TO WORK MORE CLOSELY
In line with Welsh Assembly Government policy, Monmouthshire County Council
is to draw up plans to ensure that sixth forms at Caldicot and Chepstow
Schools work in a more integrated way. The schools already co-operate
in the joint running of some courses. The plans are in very early stages
and reports that the two sixth forms are to merge appear to be premature.
Andrew Keep, Director of Lifelong Learning at MCC denied that there were
any plans to “remove sixth form provision” from any of the
county’s secondary schools.
In response to comments from Monmouthshire MP David Davies, Superintendent
Dave Johnson denied that there were any plans to close the police station
at Caldicot, or elsewhere in Monmouthshire. He sought to reassure the
public that although response officers, who compliment the neighbourhood
policing teams, were based at Cwmbran, they were deployed to patrol local
areas such as Caldicot.
The cheapest house advertised in the local press for sale in Caldicot
at the end of April 2009 was, as in March, a one bedroom property in Keats
Road at £92,950. The most expensive was a six bedroom detached property
in Chepstow Road at £325,000.
