School consults on nursery unit

1 February 2017

St Paul’s Church in Wales Primary School is consulting on plans to build a nursery unit for 32 children on its site.

Public meetings are being arranged over the next couple of weeks, with the governors saying it would be an “eco-nursery” for children from the age of three and also include provision for a skills centre which could have wider community benefits.

The consultation document says there is a shortage of nursery places in Grangetown, adding: “Whilst the proposal would increase the number of nursery places available in the local area it is not expected that the number of pupils on roll at others schools would be affected as the number of children in the Grangetown area would still exceed the number of places available.”

The nursery entrance would be in Clive Street, while the documents says most children would walk to the nursery and it would not add to traffic congestion.

It said the skills centre “would extend learning opportunities to our parents and wider community”. It said skills sessions would run alongside nursery sessions so parents would be able to attend at the same time as their children.

Local people are invited to drop in to the school to discuss the proposals with governors and staff on Thursday 9th February 2017 at 4.30pm and on Wednesday 15th February at 9am.

They can also give their views by downloading the consultation document here and posting responses back to the school by March 13th or emailing

The outcome of the formal consultation – which also includes the diocese and other organisations – will decide whether the school’s governors then proceed to the next stage.
