Election of Parent Governors - Federation of Bryngwyn School & Glan-Y-Mor School

Election of Parent Governors - Application Form

Governing bodies at Glan y Môr in Burry Port and Bryngwyn in Llanelli have both agreed to federate from September 1, 2014.  The aim of the federation is for the schools to work in partnership to:

• Develop the excellent shared practice that guarantees outstanding experiences and increased opportunities for pupils and staff.

• Develop the common goals and reflective approaches to teaching and learning that will ensure that both communities benefit     from a quality education.

Carmarthenshire County Council’s executive member for education Cllr. Keith Davies said: “This will ensure significant positive outcomes and improved standards for all.  Federation will increase the potential for both schools to build capacity and sustainability through the development of systems, structures and processes. The key challenge for both schools is to drive up standards at a time when expectations are rising nationally and the whole curriculum is changing. Collaboration and partnership will build the confidence and capacity of staff to meet this challenge.”

The shift is part of a national school to school improvement programme, known as the Lead and Emerging Practitioner School Project, which aims to boost standards at both schools.  It will be aided by a grant from the Welsh Government of £90,000.Parents, pupils, staff and partners were consulted about the proposal being brought in under the Federation of Maintained Schools and Miscellaneous Amendments (Wales) Regulations 2010 (Welsh Statutory Instrument W.64, April 2010). Both schools will remain based at the same sites, retain their individual names, character, uniform and ethos.

Bryngwyn headteacher Paul Jones said: “A collaborative approach will ensure that both schools continue to improve and display excellent practices, providing all learners with outstanding curriculum opportunities teaching, learning support, care and guidance.  This approach was endorsed by both school councils who unanimously considered the opportunities and benefits and who now look forward to a new and exciting ways of working.”

Glan y Môr headteacher Steve Jones added: “The news that the Federation of Bryngwyn and Glanymor was given approval by the governing bodies of both schools was welcomed by the pupils and staff of Glan y Môr.  An exciting new chapter in the life of the school now begins as plans are already being made on how the staff of both schools can work together to share ideas on how to develop stronger links and enhance learning in both schools."
