Welcome to Penygaer Primary School.
On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Penygaer Primary School’s website.
The school, situated in Llanelli, is a happy school and we are proud of the good reputation of our children. Our goal is to give your child a good start in life. We aim for high standards in work and behaviour, and by offering a wide range of experiences we hope to give your child the opportunity to achieve his or her potential.
Our school caters for children between the ages of 3 and 11. It is a bright and cheerful place with eight classes - Nursery, Reception and Years 1 to 6. In addition to the classrooms, the school has a hall (used for assemblies, P.E., dinner, Breakfast Club, concerts etc.), two rooms for teaching small groups, a library and a small kiln room.
Penygaer Primary School has a wonderful outside area which would be the envy of many schools. A grass slope, with woodland at different stages of development, has a roundhouse, a dipping pond, an amphitheatre outside classroom, a gardening area and meadow areas. There are also play pipes, large musical instruments, whisper pipes and seats, and all these things are linked by all-weather paths. More recently, all sorts of climbing frames have been installed, catering for all levels of physical development. The latest addition to our play experience is the Penygaer Play Pod, an innovative project to provide opportunities for imaginative, cooperative play. Our outdoor area is truly an inviting and inspiring environment for play and outside learning.
Governors and staff work closely together to provide a high standard of education for all our pupils, within a happy, stimulating and secure learning environment. We encourage pupils to take responsibility for their learning, to grow in confidence and become more independent. We believe that children learn best when staff and parents work together in close partnership and so we value parent involvement with the development of our children's education. We promote good behaviour so that every child can achieve their potential.
We hope this website will give you an idea of what our school is like and that you enjoy exploring the site.
Mr A Stevenson (Headteacher)
