Keep Ysgol Gynradd Beaumaris open

This petition had 601 supporters

Anglesey County Council is currently holding a statutory consultation on primary education provision in the Seiriol area of the island, with the proposal to close Beaumaris Primary School. There are widespread concerns in the community that this is unnecessary, cost-ineffective and would have a devastating impact on our community.

The Council has ignored the views of over 700 respondents to its non-statutory consultation, who voiced their opposition to closing Ysgol Gynradd Beaumaris and making our rural town the first town in Wales without a primary school. As a result, our children's festive period is marred by worries about what will happen to their school.

The Welsh Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams, has aimed to strengthen protections for rural schools against closures. We therefore call on her to stop the threat to our primary school and community and to urge Anglesey County Council to consider more suitable options.

Beaumaris has had a school for the last 400 years, but as a small town with an aging population, we need to remain attractive to families. Please show your support for rural schools and communities such as ours by signing this petition.
