Gwyrosydd Primary School is situated in the East side of Swansea and serves the Treboeth and Penlan communities. It was created in 2005 following the amalgamation of the previous Gwyrosydd Infant and Junior Schools and in Autumn 2013 an Autistic Spectrum Disorder Specialist Teaching Facility (ASD STF) was opened at the school. The pupils themselves are a strength of the school in that they bring a rich variety of skills, abilities, attributes and needs. They are the lifeblood of the school and without them we could not achieve the things we do as a school. They achieve in different fields from academic abilities to the sporting field and from creative thinking and opportunism to music and drama. They all add to the rich tapestry that is Gwyrosydd and without their wants, needs, drive, enthusiasm and on times “cheeky opportunism” Gwyrosydd would not be the colourful place that it is. The School is wholeheartedly committed to the UNCRC and this underpins what we do. The school Achieved Level 2 of the RRSA award in 2011. Together with positive behaviour strategies learned form training with Bill Rogers and aspects of restorative practice this has had a very positive effect on the ethos of our school. Our school has established its own unique identity with its own priorities, values and ethos. It is our overarching aim to meet the needs of our pupils, educationally, emotionally and socially, helping them to forge strong foundations on which they can build the rest of their lives. The Personal, Social and Emotional development and understanding of our pupils is of paramount importance to us. By understanding their feelings and developing a sense of well-being and self-confidence pupils are able to lead happier and more fulfilling lives, enabling them to become good citizens. Our school is founded on an inclusive, healthy and safe learning environment where children’s naturally inquisitive nature, their enthusiasm to investigate and their eagerness to learn where learning is fun, is used to provide them with opportunities to prosper and achieve. Our school strives to provide for their needs and celebrate their achievements and help them fulfil their potential. Our school community is built on mutual respect as we firmly believe that by encouraging respect for others and ourselves, children develop caring attitudes that will help them to be successful in their later lives. Our school listens to and meet the aspirations and expectations of its partners and stakeholders, working closely with parents, the LEA, local businesses, the community and other schools. Our school works in close partnership with parents encouraging them to take a full and active part in the life of the school and their child’s education.
