A Brief Description of St. Safan's

St. Safan's is a 4 teacher school with a Learning Support teacher based in the school. We are located in a picturesque, rural setting. The school consists of 4 modern, bright, well-resourced classrooms and a new Learning Support classroom. We are blessed with a spacious tarmacked playing area to the front of the school and an expansive green area to the back for football and free play. We also have a mini woodland, a picnic area, a butterfly patch and a school garden.
