Cwmnedd Primary School serves the community of Glynneath in the beautiful Neath Valley. The school is on a split site with Nursery and Reception based at Morfa Glas. This purpose built, open plan, Early Years unit is some 500m from the main building at New Street, Glynneath. It is contained within its own grounds with large play and grassed areas. Whereas Morfa Glas is a 1950’s building, with flat roof, the main building is early 20th Century, of traditional design with a demountable classroom in the yard.
The surrounding countryside is one of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the Neath Valley with the Pontneathvaughan Waterfalls within walking distance of the school. Residentially the area consists of both privately and council owned housing. The school places high on its list of priorities the use of visits out of as well as inside the community. Each class is encouraged to make full use of visits. Typical of so many Welsh valleys there is a sense of belonging and responsibility to the area and the school is held in high regard. There is a good relationship between the school and the community.
