Dear Visitor,

As the Headteacher of Rhiw Syr Dafydd Primary School it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.  I hope it provides you with the comprehensive information you require and a glimpse into the life of the school.  At Rhiw Syr Dafydd we truly feel that we are at the heart of the local community.

Rhiw Syr Dafydd  is very fortunate to have a team of very skilled, dedicated professionals who work hard to ensure that children enjoy coming to school and that they are working hard each day to achieve their dreams. The commitment of staff, parents, governors and the PTA is phenomenal and is something that should be celebrated.

Our school mission is ‘Respectful, Sharing, Determined, Passionate’.  We stand firmly by these words and endeavour to teach our pupils to be ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives and who are ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world. From the moment our children enter Nursery we believe in fostering in our pupils a Growth Mindset. We want our children to embrace daily challenges and to use the experiences to make them stronger. We want our children to work beyond their expectations so that only then will they truly realise that the impossible is indeed possible.

The school is a vibrant learning community with pupils who demonstrate extremely positive attitudes to learning and engage fully in individual and collaborative group tasks. Most pupils display exceptional levels of confidence and independence from a very early age. They are very polite and respectful towards adults and each other and show considerable care and consideration for others.  The school is an inclusive learning community with an outstanding ethos and sense of unity that supports the learning and wellbeing of pupils greatly.

I have so much more I could say about our amazing school but I think it is best to end by stating, my introduction to the school and the website only offers a window into the heart of our school, so please feel free to open the door and arrange a visit to the school at its daily best.
