THE SCHOOL AND ITS PRIORITIES
Llannon Primary School is situated in a pleasant position in the village of Llannon about six miles to the north of Llanelli. The school has been classified as an A category school by Carmarthenshire LEA. This means that the life and work of the school is carried out through the medium of Welsh, but that the school strives to ensure that pupils are completely bilingual by the time they transfer to the secondary schools of Maes yr Yrfa and Gwendraeth.
At present 85 pupils are on roll. The school states that the catchment area is rural and around 31% of pupils come from homes where Welsh is the main language or where one parent speaks Welsh.
The schools' present priorities are to establish a safe, attractive and stimulating environment that promotes learning, to create meaningful links with the community and to ensure that there are teachers of a high standard who have the resources to carry out their duties and who are able to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, so that all pupils can reach their potential.
The school was inspected in the Autumn Term 2001.
Llannon Primary School, Llanelli is a close and caring community. Pupils work and play together happily; they show respect towards each other, teachers and visitors. The quality of teaching and pupils' positive attitudes to their work contribute greatly to the good standards achieved and to the life of the school in general.
