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.
