Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with pride that I present our new school website to you. I hope that the website will give you a rounded
picture of what I, along with the staff, children, parents and Governors of the school are trying to achieve here at
Ysgol Gellifor. It is every parent’s right to expect a good education for their children, but we also want them to be happy, to feel valued and safe. At Ysgol Gellifor we believe that we can offer your child the experiences which will provide these things; a good quality learning experience
and a happy, safe environment.
We pride ourselves in the broad, balanced and full education program that we provide in the Foundation Phase (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6). The high standards of teaching and learning at Ysgol Gellifor are a credit to the hard work of both staff and pupils. We are equally proud of the ethos and atmosphere, which pervade every aspect of school; friendliness, respect and co- operation are of great importance to us all. The ethic of teamwork is, I feel, also extremely important and is woven through all aspects of the school, not only between staff, but also on the classroom floor and in the strong links with parents, Governors and the local community.
Visitors often comment on the warm welcome they receive and the politeness of our children. We strive to give the children the opportunity to reach out into the community and gain as wide a palate of experiences as is possible. We certainly believe that extra curricular visits enhance the formal aspects of our children’s education. The staff enjoy taking the children on out-of-school activities because they are proud of them and they are indeed a credit to the school.
I very much look forward to meeting you. If you wish to visit the school or have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr Richard Monteiro
