Ysgol Gynradd Gymunedol Nantgaredig



Nantgaredig is a happy school. The teachers and support staff are all hardworking and conscientious and have a wonderful relationship with the pupils.

We pride ourselves on the broad, balanced and full curriculum we offer, the high standards of teaching and learning and the effective working relationship with parents and the local community.

Welsh is obviously an integral component of our school. It’s the main language of lessons, the language of the school community as a whole and we also focus on our rich culture as part of our school curriculum.

We value our pupils and believe that their time in school should be rewarding and fulfilling.

‘Ysgol Gynradd Nantgaredig is a happy and homely school. All staff work together effectively to create a caring, Welsh, and inclusive ethos. The additional learning centres are an integral part of the school’s life and all pupils benefit from the rich experiences that come from working with each other. Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes to learning are a strong feature of the school. Pupils have a strong voice in the school’s life and are given regular opportunities to question staff and influence decisions. The pupil’s voice, ‘Nantlais’, is an effective means of including pupils’ ideas in the school’s themes. They celebrate their successes and the fact that everyone is different and important.’ – Estyn Inspection report March 2022

The school handbook can be found in the ‘Documents’ section of the website.

Our aim is to ensure that Nantgaredig school pupils are happy and safe in order to learn.
