‘Welcome from the Headteacher’

Croeso cynnes! On behalf of myself, the governors, staff and pupils of Builth Wells Primary I would like to welcome you to our school. Our motto is “Cyd-ddysgwn, Cydlwyddwn / Together We Learn, Together We Achieve” which underpins our commitment and dedication to providing an excellent education for the children in our community.

We are a dual-stream school, committed to ensuring our children have an excellent appreciation of Wales, its culture and heritage. Currently, around half of our pupils learn primarily through the medium of Welsh in the Welsh Stream (Ffrwd Cymraeg), and around half learn mainly through the medium of English and learn Welsh as a second language.

The purpose of this website is to provide an interesting insight into our school, to convey important information, and to showcase some the excellent work produced by pupils and staff.

Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important. We all want the very best education for our children, but we also want our children to be safe, happy and to feel secure. We believe we offer all these things. We aim to challenge pupils to be the best that they can be but we are equally proud of our caring, happy and friendly school ethos.

We place great emphasis on developing a strong partnership between home and school, as it is through working together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support that we can provide what is best for our children, in order that they may be happy, enriched and fulfil their potential.

I believe we are an extremely effective school and all the staff are committed to preparing your child for a lifelong journey of discovery and learning.

If you have any queries about any aspect of school life, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
