Welcome/Croeso to a new school year.

Our 3rd Inset Day is on Monday 1st October, when school will be closed to pupils for staff training.

School Dinners now cost £2.30 per day or £11.50 per week. We no longer accept cash for School Dinners, and payment should be made online via sQuid, or Paypoint Card. Please contact the school office if you require assistance.

Activity Fund – We are very grateful for any voluntary contributions of £5.00 per term to our activity fund which pays for extra resources for art, food tasting, gardening, cooking, golden time activities, outdoor play equipment etc.

Fruit Tuckshop starts next week. It costs £1.00 per week for a piece of fresh fruit every day. You can pay on sQuid per half term or for the year.

Parent/Teacher Meetings – These take place the week after next. Please see our events page for more information.

Y5/6 Trip to Theatre Na Nog – On Wednesday 19th Sept Y5/6 will be going to the Dylan Thomas Theatre and Swansea Museum for a day of theatre  and workshops. We have been lucky enough to receive a grant towards most of the cost of the activity and transport, and are therefore asking for a small voluntary contribution of £2.00 to cover the shortfall.

Kerbcraft – Y2s will be taking part in Kerbcraft, learning all about road safety, it starts on Wed 19th Sept and continues every Wednesday for approximately 10 weeks.

Book Fair – The Book Fair runs after school from Monday 17th to Wednesday 18th September, please support this if you can as the school gets commission for every book sold.

Our achievement tree has shed all its leaves, we would love to see it bloom again. If your child has any achievements outside of school such as swimming, dance, karate, reading scheme etc, please ask them to bring their certificate in to show us, they will then have a leaf with their name on it to put on the tree.

After School Clubs – Football starts on Thursday for Y5/6 children.
