Ysgol Felinwnda, being a small rural school, can describe itself as having a happy and friendly environment where the children have an important role in the day-to-day arrangements. Each child is given the opportunity to develop according to his or her own ability and receive the utmost support that the teachers can offer.
The school is divided into two classes, Miss Thomas is in charge of Nursery, Reception, Year 1, and 2, whilst Year 3, 4, 5 and Year 6 are taught by Mr Thomas. This division is not rigidly adhered to because the staff exchange classes so as to fully utilise the teachers’ strengths and so as to enable the children to receive the best possible education.
It is the school’s belief that parents play a crucial role in their child’s development, and consequently an open door policy exists here, an arrangement by which following obtaining an appointment, parents may visit the school at any time to discuss their children’s development.
One parent recently described Ysgol Felinwnda as “a Family School”, and that is exactly the aim and objective of staff and governors, namely to ensure that the children feel secure and confident thus enabling them to develop.
