St. Ethelwold’s

At St.Ethelwold’s Church in Wales Aided Primary School we provide a safe and nurturing environment where each and every child is encouraged to reach their full potential. We believe that the happier the child, the more they will learn and therefore strive not only to equip children academically for the next stage of their lives, but to equip them with social skills and Christian Values that will allow them to become active and valued members of their local community and wider society .

Parents Survey

Each year we gather the views of parents, carers and children. This gives us an idea of what we are doing well and what we may need to work on in the future.

Your views are very important to us, not only do we take them seriously but we also endeavour to act upon them and in doing so, make the school a better place.
