Ysgol Glanwydden

‘Responsible. Respectful. Resilient.’

Ysgol Glanwydden serves the catchment area of Penrhyn Bay, Penrhynside, Bryn Pydew and Glanwydden. In September we have 310 pupils including part time (nursery) pupils.

We currently employ 13 teachers (12 class teachers and the headteacher), 8 classroom assistants, 2 lunchtime supervisors, 2 secretaries, dinner clerk, caretaker, 3 cleaners, cook and 3 kitchen assistants.

We believe that building a good relationship between home and school is important to a child’s learning, and we encourage parents to become involved with our school. Volunteer parents are welcomed to assist with reading, sports and other activities.

Confidence is gained in a school by being aware of, and understanding what is happening within it. Parents gain greater understanding through contacts and discussion with members of staff. It is important that our joint responsibility for a child’s education is based on mutual understanding and trust, and we encourage parents to take advantage of every invitation to meet with their child’s teachers.
