A PUBLIC consultation has been launched by the council to involve the community in future decisions for schools in the Saltney and Broughton area.

Flintshire Council has announced that it will develop a plan that delivers a new strategy for education that is more affordable, sustainable and delivers the highest quality of education for students.

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 survey asks parents why they picked the chosen school for their child(ren), and what could be improved about the provision at the school. 

It then asks the community to agree or disagree with examples of work that could be done to the school such as reburbishment, maintenence, building extensions, merges, and alternatives to potential closures. 

The responses obtained from the community through these surveys will then help the council to shape future options that affect students and parents.

The survey is available from June 6 until July 3 at midnight and can be found HERE.

The council has also created a document for children with a child friendly questionnaire which can be found HERE.

Flintshire Council said: "We will aim to share the council's current thinking about the possible future shape of educational provision in the area and encourage open conversations about the various challenges in delivering a new model of provision."

The new plan is all part of seeking the community's commitment to work in a constructive partnership.


Schools in the Saltney and Broughton area hope to benefit from the new education model which will result in better facilities and opportunities for students to partake in.

The council aims to regularly review its new provision for education and is committed to developing and enhancing its schools for the benefit of Flintshire learners.

It will continue to work within the current economic climate which presents new challenges in delivering these changes with the support from the community
