The governors and Clwyd education authority have been given 40 days and a further 10 days respectively to produce a plan following an inspection of the school in February by the office of Her Majesty's chief inspector of schools in Wales which concluded that it was a failing school.

Welsh secretary William Hague said:

'I am very concerned at the failure of Ysgol y Wern School to provide its pupils with an acceptable standard of education. Parents expect their children to be provided with a good education to equip them properly for life.

'While the school has a significant amount of work to do to address the weaknesses highlighted in the inspection report, I am satisfied that the governing body and the local education authority have, in their action plans, given full and serious consideration to what needs to be done to raise standards.

'I have asked the inspectors to monitor the implementation of the action plan closely and to advise me on progress. I shall not hesitate to set up an education association to run the school if progress is not satisfactory.'
