Introduction to Llandinam School

Llandinam School is a Community Primary School, situated in an open rural position on the edge of Llandinam village.

The first ‘real’ school in Llandinam of which there is an authentic record was a charity school started in 1754 in the gallery of the Parish Church. It was here that David Davies received his education in the 1820s. A new school was erected in 1853 by means of a charity and this later became the National School. In 1884 the school was not recommended for a government grant so David Davies Esq resolved to give a new school to Llandinam. The village celebrated the opening of the New Board School on 7th July 1884.

The school was enlarged to its present size in 1968 with the addition of the junior classroom, new toilets, staffroom and boiler house. The children enjoy the use of tremendous facilities, given the size of the school. These include: large playground areas, cultivated and wildlife gardens, a sports field, including athletics area, and a nearby adventure playground. Within the school we have recently developed a fully equipped I.T. suite. Plans for after school care are under way and we hope to offer this facility as soon as possible.

The school is a Locally Managed School with a 95% delegated budget. This means that the Governing Body is responsible for the allocation of 95% of the expenditure in the annual school budget.
