Hi, my name is Bethan Moore, Headteacher at Crownbridge Special School,

It gives me great pleasure to work at Crownbridge Special School.   A school that I started over 18 years ago embarking on my Special education career after working for 2 years in a Local Primary school in Newport.   

Crownbridge has always been at the heart of special education in Torfaen and it has a long-standing reputation as a school, which opens its doors to share ideas and learn from others. We have a large team of dedicated professionals, who never cease to amaze me with their commitment and passion in ‘going the extra mile’ for our pupils, enabling them to reach their potential and beyond. I am sure that, like me, the positive atmosphere in our school will impress you whenever you visit. As the Headteacher, it is my aim to nurture and sustain this so that we continue to support and inspire our young learners well into the future.

There are exciting times for education in Wales ahead and we are working hard with the Welsh Government as a Pioneer School, in preparation for a new curriculum.  

The landscape of Special Educational Needs (SEN) is changing too as the Welsh Government unveil the new Additional Learning Needs (ALN) Act. 

The Act proposes a complete overhaul of the system for supporting children and young people with additional learning needs, which will affect nearly every early years, school and further education setting in Wales. It outlines a bold new approach for supporting learners with additional learning needs; an approach that is fit for an ambitious, 21st century Wales in which the learning of all children and young people is prioritised. 

You will see me around the school during our school events or during the week to greet our pupils and families so do please say hello.   We are a welcoming school that truly feels it is “together we live, learn and value”.
