Welcome to Ysgol Gynradd Gymunedol T Llew Jones’ website. The purpose of this websiteis to welcome your child and yourself and to present the school’s aims and objectives. Within the pages of this website there is information to ensure that the school runs efficiently and that your child settles well and enjoys their time with us at the school.
Education is a three way process between your child, you as Parents and us as a school. Your part in this is extremely important if we are to ensure that your child is to benefit fully from the varied experiences we present as a school. We cannot over emphasise the importance of the support given at home to ensure the best education for your child.
If you have any questions about your child’s development please don’t hesitate in contacting the school.

Our school is situated in the rural village of Brynhoffnant in the county of Ceredigion, and serves the village and the communities of Glynarthen, Rhydlewis, Pontgarreg, Blaenporth and Penmorfa. The school admits pupils on a part-time basis to the Nursery class in the term following their third birthday and on a full-time basis to the reception class in the term following their fourth birthday.
The school is designated as a Welsh-medium school in accordance with the Education Authority’s language policy. This means that Welsh is the main medium of the life and work of the school and seeks to ensure that pupils are fully bilingual by the time they transfer to the secondary sector.
