Meet The Governors / Cyfarfod a'r Llywodraethwyr

Welcome to the Governors' section!


The Governing Body of The Rainbow Federation - Glan-yr-Afon and Bryn Hafod Primary School welcomes you to our website, and hope you find it very informative and inspiring.


As a Governing Body, we assist the Executive Headteacher in strategically leading the school to ensure it provides the very best teaching and learning experiences, the very best curriculum, and the very best care, support and guidance, for every single pupil with us.


Across the Rainbow Federation, leaders have children’s safety, welfare and learning at the forefront of all decision-making. Each member of staff and each governor is a leader of at least one aspect of the school’s life, working as a strong team to improve and raise standards. Pupil voice, through the School and Eco Councils, and parent consultation through regular meetings, parent-council and surveys, mean that the whole school community is part of the consultation and decision making process.


The Executive Headteacher and her Senior Leadership Team work with all aspects of the school community to identify priorities, plan and action developments for these, and to closely monitor impact and outcomes. The Governing Body monitors school improvement priorities through regular visits to the school for meetings and learning walks; it also spends time on scrutiny of documentation and ensures that a rigorous appraisal procedure of the Executive Headteacher and staff is adhered to. In all, the inclusive ethos of high expectations across The Rainbow Federation is key to the successful learning of all our children.
