Federation Proposal

Dear stakeholder,

A formal consultation has been launched by the governing bodies of Gaer Primary School and Maesglas Primary School, together with Newport City Council on a proposal to federate the two schools and establish ‘The Gaer and Maesglas Primary School Partnership’ from January 2022. The federation is a formal and legal agreement by which the schools involved work together in formal partnership with shared governance under a single governing body. The existing governing bodies will be dissolved and replaced by a new, single governing body with strategic oversight of both schools.

The consultation period will commence on 21 June 2021 and end at midnight on 1 August 2021. This process is an opportunity for people to learn about the proposal, ask questions and make comments that will be recorded and summarised in a consultation report.

The consultation pack is published and available on the following websites: Gaer Primary School Maesglas Primary School Newport City Council

Hard copies of the consultation documents are available for inspection at both primary schools, and are available on request by emailing school.reorg@newport.gov.uk or by telephoning 01633 656656.

Feedback can be submitted here.
