Our vision at Pentrehafod School is to provide the best possible education for all of our students and to continue to be an exceptional school that adds significant value to all members of the school community during their time with us. We do this by relentlessly sustaining our culture that is aspirational and ambitious for excellence in all that we do. We achieve this by offering a broad, knowledge and skills rich curriculum that has high academic, vocational and technical ambition for all of our students.
Relationships are hugely important for all members of the school community. As a UNCRC gold award school, we promote and value children’s rights and are very proud of this work. Our commitment to developing empathy through the curriculum means that every students experience in school, is encapsulated by the four purposes. We expect all students to take responsibility for their behaviour choices and the attitudes to learning. Our determined commitment to securing a positive learning environment is built upon the philosophy of everyone being: Ready, Respectful and Safe.
Not only do we have unapologetically high expectations of our students, but the same applies to our staff. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is expected to be highly effective, enabling all students to make progress.
