Education Provision in the Saltney and Broughton Area

Published: 06/06/2023

Flintshire County Council is committed to continuing to modernise the County’s schools to ensure the provision of a high performing education and increased opportunities for Flintshire pupils to benefit from ‘state of the art’ learning environments and the highest quality teaching. 

It is vital that the Council works closely with the communities in Saltney and Broughton to develop a plan that delivers a new strategy for education in the area that is affordable, sustainable and delivers on its overall objective to deliver the highest quality primary and secondary education for learners. 

The first step is for the Council is to engage with the local communities in Saltney and Broughton in a process to seek their views. The purpose of this early engagement exercise is to: - 

  • Share the Council’s current thinking about the possible future shape of educational provision in the area with key stakeholders
  • Have an open conversation about the various challenges in delivering a new model of provision
  • Understand the views of the local communities and seek their commitment to work in constructive partnership with the Council, to achieve a new delivery model that results in the best facilities to support positive outcomes for learners within the financial resources available.

Council officers and the headteachers in St David’s High School, Wood Memorial Primary School, Saltney Ferry Primary School and Broughton Primary School have worked together in partnership to create an ‘Early Engagement’ document and short survey. The responses from the community will help to shape future options. It is important to stress that the Council has not made any decisions regarding educational provision in the area.

The Early Engagement questionnaire will be open between 6 June 2023 to midnight 3rd July 2023 and further information can be found on the Council’s website
