“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.”

Links with our Community

The school continues to maintain strong links with the local community, including the school hall being available for lettings to groups within the community.
The children are actively involved in fundraising for the wider community; examples of charities supported are: Macmillan Cancer Care; Poppy Appeal; Barnardos; Acorns Hospice; Christmas Shoebox appeal; Children in Need and Red Nose Day.
The school liaises closely with secondary schools both in Ross and Monmouth and Year 6 pupils take part in transition visits. We also have close links with Llangrove Leapfrogs, the local pre-school playgroup, who are based on the school premises.

PTFA

Llangrove Academy has a proactive PTFA which is extremely well supported by hardworking, energetic committee members and generous parents, governors and friends.
The PTFA willingly help at events and support our activities throughout the year; this reflects the friendly and inclusive ethos of our school, they raise around £2,500 annually to fund school activities and equipment. The PTFA also provides valuable social opportunities for those in our school community to meet and have fun. Everyone is welcome to participate (all school families are automatically members) and creative minds are welcomed to dream up new fundraising ideas and to help decide how best to spend the money the PTFA makes. Regular posters and flyers and updates on the school website enables the PTFA to keep in touch with all those involved with the school. Recent projects which have been funded by the PTFA include subsidising transport for trips and swimming lessons, providing class dictionaries and thesauruses, trips to Christmas pantomime costs and Christmas party gifts.

Further information is posted on the PTFA noticeboard next to the school entrance gate.

Visitors

We welcome offers of help from parents or carers and friends who have special interests which would appeal to the children. Volunteers may help in a variety of ways, such as reading, Art and DT work and cooking. It is a governors’ policy following statutory guidance that all people working with children are checked using rigorous Safeguarding Children and Child Protection procedures.
