Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to our school website!

I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Miskin Primary School

At Miskin we always strive to be ‘Marvellous!’

Miskin Primary School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

At Miskin Primary School we aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment which enables each and every child to reach his/her full potential by:

Working as a team comprising children, staff, parents, governors, outside agencies and visitors

Valuing the contribution of each individual within that team

Providing a broad varied curriculum planned to suit the individual child yet within the National Curriculum framework

Promoting justice and good standards of behaviour and discipline

Showing and encouraging respect and tolerance for the school community as well as each other

Promoting equality of opportunity regardless of race, religion, gender, social background or ability

Promoting links with other schools as well as the local and wider community

Recognising needs and nurturing strengths

We want our pupils to:

be confident and at ease with themselves and others

become independent, self disciplined and self motivated

have respect for themselves, each other and the environment

be keen to learn and able to set, and achieve, realistic goals of a high standard

be valued as an individual and as a supportive member of the community, both within the school and beyond

become literate, numerate, communicative, creative and co-operative

develop a love of learning that they carry forward in life

We take the well-being of our pupils very seriously. We deliver support in all classes as well as providing additional sessions in our dedicated PERMA and Thrive areas of the school and our fully trained ELSA staff are here to support pupils whenever they need it. We have an open door policy for parents and carers and aim to support in any way we can, working together for the benefit of your child. We have been successfully accredited with our Investors in Families status as well as the lockdown award.

We have a vibrant School Council as well as Digital Leaders and an active Eco Council who received four Green Flags award and are working towards Platinum award. We have a gold standard tooth brushing award for all pupils and we are also Healthy Schools accredited.

We continue to evolve  outdoor learning spaces for our pupils to enrich their learning. We have linked with the Arts Council of Wales as a Lead Creative School as well as the woodland trust. We have exciting and innovative space to maximise learning potential.

Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools we work with. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home, school and community, we regard all being active partners in our pupil’s education and value all interest and support.

Each Autumn and Spring term we have parents’/consultations where we will discuss your child’s achievements and progress. In February you will receive an interim progress report with target areas for your child to develop and at the end of the summer term we will send you a written report summing up the progress of the year. If, however, you wish to talk about worries you have at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities we provide.  Please check us out on Facebook and Twitter, though these cannot better coming for a visit!

Please feel free to pop in and chat to us or give us a call should you require any further information.

We look forward to meeting you.
