Entering the school for the first time is a very big step in your child’s life as well as your own. We want this transition from home to school or from school to school to be as smooth as possible. Hopefully, this website and our prospectus will help, however, if you have any outstanding questions, please visit the school with your child and see for yourself how happy the children are and how well they work with their teachers.
We are very proud of the pupils at Ysgol y Bedol. Every year we have many visitors to the school and frequently they make comments about how well our pupils behave and how courteous they are. The school is proud of its reputation for concern for the individual child, both in terms of welfare and educational provision.
The facilities and extended learning opportunities offered at Ysgol y Bedol are excellent and the many activities offered to the pupils ensure that they become effective lifelong learners.
The school receives many requests in relation to preparing children for this transfer. I do hope some of the following suggestions prove useful. They are far from conclusive and I’m sure you too will have valuable ideas of your own to add. In partnership, I’m sure we will be able to give your child the very best start to his/her life at Ysgol y Bedol.
I believe we can only achieve the best for your child by close co-operation between home and school. Without the involvement of parents, our task is that much more difficult and less enjoyable. I hope that you will take a close interest in what you child is doing in school and will encourage learning and its importance in later life.
We look forward to showing you around Ysgol y Bedol, so that the calm, friendly and motivating ethos can be experienced first hand.
