Our wonderful rural school under attack
Do you want to join us in making a difference? Friends of Clyro School are raising money for an extremely important cause and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution that you have made, it means so much to us.
Clyro Primary School is a small rural school in Powys, bordering England and Wales. It is one of the top performing schools in the Local Authority, as seen in our 2019 inspection report which said it is a “caring community where pupils
are happy and feel secure…behaviour is excellent and pupils thrive as confident capable learners.” Standards are high and well-being and care are a strength.
Last year numbers attending school dropped from 91 to 89, which doesn’t seem a significant drop, but because of the peculiar funding system used by Powys County Council our budget was cut by £55,000. Apparently, they use a tiered system in blocks of 30, so falling below 90 meant a cut of 25% of staffing costs as they want to reduce the number of classes from 4 to 3, even though by next year, numbers are predicted to rise above the threshold.
The Governors refused to agree to the Council’s proposals as this is detrimental to children having classes of up to 38 and so Powys have removed the financial control from the school and are intending on making a teacher redundant. We believe this will sound the death knoll for our school, putting it into a downward spiral. Please help us to protect the future of our brilliant school in this deep rural area and keep our successful team of staff together. We have a caring family ethos in Clyro and if you are kind enough to donate, please know that this will allow us to continue to help create happy, confident and creative children in the most special environment.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
