“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Aims and Ethos

Our School Ethos Statement
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at Parish and Diocesan level.

The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.

Our aim at Llangrove CE Academy is to give all pupils the opportunity to fulfil their potential by providing the encouragement, stimulation and learning environment necessary, and to work together with pupils and parents to ensure that each child leaving our school is as well-equipped as he or she possibly can be to succeed in later life.

We are a Church of England Aided School and Christian values provide a framework for the day to day life of the school. We aim to ensure that the school provides purposeful, effective education in a happy and stimulating environment where the children feel secure and comfortable within a caring, family atmosphere. Children are helped and encouraged to make positive contribution to all aspects of school life, to develop individual interest and to recognise the abilities and needs of others as caring citizens within the school and the wider community.

Partnerships

Parent Partnerships
We believe in the importance of strong home/school links and we are committed to fostering excellent relationships with parents and carers. A close partnership between home and school will ensure children have a happy time at Llangrove and that pupils fulfil their full potential. A Home/School Agreement is in place which outlines the role that parents and carers play in their child’s learning and development.

Llangrove is a member of Activate Education Ltd, a network of Herefordshire Primary schools & academies who design their own programme of Continuing Professional Development for staff using national speakers and consultants to ensure we deliver cutting edge, world class primary education for our children.
