Dear Parents/Carers,

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, welcome to our website!

After valuable feedback, it is in the middle of an important transition, so I ask that you are patient with us if some of the elements seem a little dated still. I promise these will be tackled shortly.

Many other areas are regularly updated in order for you to keep up to date with important events and information.

You can also download our free app by clicking on the link at the top right of this page. You will receive a notification every time the website is updated which will ensure you are always up to speed with what is happening at Maes-y-Llan.

In my present role as Acting Headteacher, I consider myself very fortunate to have such amazingly, dedicated staff and supportive PTA, GB and families from our local community. All of 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 warm, family feel, as has been noted by numerous visitors who have set foot through our doors over the years.

Don’t just take my word for it, here were Estyn’s thoughts during our last inspection in 2017:

“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 we have an open door policy, and want to make you aware that you are always welcome to visit the school to discuss any aspect of school life.

Cofion Cynnes,

Mrs Jo Lewis

Acting Headteacher
