Welcome to Risca Primary School

On behalf of the Staff and Governors, may I warmly welcome you to Risca Primary School and hope that the time that your child spends with us will be both happy and successful. 


We aim to provide a firm foundation for pupils through a broad, balanced and enjoyable education, whilst placing high emphasis on the basic skills of reading, writing and maths.


We place a high priority on establishing good links with parents, as we know that children thrive when home and school work together.


This website is the beginning of that process and I hope that you will find it useful throughout you child’s school career.  Some of the information such as dates and test results will be updated annually. This information will be sent to you in the “Governor’s Report to Parents” and via school newsletters.


Yours sincerely


Mrs J. Arthur

Head Teacher
