School with no pupils to remain open
Pupil-less school kept open at cost of £110,000 - Education News, Education - The Independent
A primary school is being kept open at a cost of up to £110,000 despite not having any pupils.
The local council cannot close Ysgol Capel Iwan until it has finished a statutory consultation process, even though the classrooms are empty.
The headteacher will be at the school near Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire, at the start of term next month in case any children turn up.
Carmarthenshire County Council said a budget of £110,000 had been set aside in accordance with funding regulations, assuming the school stays open until the end of next March.
Its governing body will remain in place until the school is formally closed.
