Information about the school

Langafel is a friendly, supportive, nurturing and inclusive primary school. Aspiration, confidence, perseverance, respect, enjoyment, honesty, teamwork and Koinonia are our values. We currently have two Reception Classes who work in a large inside and outside area with a flexible open plan space. Children in Key Stages 1 and 2 are taught in mixed-age classes allowing the perfect opportunity for collaborative learning and teaching. Our facilities are the envy of all other local schools and include a gym, swimming pool, performing arts room, kitchen, an extensive field and woodland area.

The school's specialist resourced provision, known in the school community as SLIC (Socialise Learn Interact Communicate) is for pupils with an EHCP who are diagnosed with autism. SLIC is made up of 4 classes, with children working across the primary age range, where appropriate pupils are supported to attend mainstream lessons. The pupils from the SRP make use of the wonderful facilities within the mainstream. Additionally, within the provision the pupils benefit from four large well-resourced classrooms, speech and language rooms and a sensory room. They also have access to their own contained outside spaces, including a playground with sensory apparatus and a well-equipped enclosed area on the school field.
