Welcome to...

Ysgol Gymuned Llanfechell

Welcome to Ysgol Gymuned Llanfechell's website. Here you can see the school's handbook, the school's news, dates for events and school holidays, local information and history. We have tried to ensure is easy and straight forward to use. Hopefully this sight will be useful to you as a visitor, parent or child.


We endeavor to create an atmosphere where each child feels safe and secure and is respected as an individual. We support, praise and ensure some form of success for each child, so that he/she may increase his/her self esteem.

"The right kind of education is not possible 'en masse'. To study each child requires patience, alertness and intelligence. To observe the child's tendencies, his aptitude, his temperament, to understand his difficulties, to take into account his heredity and parental influence and not merely regard him as belonging to a certain category - all this calls for a swift and pliable mind, untrammeled by any system and prejudice. It calls for skill, intense interest and above all, a sense of affection."

Krishnaumurti ( 1955)

Education and Significance of Man

We aim to establish a happy and hardworking atmosphere based on an interrelationship of respect and care between teachers', teachers and pupils, and pupils' care of each other. Such atmosphere and ethos enable pupils to behave positively and to develop self-confidence.


The school curriculum incorporates aspects of the four core subjects (Mathematics, Science, Welsh and English) and the seven basic subjects (Geography, History, Religious Education, Art, Technology, Music, Physical Education and Information and Communication Technology).

The  Theme  Framework

An extensive proportion of the curriculum is organised on the basis of thematic work, that is, a collection of work units that encompass elements from different programmes of study within the National Curriculum.

We greatly hope that the pupils see the work as interesting and relevant, and through careful planning, we feel that we are succeeding to ensure continuation and development in the education we offer.

summary of the themes that will be studied are attached at the end of this chapter. We hope that you feel that this framework is useful to you as parents mainly in order to be able to support the children at home through discussion, reading for information and so forth.

The  National  Curriculum

As for every other school the school’s work pattern is placed on the National Curriculum framework. In accordance with the organisation of the National Curriculum the school is divided into two Key Stages, KS1 and KS2. Pupils are assessed at the end of KS1 at 7 years of age and at the end of KS2 at 11 years of age, and the assessment results are reported to parents. The assessment results are published at the beginning of the Autumn Term as part of the Governors’ Annual Report to Parents. The 2003 end of KS1 and 2 assessment results are attached to the end of this chapter.

Policies  and  Work  Schemes

The aims, intentions and organisation of the school have been outlined in full in the Policies and Work Schemes of the school. Any parent who would like more information is welcome to study these documents by arrangement with the Headteacher.


The school hopes for parents’ co-operation and support with any additional activity arranged, such as evening concerts, concert practices, football, netball practices etc. Parents are requested to arrange transport home for children at the end of the activity.


The village section of the Urdd meet regularly at the school.


The fundamental principle of the 1988 Education Act was that educational activities should be free for every pupil. Despite that the school has a statutory right to ask parents to contribute towards the costs with the understanding that no pupil should suffer disadvantage if his parents are unable or unwilling to contribute.

Pupils are charged a fee for swimming lessons to meet the cost of transport to the Leisure Centre.

The annual sum for instrumental lessons  is indicated by the Instrumental Service.


The school has an official school uniform. Although there is no compulsion for pupils to wear it, we feel that a school uniform nurtures pride towards the school and the feeling of belonging to it, and therefore we greatly hope that parents will be ready to support the official dress of the school.           

Yellow polo shirt.                              

Dark blue jumper/sweat shirt.                     

Dark blue skirt/trousers.

The uniform can be ordered from North West Supplies, Llwyn Onn Industrial Estate, Amlwch (01407) 832020.


For safety reasons jewellery is not allowed in school. A plain watch, a signet ring and ear studs may be worn, but other kinds of ear-rings are not allowed.


Pupils should wear suitable shoes. Shoes with high heels may be dangerous and therefore they should not be worn for school.


Pupils are not allowed to bring toys to school.

Physical  Education

Pupils are expected to change to suitable clothes before a Physical Education lesson and back to their usual clothes at the end of the lesson. In the gymnastics and dance lessons pupils are encouraged to work in bare feet as this gives better sensitivity to their movements.

Educational  Visits

Pupils are expected to wear school uniform (if they possess one) unless notified to the contrary.

Names  on  clothing

You may venture that clothes get lost from time to time. It is a difficult task to find the owner if his/her name is not on the garment. We therefore beg you to ensure that there is a name label on each garment that is likely to be taken off in school, including coats and physical education clothes.




1.      At this school we aim to provide a balanced and expansive education that will enable pupils to take their place one day in the society within which they grow up. We try to develop the potential of each individual to its extent and to give him the necessary tools for his future. This is done within a happy and caring atmosphere where the pupil can grow and develop into a confident and responsible individual, who is aware of his own welfare and that of others within the school community and beyond.

2.      This means that the school curriculum is organised in a way that ensures that every pupil has the opportunity to develop in his understanding and knowledge, and in his ability to reason and communicate - and to do so in a way that reflects our bilingual society.

3.      Every effort is made to ensure the necessary provision for any pupil with special educational needs.

4.      We aim to develop the pupil’s interest in the world around him, promoting an awareness of our responsibility, for the environment.

5.      We try to ensure that curricular provision, extra-curricular activities, the ethos and atmosphere of the school promote the pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural  development to enable him to be a sensitive and responsible member of our community.

6.      We strive to ensure support and a close working partnership with all the parents of the school.
