Hay-on-Wye  Primary School

Dysgu heddiw i wneud yfory – Learning today to make tomorrow


Dear Parent/Guardian

Welcome to Hay on Wye Primary School Prospectus. It is my hope that as you read this prospectus, you will get a real flavour of all that we offer as a school. At Hay School we strive towards providing our young people the best start in life. Our School Community which consists of Head Teacher, teachers, teaching assistants, support staff, parents, guardians and governors work together to provide excellence in education and support where necessary.

Our aim is that every child has the best opportunity to both learn the core subjects as well as develop their abilities and talents by providing them with the right environment and tools. We want our young people to enjoy school as well as being inspired so they can imagine their future and encourage them to aspire their goals.

Here at Hay-on-Wye Primary School we work together to ensure that our children can learn in a safe and comfortable environment, where there is care and support for every child who attends. Our Governors are made up of members of staff and volunteers who are both parents and members of the community who have a real and genuine care and interest for the school. Our desire is that you and your child/children are confident in the school and part of the school community here in Hay on Wye.

If you have any questions, please ask us as we are here to answer them

Yours faithfully

Gordon J Bingham

Chair of Governors
