It is an honour and a privilege to welcome you to the Ysgol Caer Elen school website. We are embracing the challenge of establishing and developing one of Pembrokeshire’s first 3-16 schools. The establishment of Ysgol Caer Elen is a celebration of the success of Welsh-medium education in the county. Our aim is to develop a pioneering 3-16 school which will deliver Welsh-medium education of the highest quality in partnership with the feeder primary schools and Ysgol y Preseli.
We believe in preparing pupils by developing their skills and values in preparation for life beyond the classroom and in anticipation of facing the challenges of the 21st century.
We expect the highest possible standards from our pupils and we will do our utmost to give them every opportunity and guidance. The wide ranging and vibrant extra-curricular life of the school will be a notable feature of the school’s life and culture from the outset. We will celebrate our cultural and sporting achievements and take pride in the personal progress of all our pupils whatever their talents and interests.
One of the main strengths of our school is its caring, open and happy ethos where pupils feel at home and enjoy their education in a totally Welsh environment. One of our main aims is to make learning an exciting and pleasurable experience, mainly by ensuring that we use teaching and learning methods which are interesting and actively involve our pupils.
Every pupil is regarded as an individual who are important members of the ‘family’ of Ysgol Caer Elen. This fundamental principle of respecting each individual and placing the individual’s needs at the centre will form the basis of the school’s ethos, values and success.
We are confident that our pupils are proud of their new school, proud of their Welshness and their bilingualism, and are able to contribute to the multi-lingual and multi-cultural Wales, Europe and the World.
Mr Dafydd Hughes
