Llanilltud Faerdref Primary School is housed in a modern building built in 1974. The school is a mixed 3 to 11 age school situated in Church Village. It is an LEA school and within the area of Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council. The school was originally a junior school, but a new Nursery Unit and internal changes were made in 1990, when the school merged with the old infant school to become a primary school. We benefit from extensive grassed areas surrounding the school with our own football/rugby pitch and there is a school eco garden. There is also a large yard with plenty of outdoor equipment. The Foundation Phase area has a large canopied area with planters and seating. There has been a School Site here since the early 1860's
We have an active and very supportive Governing Body, who are responsible for the school. Advice and support is provided by the Local Education Authority (L.E.A). The governing body has delegated the responsibility for the day to day management of the school to the headteacher, under the Local Management of Schools scheme (L.M.S) this involves the management of learning, school policies, personnel and resources. The governing body meet at least once every term and sub committees, eg. Finance and curriculum, meet when deemed necessary. We have strong links with our feeder comprehensive school which is Bryncelynnog Comprehensive School, Beddau.
