Our Vision


'Roots to Grow, Wings to Fly'


Wellbeing is at the very heart of everything we do at Coed Glas. We will provide a safe and inclusive environment where everyone will be welcomed, celebrated and can thrive. We will ensure a culture of mutual respect and acceptance, where each child is nurtured and supported as they grow into grounded, compassionate individuals with open eyes and kind hearts.


We believe in the power of values and will empower our children to fulfil their potential as kind and respectful members of the community. We will lead by example and encourage each other to make a positive difference.


We will inspire and motivate our children by developing a contemporary and relevant curriculum, fostering a lifelong love of learning and self development . We will ensure our learning environments are places which inspire curiosity and creativity, where a growth mindset is encouraged and where staff are highly skilled in supporting all children.


Quite simply, everything we do is designed to serve the needs of our children, our colleagues and our community.



Our Aims

Our aim is to create an outstanding school. We measure only what we value ensuring that our values and vision drive all that we do.

To this end, we have our ‘Big 6’. They very much reflect our model of school improvement and are central to the way we operate. This helps us come to a shared and common understanding of what an outstanding school looks like.

  1. All children want to come to school, are safe, nurtured and enjoy learning;
  2. Learning is real, purposeful and engaging for every child;
  3. Teaching is excellent and all children thrive and progress well;
  4. Our core values are embedded at all levels within a culture of continual improvement;
  5. Wellbeing and mental health are a high priority with all staff and children feeling valued, supported and engaged;
  6. The school makes a real difference to our families, working together within a culture of mutual respect and support.


Our core values – ‘Doing good as we go’

Coed Glas Primary school is a community united in providing all our children with ‘roots to grow and wings to fly.’  We strongly believe that this vision is the driving force each and every day.  We want all our children to develop strong ‘roots’ for learning, behaviour and wellbeing.  We will create opportunities for all of our children to develop their ‘wings’ of resilience, creativity, independence, confidence and an enjoyment of learning.

So that we can fulfil our vision, we have a number of core values that drive all that we do. These serve as our guiding principles that help us navigate and should be nurtured for their own sake. We believe that our values stand the test of time and allow us to stay true to our purpose.


Belonging - We listen and care in a culture of warmth and understanding where everyone is welcome and respected. We value each other’s contributions and show our appreciation readily.


Excellence - We are passionate about transforming the lives of all our children. We refuse to accept anything less than the best for our school and our pupils.


Collaboration - We work and play as a team to inspire, motivate, learn from, support and challenge each another, always seeking to improve.


Innovation - We embrace change for the better through innovation, professional learning, creativity and a collective 'growth mindset'.


Integrity - We act ethically, demonstrating our commitment to fairness, kindness, honesty and treating others well.
