Vision and Aims

Our Vision


Our school will endeavour to provide a challenging and stimulating experience-based curriculum for every child, and this in the security of a happy and welcoming aesthetic learning environment.

We envisage all children achieving their full potential as ambitious, capable learners in order ultimately to take their place in society as enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work.

At all times we strive to promote a culture wherein we feel a sense of belonging and pride in our school and also a belief in ourselves as ethical, informed, technologically competent citizens of Wales and the world.

We aim to be healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society, ready to learn throughout our lives.





(Confucius 551-479BC)






Our Aims


Our aims for Ynystawe Primary School are to provide rich, inclusive experiences for all children.  We will strive to promote an open, collaborative and evaluative culture for all within a warm, welcoming environment.  We will endeavour to ensure that:

  • the curriculum we provide is broad and balanced to allow every child with the opportunity to progress, and that this progress is celebrated and built upon,  
  • children become autonomous and reflective learners, developing independence from their earliest days in school;
  • we develop children’s lively imaginations, enquiring minds with the ability to question, reason and reflect;
  • our starting point will always be what a child CAN do and not where we think that he or she should be;
  • our curriculum is under-pinned by the four purposes and based on first-hand experiences which are intensely lived by the children;
  • we create the right climate for our children to develop skills, attitudes and values through the six areas of learning experience:

1. Health and Well-being

2. Languages, Literacy and Communication

3. Mathematics and Numeracy

4. Information Technology

5. Science and technology

6. Expressive Arts

  • we will help children understand and care for the world in which they live, making optimum use of our resources, in particular our school grounds and the surrounding area;
  • we promote children’s respect for religion and moral values and their understanding and tolerance of the beliefs of others;
  • we aim to teach our children to be to be responsible citizens and to understand that with rights come responsibilities.
