Welcome to the Website of Ysgol Sant Dunawd

At Ysgol Sant Dunawd we have an established hardworking team of professionals who are committed to providing the best quality education for all of our pupils.  We aim to foster a warm and friendly atmosphere in which children’s self-esteem and respect for others can develop.  We provide opportunities for all pupils to reach their full potential, seek new challenges and take pride in their achievements.  The partnership between pupils, parents and school is vital and we value the support offered from parents many of whom not only help their children with homework but also offer their help and expertise in activities throughout the school day.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, assessment at seven and eleven shows that our pupils perform extremely well with performance figures for both consistently well above both national and local statistics.

In June 2004 the school was awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark reflecting our determination to highlight the importance of literacy and numeracy in our teaching.  In 2005 we received The The Impetus Award for our successful approach to the teaching of citixenship.  Currently the whole school is working towards achieving Healthy School status.

I hope that this prospectus provides you with much of the information that you require when making the important decision of choosing a school for your child.  If you have not already had the opportunity to visit the school and see the purposeful working environment we provide please do not hesitate to make an appointment, I shall be delighted to show you around and answer any further questions.

Inter School Liaison
Excellent liaison exists between the Pre School Play Group in Bangor-on-Dee with regular visits to the playgroup by our nursery staff and visits to school for families considering our nursery for their children.
Equally good liaison is well established with The Maelor School, Penley.  Regular meetings take place between staff and head teachers of both schools.  Pupils visit the Maelor School regularly for swimming lessons and to use other facilities.  The liaison teacher appointed by the Maelor School visits us regularly to establish contact with pupils due to make the Primary/Secondary transfer.
Admissions Policy
Our admissions policy gives priority to those children who live within the village and to those children who have siblings already at school.  Families who live outside the village are invited to make an application to school, which will be given full consideration within the terms of the County Admission Policy.  The Governing Body reviews our admissions policy regularly.
Nursery - provided for a half day.  Children are admitted in the September following their third birthday.
Reception- Children are admitted in the September following their fourth birthday.
The curriculum is planned with regard for National Curriculum requirements and County policies.  It is designed to complement and extend the experience, which the child brings to school.
Pupils attain standards well above the national average at the end of Key Stage 1 and 2.
Early Years
The Early Years department provides quality education for the under fives.  The Nursery operates in the morning, providing a programme of activities entirely separate from the Reception Year although the classes share many facilities within the unit.  The Nursery is aimed at specific desirable outcomes with play/practical activities matched to individual needs.  Children are encouraged to learn through practical experiences e.g. Role-play, music and movement, cookery, working in the nursery garden etc.
The Reception class builds on the experiences learnt in Nursery with the priority to match learning with the individual’s needs.  Practical experiences remain important alongside the rapid development of reading and numerical skills.  Home reading and learning tasks will be set from the Reception year.
Infant Department
In Y1 and Y2 the important skills of reading; writing, number, science, technology and ICT are further developed through stimulating tasks based on National Curriculum attainment targets and monitored as the work progresses. See here for a typical example of a day in the Year 2 class.
