Headteacher

Mr Illtud James

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you, on behalf of the children, staff and governors, to Ysgol Gymraeg Melin Gruffydd.

Melin Gruffydd aims to provide a warm, welcoming and supportive environment in which our pupils enjoy working and learning together. We care about the health and wellbeing of every child and want them to feel safe and secure so that they are able to take risks, are not afraid to make mistakes and can embrace learning.

We want the children to be happy and excited about coming to school to learn and to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide curriculum.

Our passion for education means that we inspire your children to develop a love of learning that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.

Our school motto ‘Cofia Ddysgu Byw’ reflects our high aspirations and ambitions for children and our drive and determination to ensure that all pupils and adults in the school reach their full potential. We are not complacent by any means and are continually looking for ways in which we can further improve the school.

At Melin Gruffydd, the staff and governors work in partnership with parents and carers. We value the contributions of a child’s whole family and are committed to building strong links with the community. We know that the more parents are engaged in their child’s learning the greater the achievement and we are delighted to talk with you about any aspect of your child’s learning and how you can support them at home.

As a school, we pride ourselves on being open and approachable and would encourage you to take the opportunity to visit us when we will be happy to welcome you.
