Croeso! Welcome!

Croeso cynnes iawn i Ysgol Iau Mount Street. A warm welcome to Mount Street Junior School.

It is very important to us that all children enjoy their experience in school and are involved in decisions about their own learning and how to improve the school. As there are a number of different nationalities in our school community, we have an inclusive and caring ethos where we place relationships at the heart of our everyday practice.

The well being of young people is fundamental in them achieving the highest standards.

We are an open and approachable school and we believe that communication with pupils, parents / carers and all stakeholders should be regular and respectful.

In addition, we have high expectations regarding standards of work and behaviour.

We are a reflective school and always try to resolve any difficulties calmly. We recognise that school can be a challenge for many young people, therefore, we aim to develop resilience in our children and give them the life skills they need in order for them to evolve fully as individuals.

The school is set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and we use the historic town of Brecon as a natural resource to engage our pupils. We aim to develop learners as informed citizens in learning about the environment and their understanding of sustainability in the local area and beyond.

We also recognise the unique qualities of Wales and our position in the world. We promote the use of the Welsh language on a daily basis.

We endeavour to provide as many experiences for our pupils as we can. This includes music, culture, craft and sports, as well as academic studies in order that their talents can flourish in becoming life long learners.

Our school rules are : Ready, Respectful, Safe.

Diolch yn Fawr
