Clyro C.I.W. Primary School

Many hands build a house, many hearts build a school

School of Sanctuary

We are currently applying to become a "School of Sanctuary". This is our pledge: 

We are an all-inclusive, family orientated, welcoming Church in Wales Primary School, at the heart of our local community. We have strong links with our local church and clergy, support our Dementia Friends and local charities, and together we welcome all faiths and walks of life, supporting all children and families within our community. Our school motto is "Many hands build a house, many hearts build a school" and we believe strongly that by loving, caring and encouraging every pupil to fulfil their potential, we can unlock their creativity and sense of awe and wonder. Our vision for the Curriculum for Wales is "Nurture, Wonder, Thrive" and we wish this for all       pupils. Every year we work with Brecon Foodbank to support families in need and were a local community collection point for donations of items and medical supplies shipped out to Ukrainian refugees."


This term, some of our Religion, Values and Ethics work has focussed on becoming a School of Sanctuary and welcoming refugees. We have been learning about refugees and welcomed 2 visitors, Michael and Otis. We also donated wrapped Christmas gifts this year to Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees to distribute.
