A very warm welcome to Maes yr Haul Primary School.
We are an English medium community school catering for pupils aged from 3 to 11 years of age. The children, staff, governors and community are proud of our happy, caring and successful school where the needs of all children is paramount. We pride ourselves on ensuring that all our learners access a broad and balanced curriculum and promote the values which develop our pupils as responsible caring individuals. This is reflected in our motto, ‘Growing together, learning forever’.
Maes yr Haul Primary School was built to serve the Broadlands estate on the outskirts of Bridgend, South Wales and has grown significantly in size since that time. We have around 500-520 pupils on role, including a large Nursery unit and 17 classes for pupils ranging from Reception to Year 6. Most year groups consist of either two classes or two classes and a mixed-age class.
Maes yr Haul strives to achieve its aims through a strong partnership between the school and our community, businesses and a wide range of other partners. We are a lead network school for the ‘Yr Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership’, playing a central role in training student primary teachers across Bridgend. We also work in close partnership with Central South Consortium as an expressive arts lead practitioner school, providing CPD for professionals across the region. The school is well supported by a strong, committed governing body and an enthusiastic ‘Parents and Friends Association’ who all do their utmost to ensure that our pupils have the best opportunities possible throughout their time with us at Maes yr Haul.
We have an excellent team of staff who work well together to ensure that all pupils enjoy an excellent range of high-quality, tailored learning experiences in school. Maes yr Haul has achieved much during its first 20 years and is recognised as a dynamic place where learning is exciting and stimulating. We have repeatedly been categorised as a ‘green’ school by the Welsh Government and continue to have high aspirations and expectations for our pupils in terms of their wellbeing, behaviour, engagement and achievement.
I hope that you will find all of the information you are looking for here and that the website will give you an insight into the life at our wonderful school.
