• Demonstrate a strong, enthusiastic and inclusive vision and commitment to Welshness, the Welsh language and culture, in keeping with the current ethos of both schoolsand the local community.

Together as a federation, we can offer you…

• parents and carers who are supportive and involved and engaged in their children’s learning;
• an environment that is safe, positive, welcoming, and which promotes and celebrates success;
• a Governing Body that is committed to improvement and able to work closely with the schools and the headteacher to ensure all pupils and staff have the support needed to fulfil their potential.
