PARENTS DEMAND NEW SCHOOL
Parents in Caldicot have responded to Monmouthshire County Council's plans to close Green Lane Junior School by demanding that a new school be built on the site. Following a "strategic review" the council proposes an expansion of Sandy Lane and West End infant schools to cater for the displaced children. This was rejected by a number of parents at a 200 strong consultation meeting. At the meeting, Phil Cooke, Director of Education, pointed out that a new primary school would cost 3 million.
