Welsh Medium School Places

Have you considered Welsh medium education for your child? New Welsh Medium school places will be available from September 2014 for Nursery and Reception aged pupils for the first time in Shotton and Deeside, in response to public demand.

Parents and guardians with children who will be 3 or 4 years old by 31st August 2014 can apply for a place in a school nursery or reception class for September 2014.

Flintshire County Council has been working in partnership with Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint and Mudiad Meithrin and this extra provision for Welsh Medium education will be available from September 2014 in the building currently used by Shotton Infant School on Plymouth Street. It will be called:

Ysgol Croes Atti @ Glannau Dyfrdwy
Croes Atti Primary School @ Deeside

Councillor Chris Bithell, Cabinet Member for Education, said:

“This is a great opportunity for children in the Shotton and Deeside area to have the benefit of being fully bilingual in Welsh and English, by receiving a Welsh Medium education. Admissions to reception classes for next year open on 30th September, and close on 29th November. Parents applying for nursery places can apply from 6th January 2014.  I would urge parents and guardians not to miss out on a place!”
