May I offer you a very warm welcome to our school
The school is a mixed primary school between the ages of 3 and 11. The school is organised into fourteen classes, some of mixed ability. English is the main medium of instruction within the school, with Welsh taught as a second language across all ages and ability ranges.
The school welcomes visits and suggestions by parents and as Headteacher I shall look forward to seeing you at the school. It would be appreciated if you could make an appointment beforehand, as there are certain times when it is inconvenient for me to see visitors as I will be with children. I would also be grateful if any parents makes unannounced visit to school for nay reason that they report to the office on arrival.
On behalf of the staff and governors, may I warmly welcome you to Ty Sign Primary School, and wish you and your child a happy and successful time with us.
Mrs A Dacey
