Sign Petition

Save our Community Schools (Eagleswell & Llanilltud Fawr)

449 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We are trying to gauge the reaction of parents from both schools and members of the wider community with regards the proposal to amalgamate Eagleswell Primary School with LLanilltud Fawr on the same site as LLantwit Major Comprehensive and Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant. The sale of the land on which Eagleswell School sits will fund the project. The rumour is that this land is to be sold for more housing and a convenience store. These proposals will impact on the lives of many. We are in no doubt that a brand new school will do wonders for staff and pupil morale however, as with everything, there are pros and cons, losing the small school ethos for one and traffic congestion. We feel that as parents and members of the local community, we should have a choice in the type of school our children attend. Please sign this petition if you are against the closure of Eagleswell School to fund the amalgamation of two schools on an already pupil saturated site

Highlights

March 21
Handover of the petition to take place Monday 24th March at 5pm, council offices, Barry. All support welcome! Thank you everybody who has signed, it shows that we are not alone, it should have been a community consultation, lets hope that the council realise this and will start to listen to us!
February 12
17th February last day for any objections. If you have anything to say about the proposed ammalgamation, please do so at http://webapp.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/survey/llantwit-learning/llantwit_learning_community.htm
February 6
10 day countdown starts tomorrow before objections have to be with the council. Things to think about:- The financial proposal does not add up, unless Eagleswell is sitting on a gold mine! There could still be a huge shortfall, has anyone asked where that will come from? Floodlights glaring till late from 3G pitch! Congestion 5 days a week!
January 30
Well the town council meeting didn't quite go as planned. We did garner sympathy and support, but the money did the talking and the vote was 10 against 3 for the proposal. We were, however told to fight, we have the power and only we can change it! So get signing!!
January 28
Community meeting tonight went well, thank you to all who attended. We have some points to move forward with now and some more people to join our action group and plan a forward strategy. Thank you everybody and keep those signatures coming!
January 24
We have got 181 signatures in just a few days. It highlights how disappointed people of Llantwit Major are to be faced with the closure of one of our primary schools to fund the building of a community school for children aged 3 - 19 years old. Will this be the nurturing environment you would wish for your young children? How will the roads cope with the additional traffic chaos that is inevitable on the planned site? And how will the community be affected? Please come to come to Eagleswell School at 1pm Saturday 25th January and be there when Alan Cairns, MP is there to support us publicly

    Destruction of a community school and a green space. Labour (the workers' party!!!) and their Llantwit Major First mates seem quite happy to do this in one of the less wtwell-off areas of the town. Yet council tax in Llantwit is higher than Coutwbridge and all the leafy villages out in the Vale...... )

    My children had an excellent education at the school. Smaller primary schools are less intimidating and better of a child's education. 'Super schools' are not the answer. Good luck with the campaign
