Our school, Ysgol Heulfan, was opened in September 2005. It is the result of the amalgamation of the Infant School (Ysgol Bryn Golau) and Junior School (Ysgol y Drindod).
Today, there are 310 pupils on roll (mainstream) and 22 pupils attend Y Canol (resourced provision that caters for the needs of children with severe learning difficulties and/or profound and multiple learning difficulties).
There has been considerable refurbishment to the classroom areas, to help us make the school a comfortable and pleasant learning environment.
The classrooms are attractively laid out and features include:
Practical teaching areas for art, craft, design and technology
Two school halls with apparatus for P.E, Drama, Music and Movement, school productions and assemblies
A well stocked library
Two computer suites (with new flat screen computers) and access to interactive whiteboards in every learning area.
A well attended and popular after school club – Open Door Club.
Playgroup Plus (for our Nursery children to attend in the afternoons) and a free Breakfast Club which opens at 8:15 a.m.
Outside facilities comprise of separate Infant and Junior Playgrounds and a large playing field.
Specialist facilities in Y Canol include soft play and sensory stimulation rooms and a hydrotherapy pool.
"Working together to be the best we can be!"
The staff at Ysgol Heulfan aim to work together to provide a happy, safe environment for all pupils to work and socialise in; we want our pupils to look forward to coming to school and to enjoy learning.
We will teach our pupils how to behave and how to treat each other. Our school motto is:
‘treat others as you like to be treated.’
We want all of our pupils to achieve and thus expect them to work hard and to try their best at all times. We have high expectations and want all of our pupils to succeed.
