At Y Bont Faen Primary School we want every child to gain the most from their education; coming to school every day, on time, is an important part of children reaching their full potential.


School starts at:

8.55am for Morning Nursery

9.00am for Reception to Year 6

Afternoon Nursery starts 12.30pm

For Reception to Year 6, the gates to the playground are opened at 8.45am, to enable children to be in school on time and ready for the bell to ring.

School finishes at:

11.30am for Morning Nursery

2.55pm for Afternoon Nursery

3pm for Reception to Year 6


The school target for all children is 97%, so we want all our children to come to school regularly and are only absent if they are ill.

Informing the school of absence

If your child is ill and is absent from school, please inform the school straight away.

Please ring the school office on the first day of absence on 01446 772374, or complete the enquiry form via the website.


Parents should try their best to make any appointments outside of school time.  If your child has an appointment in the morning, they should come back into school as soon as it is finished so they don’t miss their lessons. If your child has an appointment in the afternoon, they should come to school for the morning.
