Croeso! Welcome to Cwmrhydyceirw Primary School. We are one of the largest primary schools in Swansea with almost 600 pupils and we are situated in Morriston on the east side of Swansea. We are very proud of our school and everyone who works (and plays!) within it. Selecting the correct school for your child is a vital decision and we feel that we offer a wealth of opportunities for your child to develop a variety of skills and talents during their time with us.

Our school has had a very successful track record over the years and we were delighted in April 2018 to be judged by Estyn as being ‘Excellent’ in all five inspection areas – the first English medium primary school in Wales to achieve this under the new Estyn framework.

We want your child to be happy and flourish with us at ‘CRC’ so if you have any queries then please contact me at the school and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Latest School Update

As we return to school this September, the school looks slightly different with a couple of new members of staff joining us as Mrs. Wisby, Mr. Graham and Mr. Henry undertake secondments within other schools and in other roles. We are welcoming Miss Bethan Jones into one of our Reception classes and Miss Emily Nichol into one of our year 5 classes.

A note to all year 3 parents that year 3 children are now entitled to free school meals this term. All they need to do is select the meal that they would like from the menu when they come into school.

Apart from that, it’s business as usual in our very busy school! As always, if you need to speak to me then please contact me at school.

Many thanks,

Mr. Casker.
