter to the School Transformation Team at County Hall, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD1 5LG or by emailing school.consultation@powys.gov.uk.
