Our School

Ein Hysgol

Griffithstown Primary School is nestled in the heart of the community.  A true hidden gem, the school is accessed at the end of Florence Place and opens to reveal a landscape of extensive playing fields bordered by the canal and fields of Panteg Cricket Grounds.

Griffithstown Primary School has the capacity for two classes per year group, each year group being organised in flexible learning environments. Outside there are dedicated areas for classes to access outdoor learning, a forest school area, two large fields and playgrounds. Indoors the hall has dividing doors to allow two activities to take place simultaneously. This provision allows for a variety of sporting and health/recreation activities for all children.

The school community serves children from the ages of 3 to 11 and has the capacity to provide places for 420 children, with a 60 place nursery which operates both morning and afternoon.

Our Mission, Vision and Aims

Inspire, Challenge, Achieve

Thank you to all children, parents, staff and governors who contributed to our new mission statement, vision and aims.  Our new mission, vision and aims will be the foundation and guide for all future school evaluations and improvement.


At Griffithstown Primary School, excellent teaching ensures that all learning is inspirational and challenging. We are a happy, safe and nurturing school, with excellent behaviour, attendance and punctuality. The opinions of children, parents, staff, governors, the community and other organisations are listened to and acted on in all aspects of school evaluation and improvement. Children develop and apply excellent literacy and numeracy skills across the whole curriculum; we are adaptable lifelong learners. Pupils make healthy choices and have active bodies and minds. Griffithstown Primary School is committed to equality and inclusion, and no one is disadvantaged by social or economic factors. Griffithstown Primary embraces the Welsh language and the heritage of Wales. We understand the diversity of modern Wales and our place in the wider world. Pupils understand the environmental challenges and are prepared for the technological opportunities of the 21st century.
