“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.”

Art & Design

Art is highly valued at Llangrove and whilst skills and techniques are taught specifically, art is integrated across the curriculum and is reflected in many subjects. Children have the opportunity to experience the key elements including colour, shape, texture, pattern and line, in both 2D and 3D form with reference to past and present day artists as well as engaging with practitioners through HMFA schools’ shared workshops. Children are encouraged to develop individuality and critical awareness through their artwork which is displayed around the school as part of creating a stimulating learning environment. Our artwork is also often shared with the village community as part of the local church and village hall festivals.
