Ysgol Bro Famau aims to provide a caring, happy and respectful environment which allows pupils to realise their full potential, both academically and socially. Individual qualities such as independence of thought, self discipline and pride in one’s appearance and work are important and we also stress the importance of respect for others, team work and community spirit. This is reflected in our motto:
Caring and Sharing; Learning Together.
We aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and values to be responsible, well-rounded, caring members of not just our local society but of the world. Our children are encouraged to respect and value similarities and differences and to be curious about other communities, countries and beliefs.
We are a federated, twin site school, with units in Llanarmon yn Ial and in Llanferres. Since September 2015 the Foundation Phase is based at Llanferres and the Juniors are based at Llanarmon.
We are lucky to be situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ in the Clwydian hills in the county of Denbighshire. The school serves a wide rural community including Llanferres, Llanarmon, Tafarn-y-Gelyn, Maes Hafn, Graianrhyd and Eryrys.
We are very proud of our caring and sharing ethos and believe we provide an excellent education with strong links to our local communities. We have high expectations of the children in our care and we aim to provide them with the best possible start to their school lives. We believe that we can do this best when close partnership and co-operation is built between home and school. Parents are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of school life.
