We are a happy, friendly primary school with a caring and inclusive ethos. We are situated in the centre of Port Talbot between the Rivers Afan and Ffrwdwyllt.  We are unique as we have two very different, yet highly distinctive sites. We firmly believe in working ‘hand in hand’ with our families and we always aim to offer our children the very best primary experience.

Our website keeps families, prospective families and friends of the school in touch with what is going on at our school.

May I take this opportunity to warmly welcome both new and current families alike to our happy, successful primary school. It is a privilege that we have the unique opportunity to provide your child with the very best education they deserve. We recognise that a child’s education is a ‘once in a lifetime’ chance which we aim to make as fun and successful as possible.

All of our pupils deserve a safe, secure and stimulating environment, where they are interested and motivated to learn. Our pupils are given every opportunity to develop an enthusiasm for learning – about themselves, their friends and the world around them in an environment where their natural development can be fostered. At Central Primary School, our pupils experience a stimulating curriculum that is holistic and one which recognises their wider range of achievements.

It is our responsibility to ensure each and every pupil is equipped with ‘life-long’ skills which will prepare them to face the 21st century with independence, confidence and success. Our pupils are given a wealth of opportunities where their full potential is recognised and actively developed. They know that their efforts are valued, and they are always respected and treated fairly. Our pupils are encouraged to believe in themselves; they are supported whilst achieving their goals and this empowers them to succeed in their ambitions.

Our motto ‘Hand in hand we believe and achieve’ is embedded in our philosophy and permeates our whole school ethos on a daily basis during collective worship, our teaching and our extra curricular activities. We value working in close partnership with parents and families throughout this precious educational journey.
