“EXCELLENT” – in all areas of our Gwella Section 50 RE Inspection – July 2019
“This is a caring church school community where the Christian values embedded… foster excellent relationships at every level.”
“The school is extremely well led by an inspirational Christian leader who ensures that all are valued within the school community. Her unwavering commitment to the school’s Christian mission promotes good relationships and a community of strong mutual support.”
“Pupils are growing into well-rounded and self-motivated young people… thoughtful, reflective, respectful, articulate, tolerant and independent.”
We are proud to be a Church in Wales Primary School and of our Christian values and ethos. We are proud of our close and strong links with the local church, the clergy and with the wider diocese, judged a strength in our recent Gwella Section 50 RE Inspection report – July 2019. Our Religious Education and Collective Worship is broadly of a Christian nature, however, we encourage empathy with other world faiths and emphasise the caring and sharing aspects of religion. The school follows the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon’s Religious Education Syllabus scheme. Church Schools are regularly inspected by the Church in Wales Inspectorate for schools, (our latest inspection report, of July 2019 is available for you to read either in school or on the school’s website). We also use Values Education which helps to supports our christian ethos and helps children leave our school as well-rounded citizens, equipped for society.
We hold special services to celebrate the major festivals of the Christian year: – Harvest, Christmas, Easter, Ascension Day, etc. You will always be informed of these services and invited to come along to join us and other members of the local community. There is a daily act of Collective Worship held in school, usually this is at 1.15pm. Parents do have the right to withdraw their child/children from RE lessons and from acts of worship, If parents do wish to withdraw their children, please contact the Headteacher and we will attempt to make arrangements to meet this need.
