A welcome from the Headteacher, Mr Jon Murphy

On Behalf of all the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to the Llanfoist Fawr Primary School website.

Our school is sited at the base of the Blorenge mountain on the outskirts of the historic market town of Abergavenny.  At Llanfoist Fawr Primary School we believe that the primary phase of education is one of the most important in a child’s learning journey and at the centre of their future development.  It is a time when we aim to nurture in children a lifelong love of learning.  In leading children on this journey we pride ourselves on making the route fun, exciting and enjoyable. 

All involved at Llanfoist, work very hard to make our school a happy and creative place for the children to flourish and grow.  The school is known in Abergavenny for its warm friendly atmosphere where children feel valued and secure.

We strive to attain high educational standards.  In the Foundation Phase we deliver experiential learning, this skills based approach is extended into Key Stage 2 provision.  We treat all our children as individuals.  Additional support is provided for those who benefit from extra help as well as those who are more able. Our approach to education is to equip children for their next step of learning and for life in the 21st Century.

We recognise that the partnership between home and school is a crucial one and appreciate that the parents, carers and community in Llanfoist work together with us.  We support children in order that they will grow into valuable and proactive citizens of Llanfoist and the wider community.

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.
