Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all students. We believe that all students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment in order to develop the belief, aspiration and courage to be their best.
The school has firm procedures for keeping our children safe. We work closely with parents and external agencies and follow the All Wales Child Protection Guidelines for safeguarding. For more information, we have a safeguarding policy and a specific Child Protection policy that can be found on the website under the Documents section.
