Welcome to Gwyn Jones Primary School...
At Gwyn Jones we welcome children into our warm and friendly two-form entry school. As part of a vibrant multi-cultural community we continually strive to provide the very best education and experience for all.
To achieve this aim we provide a broad range of stimulating activities, spanning beyond the school day. While effective teaching is central to the aims of the school we also ensure that our children’s development is broad. Please take the time to look through this website to see the ways that children enjoy their learning here.
The success of the school and the children depends on an effective partnership between school and home. This website is intended to develop this interaction still further. In it you will find information, pictures and newsletters.
If you are looking for a school for your child we would be very happy to meet you. Feel free to contact the school office to arrange a visit, or for any further information.

Notice to parents concerning OFSTED inspection...
Dear parent or carer
Inspection of Gwyn Jones Primary School by Ofsted
We have just told your child's school that we will inspect it on 25 – 26 June 2014. The lead inspector will be John Sweet. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an inspection.
Your views about the school are important to us
If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child's school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child's school.
To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.
Please complete the online survey by 11am on 26 June 2014 or earlier, if possible, so that the inspection team has sufficient time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection. Should you wish to provide written comments these should be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.
Speaking to an inspector
If you are unable to complete the online survey, it may be possible to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person. Inspection administrators will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. If concerns are raised about child protection, we may have to pass the information we receive to social services or the police. You can contact the administrators on 0117 3115307. Inspectors will be pleased to receive your comments, but cannot deal with complaints about individual pupils or settle disputes between you and the school.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the online survey.
What Gwyn Jones Means To Me
The School Council and Mrs Clark were involved in an exciting project creating a short film with Jez Lee (Safia's dad). The School Council decided what areas of the school and activities needed to be filmed and created storyboards showing their ideas.
The School had a competition called "What Gwyn Jones means to me" and 7 winners were picked and filmed saying what the school meant to them. It snowed on the day of the filming and so some of the filming ideas needed to be changed but we all had lots of fun!
