Our School Motto: ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’


Dear Parents

On behalf of the Governors and Staff I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Pontygwaith Primary School.

This is a happy, caring, secure school that takes great pride in educating children in such a way that they become self motivated in their own education. Staff are dedicated to providing the best education for all our pupils and we work hard to ensure that each child receives a programme of teaching that addresses their individual needs.

As a school community we take great pride in educating children in an environment that is challenging, exciting, and purposeful and in which everyone experiences success. We expect children to make good educational progress and be proud of their own, and their schools’ achievements.

We aim to develop self-disciplined individuals who care not only for themselves but also for those around them. We would wish for this mutual respect to extend between staff and pupils and for the helpful friendliness demonstrated between staff to have a positive effect on the children.

Home involvement is actively encouraged, as support from home is essential and complimentary to what we hope to achieve. In partnership together we will work for the benefit of our children.

We hope that by working together, our children will find themselves to be happy, fulfilled people, whose sense of wonder will stimulate the need to learn for many years to come.

I trust that you and your child will share many happy days at Pontygwaith Primary School.

Yours sincerely

Mr M. Davies
