A new Welsh-medium primary school in the village of Sirhywi, near Tredegar, has been given the seal of approval by Blaenau Gwent Council’s Executive Committee.


Earlier this year, a consultation took place on a proposal to develop a 210-place Welsh-medium 'seedling' school in Chartist Way, with childcare facilities, a nursery, and reception class.


The school, which is scheduled to open in September 2023, received the backing of 93% of respondents as part of an online survey during the first consultation stage.


Blaenau Gwent is currently the only local authority in the country with just one Welsh-medium primary school.
