Working together to achieve

Headteacher's Message

Welcome to Glan-yr-Afon Primary School.


Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important. Most parents want a good education for their child but they also want them to be happy and to feel safe and secure in school. At Glan-yr-Afon we believe we can offer all these things.


We pride ourselves on the broad balanced and full education we provide both in the Foundation Phase (Early Years and Key Stage One) and Key Stage Two The high standards of teaching and learning, a credit to the hard work of both pupils and staff, were recognised by Estyn Inspectors as being above the national average for Wales. Equally we are proud of the atmosphere of friendliness and co-operation which is always evident reflecting our vision ‘Working Together to Achieve’


We do value all our pupils and we believe that their time in school should be rewarding and fulfilling. In choosing to send your child to Glan-yr-Afon I am fully confident you will have made the right decision.


If you have a question that needs answering or a problem that has occurred do not hesitate to contact me or one of my team. We will be pleased to talk to you are pleased to help.

I hope you will enjoy exploring our web site and that it will give you a very good idea of what the school offers.
