“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Herefordshire County Council School Transport

Herefordshire County Council School Transport

We have this morning received confirmation from Herefordshire County Council transport department confirming that for the foreseeable future that the council are unable to provide transport before or after school for your child/children.

The email states:

“Following the collapse of the JMC taxi and minibus company overnight there will be no school transport from that company until further notice.

This office is urgently seeking alternative transport solutions for all the riders but it is unlikely this will happen soon. There are 135 school children to 10 different schools on about 30 separate vehicles. It is not possible to find alternative transport in such short notice.

regards Dave
Dave Baldwin
Transport Co-ordinator”

We will of course keep you up-to-date with the situation as and when we hear more.
