Glan yr Afon School Song!

The children from Glan yr Afon wrote the words and composed this song with "The Song Doctor".

Welcome to Glan yr Afon Primary School's website,


Glan yr Afon is the partner school of Bryn Hafod. We federated on 20th February 2020 as The Rainbow Federation. I am the Executive Headteacher and I work across both schools. Mr Graham Matthews is the Head of School. Glan yr Afon is a 1 form entry primary school in the east of Cardiff. We also have Flying Start on site. 


We have vast school grounds and we use these to run Forest Schools sessions for each child during the year. The children love these sessions!

We also have a school dog called Skully. Skully is a cockapoo and has achieved the gold award in The Dog Mentor training programme. He works one day a week, usually a Wednesday with Mrs Bryant. Skully lives with me when he is not in school.


As a school, we continue to aspire high in everything we do. At Glan yr Afon we place great emphasis on developing a strong partnership between home and school, as it is through working together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support that we can provide what is best for our children, in order that they may be happy, enriched and fulfil their potential before leaving us to start high school.


Your children will always be our number one priority but, as parents and carers, you too are an important part of the partnership between home and school to ensure that your child enjoys and achieves at school and takes away memorable moments and memories from their time at Glan yr Afon Primary School.


We hope that you will take the time to explore our school through our website, to gain a feel of what we are about; working together, through our shared vision "Linking learning to life..........inspiring children for exciting futures!"


I look forward to meeting you all

Rhian Lundrigan

Executive Headteacher
