FCE (Foundation of Community Engagement)
Accreditation June 2021
At Ysgol Gyfun Tredegar Comprehensive School, we strive to support our pupils, their families, and our local community. At our school, we put the progress and wellbeing of our pupils at the centre of everything we do as we aim to grow creative, ambitious, and caring young people who will make positive contributions to the future of our community. Our school motto is 'Working Together For Success', and it underpins everything we aim to achieve.
We have built excellent relationships with our local church; local businesses; local artists; Bedwellty Park; Tredegar Town Council; Tredegar Heritage Forum; Coal Field Regeneration Trust; our cluster primaries and much more. Wonderful projects have been developed which have enriched our school community as well as the local community. Some of these projects include,
•Remembrance Day plastic poppy display where we collaborated with the community and cluster primaries to make a display of poppies made from reused plastic, these were displayed in the grounds of the church & was covered by ITV news.
•The design and planning of 10 the Circle - A working museum for the community and schools to use, in collaboration with Tredegar heritage.
•The design of a series of QR codes about the History of Tredegar that will be placed around the town, in collaboration with Tredegar Town Council.
•Cymru Creations, a local film company have worked closely with the History department to make films such as ‘The Jewish Riots’.
•Coal Field Regeneration Trust, we have been involved in several projects around regeneration of the town.
•Holocaust Memorial workshop was hosted at Bedwellty Park in collaboration with our History department. These are just a few examples of our community projects.
We look forward to working with Sue Davies and her team at FCE as we strive to further improve our community collaborations and family support strategies. We are certain that by constantly evaluating and using the 'Progress Map for Empowerment', we will be successful at building and sustaining strong relationships with our pupils, their families, and the wider community.
