Our Head Teacher

  • Dear Parents/Guardians,

    It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the Acting Headteacher of Ysgol Y Waun. After twenty-four years in education across England and Wales I am committed to creating a happy and engaging learning environment that supports the academic, social and emotional growth of all pupils.

    I am proud to have played a part in our latest Estyn inspection and as the Acting Headteacher, I am dedicated to building on the excellent work that has already been done, and to continue to provide a well-rounded education that prepares our pupils for success in all aspects of their lives.

    At Ysgol Y Waun we are passionate about ensuring that each and every child develops with self-confidence, developing a growth mind set and achieving their full potential across the spectrum of experiences that are on offer. We believe that the whole child should be nurtured as well as aiming for everyone in our care to leave ready for their next educational chapter.

    We are extremely fortunate in having a hugely committed staff who form a strong, caring and forward thinking team. The staff of the school ensure that they create an atmosphere of richness, interest and challenge. Both children and staff are encouraged to set and strive for high standards. It is essential to provide each of our children with the opportunity to develop emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. This will help us continue to develop a caring ethos where staff and children can experience tolerance, justice and a sense of self-worth, ultimately leading to children who respect themselves, others and their environment.

    I look forward to you and your child joining our Ysgol Y Waun, “family” and to meeting you on many future occasions throughout the learning journey.
    Mrs Rodgers
