On behalf of all the Staff and Governors, I would like to welcome you to the Ysgol Glan Gele website.
Ysgol Glan Gele is a Nursery and Infant school which serves the thriving market town of Abergele. We provide Foundation Phase education for children from the ages of 3 to 7. We believe that this is an important phase in their learning journey and is at the centre of their future development. We are a busy school but pride ourselves on the quality of teaching and learning and high expectations for all.
‘Gorau cam, cam cyntaf’ are special words which recognise the importance of a quality Foundation Phase Education.
Our school is situated on Ffordd y Morfa on the same campus as our feeder Junior school St Elfod.
At Ysgol Glan Gele we work very hard to make our school a creative, happy place for your child to flourish and grow. We aim to deliver experiential learning that develops all their skills and equips them for life in the twenty first century and the next stage in their education. The school is known within Abergele for its warm and friendly family atmosphere where children feel valued and secure. Our school motto is
‘Happy and secure as we all learn together’
We provide additional support for pupils who are more and less able. We are an inclusive school and work with other local schools and agencies to ensure the highest standard of provision for all our pupils. Your child’s talents and achievements are as important to us as they are to you and are celebrated by the whole school community at every opportunity, in class or during Golden Assembly.
We recognise, the partnership between home and school is a vital one and we appreciate parents, carers and the community in Abergele working together with us.We have an active Parents' Forum which was established in 2007. We endeavour to support our pupils to grow into valuable citizens of the Abergele.
We welcome any expertise or assistance you maybe able to offer us in delivering the best possible opportunities for our pupils.
If you would like to come and join us by helping out in classes or supporting the PTA (Friends of Glan Gele Infants - FOGGI) in their fund raising events we would be only too pleased to see you. Please telephone the school for more information. We also provide a Breakfast Club which you may like to use as well as various Extra Curricular After School clubs.
Thank you for your interest in our school - we are very proud of all our children and staff! If you would like to visit the school or would like to ask any questions please telephone for an informal chat.
