Welcome

Our Aims & Ethos

At Trelewis Primary School, we follow the Welsh Government Curriculum for Wales in order to deliver and establish rich and engaging learning experiences for our Pupils. As a school we aim to promote a broad and balanced curriculum which allows Pupils to learn and develop their personal skills and qualities, through 6 key areas of learning and experience. These 6 areas are:

 

  1. Languages, Literacy and Communication
  2. Mathematics and Numeracy
  3. Science and Technology
  4. Humanities
  5. Expressive Arts
  6. Health and Wellbeing

 

Whilst your child is with us at Trelewis Primary School, our aim is that they will develop a wide range of knowledge and understanding from the various areas they explore and that, during their time with us they will develop skills that will set them up for life. Within the school we have established our 'Curriculum Vision' which outlines our expectations of what we want pupils to achieve from learning through our Curriculum. Our Curriculum Vision can be found within our School Prospectus. 

At Trelewis Primary School our Curriculum is not only those skills which we deliver in classrooms, but our Curriculum encapsulates our whole school ethos. We believe that our Curriculum is not only something that Pupils experience within the classroom but that our Pupils learn a great amount from the wider school environment. We pride ourselves on holding a clear set of aims, which we want to embed for every pupil. These aims are built on the 4 core purposes for education and are;

 

  • To embed the "Rights of the Child" within the school;
  • To provide caring and friendly surroundings where pupils will be happy, safe and secure;
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle;
