Parcyrhun School is situated in the outskirts of the town of Ammanford in Carmarthenshire.
The school which opened in 1909 is a Category A/B school, a school which has both Welsh and English streams. There are approximately 195 pupils on roll in mixed ability classes. A Resource Base for the Hearing Impaired was established at the school in 2004.
There are 9 classrooms accommodating the local Cylch Meithrin and 8 mainstream classes. An additional classroom on the school yard is used by the Resource Base for the Hearing Impaired. We have a school hall which lies at the heart of school life at Parcyrhun. This is where we meet for assemblies, dinner, P.E. lessons, Breakfast and After School Clubs and extra– curricular activities!
Parcyrhun School has a friendly, hard- working staff team. Each member of the teaching staff has responsibilities for areas of the curriculum. The school is committed to continued professional development to enable all staff to carry out their roles effectively. In addition to the teaching staff there are many classroom assistants who provide valuable support.
Approximately 36% of the children are on the ALN register and receive additional support as appropriate.
The school is also well served by a full time school clerk and four mid-day supervisors.
We take an active part in the area’s sports fixtures and our extra- curricular activities include a Dragon Sports Club, gardening club, cooking club, Urdd club, school choir, computer club, signing club and reading club.
Parent helpers are welcomed into school and help with reading, gardening ‘Kerbcraft’ etc. We have an active Parent-Teachers’ Association which meets regularly. The PTA has provided many ‘extras’ for the benefit of the children. School governors take an active interest in the children and school and visit regularly.
