School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Dolwyddelan is situated in the village of Dolwyddelan, about six miles from Betws-y-Coed. It serves the village itself and the surrounding rural area and it is maintained by Conwy local authority. The school provides education for pupils between three and 11 years old. Children are admitted to the school part-time in the September following their third birthday and full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. During the inspection, there were 29 pupils on roll. The number of pupils has dropped a little since the last inspection. They are taught by two full-time teachers and one part-time teacher.

The majority of pupils come from homes where Welsh is spoken. There are no pupils from ethnic backgrounds at the school. Three point four per cent (3.4%) of pupils are entitled to free school meals. This is significantly lower than the percentages for the county and for Wales.
