This school is an important part of this community. Through its engagement with the community it has fostered a sense of belonging and resilience in the children that have been fortunate to have benefited from an education at this wonderful school. Busing children to larger schools is a retrograde step in my opinion and will be of no benefit to the children.
Please spare our wonderful school it is at the heart of our community.

This school is the heart of the community! Several members of my family have attended this school - going back generations! My maternal Great Grandfather; his daughter (my Nain); my husband and his brothers; and our own 2 children! Many happy memories of this school! It would be a sad loss to the village if the school closed. Funding is always going to be an issue, but the numbers should surely go up with all the family houses being built in the village! The Council should give the school a chance. Let the village grow a bit more before they make a decision! Very bad timing with the Pandemic going on too - children have had enough stress and disruption over the last year!

For our children and the community we need to try and keep our school, it may cost more to keep open but it's so important to help it open.

I went to Castle school years ago as did my brothers and sisters. School is not just a building, it's the heart of a village, it's where social bonds are formed helping the community thrive. Without it the village dies and turns into a corridor for cars speeding through. We fought off closure in the 1960s with far fewer pupils. In a Covid world, small class size and ample space should be something to celebrate.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I know how this feels. We too have new houses going up in our village but our school - Clyro Church in Wales Primary, faces redundancies and a closure by stealth. I wish you the best of luck. xx
