Ysgol Gynradd Penygawsi

Primary School


Joining our school is controlled by Rhondda Cynon Taf ‘Admissions’ Authority’.


If your child is nearing the age of 3, you have moved into our catchment area or you have heard about our school and would like your child to join us, further information can be found by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.


Children are admitted into the Nursery class in September of the school year in which they reach their fourth birthday, on a full-time basis. A letter is sent from the local authority to the parents of the children who are eligible for a Nursery place during the summer term, offering them a place in our Nursery class. During the summer term prior to starting school, each child is given the opportunity of visiting the school in order to meet the Nursery teacher and Nursery teaching assistants.  There will also be a meeting for parents to give them some idea of how the Nursery is run and to help the child make the transition from home to school.


Admission to the Nursery class will take place each September.


Parents are asked to 'register' their children with the Local authority prior to the September in which they wish to be admitted.   


Children from our Nursery class are required to reapply for a place through the local authority for a place in our Reception class.


Pre Nursery

The school does accept children in the month of January for those children turning three between September and December and after Easter for those turning three between January and April.  This would depend on the current numbers in the existing nursery class.


 The school has no involvement in the admissions process.


Thank you for being interested in Penygawsi Primary School.
