An introduction message from the Headteacher...
it is my privilege to be serving Brynhyfryd Primary School to improve even through these unprecedented times. I would like to reassure all children, families and staff that I am here to support YOU! The school's motto has never been more appropriate, as families and staff look to progress children's learning between and over frequent lockdowns...
"Dream, believe, achieve TOGETHER!..."
Our children have the right to an education of the highest quality possible. We want every child to experience personal achievement, and progress in their learning is at its best when we work as families and staff in partnership. I am proud to be part of the work our school community is doing to ensure this. There have never been more challenges for our children, families and staff to overcome, but this has not stopped the school community working TOGETHER! I have been witness to so many skillful, organised and creative ways in which everyone has pulled together, and research shows that this is most effective when everyone values community members' wellbeing by being supportive and encouraging.
The biggest stimulant to learning for any child is good welfare and wellbeing, and so our duty of care must always be to ensure children's welfare and wellbeing above all. If any members of our school community are struggling with this, then I strongly urge you to contact myself, a member of the school's pastoral team, a friend, or your class teacher in order for us to help or signpost you to support.
If you are not part of our school community but would like to know more, please feel free to look around this website which is becoming the centre of our school community's online-activity. If you would like to know more about us, please feel free to contact the school by your preferred method from the menu on our 'contact us' page. We look forward to hearing from you!
Warm regards to you all,
Bore da o'r athrawon!
