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.
Hard copies of the consultation documents are available for inspection at both primary schools, and are available on request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01633 656656.
