To pupils, parents & carers,
We hope you see this site as an extension of our school; one that you can visit whenever you want for information or simply to show us off to your friends. To those of you we don’t yet know, we hope you‘ll find it worth your while to have a good look around & find out more about us!
Lamphey Primary School is situated in the heart of rural Pembrokeshire close to the historical town of Pembroke. Pupils attend the school from a wide area within Pembrokeshire with the catchment of the school including Lamphey, Freshwater East, Hodgeston and East Trewent. The school is in the centre of the village and enjoys an extremely positive, friendly and welcoming ethos providing quality education for everyone.
There are just over 200 pupils aged between three and eleven in the school with most pupils organised into seven singled-aged classes from four to eleven years. In addition, a part-time Nursery class forms part of the Early Years Unit.
The school’s mission statement is Children First – Plant Yn Gyntaf. This simple statement ensures that in whatever we do we consider the child first. This approach I believe enables all the children at the school to achieve academically but more importantly to enlarge their knowledge, experiences and skills ensuring that they become cooperative children who are happy, cheerful, enthusiastic, keen on school and eager to succeed.
Outdoor learning is very important to our ethos at Lamphey Primary School. We were one of the first Pembrokeshire Outdoor School and all pupils regularly take part in amazing outdoor learning experiences to enhance their learning. Our large school grounds are used to promote our outdoor and active learning philosophy.
Health and well being of all is central to what we do at our school. I believe that children who are happy, engaged and well-motivated succeed. This philosophy has been identified by the Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes as the school received its highest level of award.
‘Mental and emotional health and well being is paramount and the basis for pupils to achieve challenging targets in their academic life; in this school, it under pins the ethos of all activities.’
I am proud of the children and staff of the school and it is a privilege to work in such a wonderful school.
