Welcome/Croeso to St Monica's Church in Wales Primary School!

We are a small school, set in the vibrant area of Cathays in Cardiff and provide a welcoming, caring and secure environment in which Christian values are central to the ethos of the school and its community.  In our school, every child has the chance to shine.


We are applying to become a School of Sanctuary.  A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for those seeking sanctuary. This could be people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety.


We help our children, staff and wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. We are proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.


The Schools of Sanctuary Award is given by the City of Sanctuary movement to schools that have consistently put the sanctuary principles into practice. These principles are:

  • Learn about what it means to be seeking sanctuary and be actively involved in awareness raising (eg talks and training for students and staff, celebrating Refugee Week).
  • Take positive action to make welcoming and inclusion part of the values of your school, to support sanctuary seekers and refugees, and to include them in your activities (eg displays, school procedures, fundraising).
  • Share your vision and achievements with parents and governors, your cluster, and the wider Schools of Sanctuary network (eg post lesson plans online, take part in events).


Our children in St Monica's have a great understanding surrounding issues of identity, diversity, equality and community.

This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact me at the school directly with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting!
