We the undersigned call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to support small schools and in particular to support councils in keeping small schools open. We believe small schools to be a bedrock of rural communities, essential in the survival of the Welsh language, and most importantly, as loving, centres of academic excellence for our children. We politely request the Assembly to reconsider its use of the Audit Commissions classification criteria for schools as small, and its preferred funding for new build over refurbishment.
