“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.”

Our Creative Curriculum

Creative Curriculum

Our curriculum is a continually evolving blend of learning experiences, designed to develop the fundamental skills, which children need to succeed. The school curriculum is aimed to be relevant, interesting and engaging. A broad, balanced and relevant skills based education is offered to all the pupils, providing a wide range of experiences to meet their personalised needs. The core subjects and foundation subjects are all taught through a cross-curricular approach where it enhances learning or as discrete subjects.

The children are fully involved in the planning of new topics – with their key questions directly linked to the national curriculum. Each topic has an ‘entry’, where children are introduced to the new theme, and an ‘exit’ point, when the children have an opportunity to share their work with the rest of the school and parents.

Opportunities are also provided for the children to work collaboratively with children from others schools within the HMFA.

The school meets the requirements of the National Curriculum. The curriculum for Reception pupils is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage.
