Welcome from the Headteacher - Mrs S Coombes

It is our aims to make learning irresistible and ensure that all our children, on leaving Llanishen Fach, are equipped with the essential transferrable skills required to enable them to become fulfilled lifelong learners.


To this end, our highly motivated professional staff have embraced the Welsh Government’s ‘Successful Futures’ report and placed the ‘four key purposes’ at the heart of all that we do, with the aspiration that all our pupils becoming:


  • Ambitious, capable learners
  • Enterprising, creative contributors
  • Ethical, informed citizens
  • Healthy, confident individuals


As you will see, as you navigate our school’s website, we continue to develop and refine our learning and teaching approach, challenging ourselves and our pupils through the development of a rich and engaging curriculum. We use a combination of class teachers and specialist teachers to provide first-hand experiences, in particular the outdoors, to promote improved levels of wider skills, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving. We believe that our determination to invest time and resources, while keeping literacy and numeracy at the heart of our teaching, ensures skills are widely practised and applied across the whole curriculum.


At Llanishen Fach we are a family school and we see our pupils, parents, governors and the wider community as key members of that family. As Headteacher, I am always happy to meet with parents to discuss any queries that you may have with any aspect of school life. Simply telephone the school to arrange an appointment.
