Message from the Head Teacher
May I take this opportunity to welcome you to our Glynhafod Junior School website. Our school is situated at top of the village and is a single storey, dressed stone building with a pitched roof. The school is over a hundred years old and serves a very close-knit community. Many of our parents have grown up and remained in the area and this enhances the community spirit that helps us in our work at the school.
Your child will be entering a junior school which has approximately 105 children between the ages of seven and eleven years, administered by Rhondda-Cynon-Taff, Education and Children’s Services. We are in our final year as a junior school. In September 2018 we will be amalgamating with out neighbouring infant school to become an exciting primary serving the area of Cwmaman and Glynhafod.
We believe that we have a happy school in which all children can achieve their maximum potential. Education must be seen as a partnership between home and school as both teachers and parents have a common goal – the fullest possible, development of the child. The success of this process depends on complete cooperation between children, parents and teachers. Parents are always welcome at the school and we hope that we can develop an open, friendly and mutually beneficial relationship to aid the development of our pupils.
Our website provides information about our school, but no website, however can cover all aspects of school life, so please feel free to contact the school at any time if you have need of any further information.
We hope that your child will be very happy in our school and we look forward to your interest and support over the coming years.
Mr P Morgan
