I consider myself very fortunate to have such great staff and a supportive PTA and GB. All these groups working together help ensure we are a happy vibrant school where children are excited to come, and where they can fulfil their academic and social potential.
Our numbers have increased steadily over the years, yet we still maintain the feel of a small close-knit school with a real family feel.
Do not just take my word for it, what do Estyn think of us?
“Provision for ensuring pupils’ care, support and guidance is a strength of the school.
The standard of behaviour is high in lessons and around the school.
All staff members have positive working relationships with pupils.
Teachers make imaginative use of a broad range of texts to inspire and motivate pupils to engage enthusiastically in their learning. As a result, learning is purposeful and in context.
The school provides a supportive, caring environment where all pupils are valued and treated with respect.
Staff believe that all pupils’ abilities can be developed and that effort leads to success. They encourage pupils to think positively.
Staff are very effective in identifying pupils’ additional learning needs at an early stage. They ensure that additional support is flexible and matches closely each targeted pupil’s needs.
Many aspects of the curriculum, together with the ethos of the school, provide extensive opportunities for pupils to develop their understanding of moral issues.
The school provides an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs that provide worthwhile opportunities for pupils to develop their social skills.”
In conclusion, may I emphasise that you are always welcome to visit the school to discuss any aspect of school life.
Mr Phil Hamilton
