Any responses made during this consultation period will not be counted as objections to the proposal, and instead will be counted as adverse comments. 

Objections to a proposal can only be registered after the publication of a statutory notice which is the second stage in the proposal.

The consultation will end at midnight, Tuesday 16 October 2018. 

The proposal

The proposal is to establish a generic 10-place Learning Resource Base (LRB) class for pupils aged between 4 years and 11 years with additional learning needs at Caerleon Lodge Hill Primary School, Roman Way, Caerleon, with effect from April 2019.

This will not have any effect on the current admission number for any year group, including the nursery class.

The LRB is additional provision available through the design of the new school building which is being provided by the council in conjunction with Welsh Government through Band A of the 21st Century Schools Programme.

The council is committed to providing LRB facilities in all new school builds to support a more inclusive approach for pupils with additional learning needs.

We would like to move to a position where there is a least one LRB class in each cluster of primary schools. There is currently no such provision within the Caerleon cluster or in the neighbouring St Julian’s cluster. 

This proposal will not have any detrimental impact on mainstream education provision at Caerleon Lodge Hill Primary School, and in fact it is considered that there will be long term benefits for both the school and the wider community.

What happens next? 

Following the end of the consultation we will prepare a report that summarises the consultation and engagement process, the comments received and the council's response to these comments.

The Leader of the council will consider the views expressed and decide whether to proceed with the proposal.

If the decision is taken to proceed, a statutory proposal will be published.

The statutory proposal period will last for 28 days following the date of publication and enables people to express their views in the form of supporting or objecting to the proposals.

If no objections are received following the publication of the statutory proposal, the Leader of the council will make the final decision as to whether to proceed.
