I am very concerned that ten pupils have been refused places at Ysgol Cedewain, a Special School in Newtown.
This is in spite of an admissions panel ruling that they should be granted places.
This situation is grossly unfair and these children need to be admitted straight away.
I visited the school personally last Thursday to meet teachers and Governors to discuss this matter and I am concerned that these vulnerable children could lose vital ground in their education.
I have written to Powys County Council, The Education Minister and the Children’s Commissioner to try to get this resolved as soon as possible.
