Croeso gan y Cadeirydd / Chair’s Welcome
Ysgol Gynradd Gymunedol Gymraeg Llantrisant
Dear Parents and Friends,
At YGGG Llantrisant, Governors, staff, parents and children work together in a happy and creative environment. The school has high expectations of the children and this is evident in the exceptional behaviour displayed throughout the school as well as in the consistently high academic standards.
The Governing Body is involved with our school at every level. This includes finance, safeguarding, premises management and staff appointments. As Governors, we consider our most important role to be the safety, welfare and education of our pupils and aim to act as critical friends to the school to ensure that all decisions are made in the children’s best interests.
The children in our school achieve high standards across the curriculum. We are justifiably very proud of them and would like to thank the parents who encourage and support their children so admirably. In a good school, such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child’s learning and development which allows children to develop motivation and interest in their learning in the classroom. All the information about what the children are learning as well as the schools vision; pictures and updates can be found on the school’s website, Twitter feed and app.
A fundamental objective of YGGG Llantrisant is the promotion of the Welsh language and bilingualism; despite many of the children coming from English speaking homes this is evident in all classrooms. Children are taught to communicate effectively in reading, writing and spoken language in both English and Welsh.
Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met, and that future planning is both visionary and realistic. We provide strategic direction for the improvement of the school; monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school and hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education. We are here to support and encourage our Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and all school personnel to ensure that every one of our children has access to an enriched education and to all the opportunities that they deserve. We make regular visits to the school and are always thrilled to see how happy and confident the children are; teachers work hard to nurture the children’s independent skills from foundation phase through to year 6.
I am immensely proud to have been appointed Chair of Governors of YGGG Llantrisant and look forward to supporting the committed Headteacher and staff to continue to develop our wonderful school. The children in YGGG Llantrisant are a credit to their parents; teachers and community and they transition to local secondary schools as confident, happy and successful pupils ready to continue their education.
Should you wish to contact me to discuss any matter further, I can be reached c/o firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible throughout the school year.
Chair of Governors
