“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.”

Governing Body

Llangrove is fortunate in having a dedicated group of Governors, a combination of appointed and elected members. The foundation governors are appointed by the local church and the Board of Education to preserve and develop the religious character of the schools and to secure compliance with the Trust Deed. They represent the interests of the church, foundation or other organisation connected with the school and should include parents. The foundation governors are a majority on the governing body. Our Chair of Governors is Mrs Bobby Woodcock.

Welcome from Christ Church

We are pleased to commend our school to you in this foreword. The school has a rural catchment area that encompasses a number of villages, parishes and worship centres. In Llangrove itself, we continue to build on and reinforce the strong links that exist between the school and the church community on every level. The school values the children and their development through education, physical activity and social skills, equipping them to take a positive role in society, as it also values the development of those who guide, lead and teach our children. The education and development of the children is held in a loving, caring Christian environment which has at the core the Christian message, the Christian values and ethos, as well as respecting people of other faiths and those with none.
Our role is to be a supporter of the children, parents, the staff, the leadership team and the Governors in spiritual and pastoral matters.

Welcome from the Chair of Governors

The village of Llangrove provides an idyllic setting for the learning and development of children, and there has been a church school here since 1875. The school sits within a safe setting, and our excellent staff are committed to the academic, physical, moral, Christian and personal development of all children. In order to meet the needs of all pupils we offer a creative curriculum, individual support and lessons that pupils themselves class as being interesting and fun. Our recent Ofsted report highlighted the outstanding behaviour of our pupils, and their desire to work hard and take pride in their achievements. Co-operation is enhanced through peer support at lunchtime, break time games, imaginative play and adventure in our forest school areas. We enjoy strong community links and Leapfrogs pre-school group share our site. This ensures that very young children are well prepared for school, and in addition, Leapfrogs also offer extended care and play before and after school. We pride ourselves on the good relationships we have with our parents, and our most recent parent survey confirmed that parents greatly value the work that the school does with their children. Llangrove Parent, Teacher and Friends Association are very active organising additional activities for our pupils. Throughout the year we undertake fundraising activities for national charities. We sincerely encourage you to come and see this lovely, happy school so that you can experience what the pupils and school achieves on a daily basis. As our recent Ofsted report concluded this is a good school, and one we are all justly proud of.
