Croeso gan y pennaeth Headteacher's Welcome

Ar ran yr holl blant, staff a llywodraethwyr, hoffwn ymestyn croeso cynnes i chi.

On behalf of all the children, staff and governors I would like to extend a warm welcome to you.

Cantref Primary School is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. The values of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child have permeated all aspects of the school community. Staff are dedicated to providing children with a high quality education within a setting that promotes co-operation, concern for others and environmental awareness.


At Cantref we firmly believe that the primary phase of education is one of the most important in a child’s learning journey and at the centre of their future development. It is a time when we aim to nurture in children a lifelong love of learning. Cantref is a welcoming, lively and happy school where all learners, whatever their own individual characteristics, feel secure and achieve their full potential. Your child’s talents and achievements are as important to us as they are to you.


The whole school community work together to provide children with the very best learning opportunities.  We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent.  We believe that our children learn best when members of staff and parents work in partnership and so we value your involvement with your child's education. As a parent of three children I recognise that the partnership between home and school is a vital one

Children coming into our school bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them.  It is our aim to build on these skills and promote a willingness and enthusiasm to learn more. 

We are very proud of our school and our pupils' achievements.  We believe that the combination of our committed staff, the determination of our pupils and the support of their families helps to make Cantref a rich, creative and happy place for your child to flourish, grow and belong to.


Thank you for your interest in our school. If you would like to visit the school or would like to ask any questions please telephone for an informal chat.


Diolch yn fawr

Kind regards
