Plans to close two Powys primary schools and create a new community school have been approved.

Talgarth and Bronllys primary schools will close on 31 August 2017 and then re-open temporarily as a single school across both sites the following day.

A new school will be built in Talgarth to open in 2018.

Powys council said the plans would enable children "to achieve their potential."

Arwel Jones, cabinet member for education, said: "We are committed to ensuring that our youngsters have access to the highest quality of education possible."
