Vision, Aims & Ethos


Our vision for the future of our school is to pursue high standards through a broad, engaging and holistic curriculum with an emphasis on developing pupils’ independence and creativity. We are fully committed to providing a safe and stimulating learning environment whereby pupils progress and reach their full potential. We will enable our pupils to learn through challenging and rich experiences, supporting them to become ambitious and creative learners. Pupils will develop highly effective essential skills such as literacy, numeracy, digital and higher order thinking skills; they will develop knowledge and understanding of key concepts and the personal attributes and dispositions to become life-long learners. Our aim is to ensure pupils become healthy, confident, resilient and socially adept with the ability to manage their own and others’ feelings and emotions effectively. We are committed to ensuring diversity across the school is valued and celebrated and to developing our pupils as ethical and informed citizens. It is our responsibility as adults to model effective learning and behaviours for our pupils in an inclusive, nurturing way so that they can develop the four purposes and contribute successfully to their community, society and the wider world.


‘All pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are exceptionally polite and respectful towards each other and to adults. They are at ease in the company of visitors and they communicate their immense pride in their school and its collective achievements with warmth and gusto’. (ESTYN 2018) Tywyn is an English medium co-educational primary school. Through careful organisation, the school attempts to give to the children what is best in education. In all our activities we aim to work as a team, where members have a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging and a feeling of being responsible to the school and its community. We aim to provide work each day that is balanced, varied and suitable to the child’s ability and development. These experiences will help each child to learn and to become self-reliant and responsible members
of the community. We strive to create a happy, caring environment with an emphasis on making learning fun where positive relationships are seen as being vital to our success. Home School Agreements have been signed by the school, parents and pupils. This agreement outlines what is expected by each party and focuses mainly on ensuring our school is a warm and caring place where children feel valued and
happy and are always encouraged to do their best. Every opportunity promotes our ethos of :
“Education for All!” / “Addysg i bawb!”

We are very proud of the inclusive education we provide for a wide range of pupils at Tywyn.  In the firmly held belief that attitude towards others is as important as personal and academic achievement the Headteacher and staff are consistent in their view that children should always treat others as they wish to be treated themselves, should always respect the property and belongings of others, should always work hard and do their best and should strive for personal improvement every day.

 As parents you are vitally important partners in this development and as such are always welcome at the school both in support of the learning process and to develop sound relationships between family, teacher and child.  The purpose of Primary Education is to lay strong foundations for the future.  Between us I am sure we can achieve that for all our children.
