'I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand' Confucius 551-479BC.





At Ynystawe Primary, we are all one big family: pupils, staff, parents, carers, governors, the community and the local authority,  working together to raise our children and to prepare them for their lives ahead.


We have adopted the book; "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child" as our school book.  We all agree that by working together, and by sharing the same values, we can give our children the best possible learning opportunities and experiences while they are with us.


We are a school where ALL are valued and helped to achieve their personal best in everything they do. Our creative, educational vision is clear and we are passionate about both sharing it and realising it. I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care.


We aim to create a nurturing, learning environment where children come in happy in the morning and go home bursting with excitement about the learning experiences they have had that day.  We aim to develop Key Skills, not only in subject areas but also those that are essential for happy, successful and fulfilling daily lives, thus developing the 'whole child.'


We believe in giving children opportunities to take responsibility and measured risks, to  develop their independence and resilience and to make decisions that will affect themselves and their peers positively. Together we learn key values that will guide our children in the way they lead their lives.  We believe in supporting our children to grow in self-belief and to help them to see more clearly what they are capable of.  


We are passionate about inclusion and equality; educational opportunities should be open to all regardless of ability, gender or race.
