After School Clubs next week – Cross Country on Wednesday, Football on Thursday.

Children late for school – We are being monitored by the local authority for the quantity & frequency of late pupils. Please ensure that your child is either in the yard at 8.40am ready for the bell at 8.50am or in our early Bird/ Breakfast Club. Our Education Welfare Officer will be doing spot checks on late pupils.

Attendance – Congratulations to Y1/2H with 97.2% attendance, and to Y5/6M with 97.9% attendance. Both classes are above our 96% attendance target. Llongyfarchiadau !

Techniquest – Unfortunately we did not receive enough voluntary contributions to cover the cost of the recent Techniquest Workshop, which jeopardises further trips and visits. If you were intending on contributing, but have forgotten, we would be grateful for your contribution. If you can’t remember whether you have paid or not, we are happy to check. Some people have indicated that they will pay on sQuid, but unfortunately we have not received payment, please check your sQuid account to ensure the payment has gone through. Thank you.

We are going cashless! In line with other schools and following on from the success of going cashless for school dinners, we are rolling this out for trips and offers.  We will implement this from Monday 4th March, which will give parents who are not already using it, plenty of time to register. Please contact the school office if you need any help with registering, or have any other queries. Thank you.

Cake Sale – Our Criw Cymraeg are organising a cake sale on Monday 28th Jan to raise money for Welsh resources. We would be grateful for donations of cakes on the day, and please could children bring a small amount of money to enable them to buy cakes. (Suggested donation 50p – £1.00) Diolch!


Y5/6 Residential – Just a reminder that the next installment of at least £50.00 for the Y5/6 Residential Trip is due by Thurs 31st January.

Y3/4 – Overnight Trip to Cardiff. There is brief meeting next Wednesday (23rd) at 3.30pm for parents of Y3/4 children going on the overnight trip. If you are unable to make the meeting, we will send home any information. Please ensure that you have paid for the trip in full as the deadline was today. Diolch.
