About Aberbargoed Primary School

Aberbargoed Primary School caters for the educational needs of boys and girls aged from three to eleven. We are an English medium community school seeking to develop our provision for all learners including adults through collaborative work with our associate schools and other agencies.

The School was opened in September 2002 by Caerphilly County Borough Council whose Chief Education Officer  is Mrs Keri Cole, Directorate of Education And Leisure.

From 2002 until 2012 the school operated on two sites. However the School is now situated on a single site at Heol Ysgol Newydd. The original building was built in 1996 to accommodate the Junior School and extended in 2012 to accommodate all of the Key Stage Two and Foundation Phase children.

The School is managed by the Headteacher and members of the Governing Body who have been elected or appointed as representatives of the local education authority, parents, staff, local business and the local community. A complete list of Governors is enclosed in this Prospectus.

Aberbargoed Primary School is fortunate to have a large number of spacious class rooms. Eight of these are used for the day to day teaching and learning which goes on at the School. Each of the classroom areas is served by a shared work space area, cloakroom area and separate toilet facilities for boys and girls. There are additional facilities for adults and the disabled if required

The School has a spacious Hall which is used for a wide range of activities including Physical Education, Assembly, Concerts and Dining.

In addition to the information contained in this Prospectus the School has a number of school policies in place. Parents/carers and other interested parties are able look at completed policies by prior arrangement with the Headteacher.
