Y3/4 Urdd Trip –  Estelle & Abbey were very enthusiastic about the trip.  “The bowling trip was fun, and we loved the speedboat ride. The food was really good, especially the hash browns. In the evening we watched Toy Story 4  and ate all our snacks. We were tired out by all the activities and had a good nights sleep” Diolch girls, we are glad you enjoyed it.

Assembly – Thank you to the Ocean Conservation Trust for our Slimy Seas Assembly this week, we learnt lots of disgusting facts about Hag Fish, Parrot Fish,Limpets and Octopi and pretended to be Sharks!

School Dinners – Parents are reminded that there has been a zero debt policy in place for school meals since September 2017. School dinners must be paid for in advance. It is a parent’s responsibility to either make sure that there are sufficient funds in their child’s account to enable them to order a school dinner at morning registration, or to provide them with a packed lunch. Going forward; allowing an unpaid meal, even from day one, will require approval by the head teacher. Some parents may find it useful to enable the auto top-up function on sQuid – if you need any help with this please ask at the school office.

Eco Club – Last year our Eco Club was filmed for Swansea Bay TV about our Plastic Free Day, you can watch the clip here

Lateness – We would like to remind parents that school starts at 8.50 am. Children are encouraged to arrive between 8:40 am and 8:50 am  so that they are  ready to line up and enter school with their class at the beginning of the school day.  Foundation Phase Parents should wait with their child(ren) until the teacher comes on duty.

If you find that the roads are busy at the start of the school day please consider using our  Free Breakfast Club which  starts at 8.10am, when then is less traffic.

We understand that people can have occasional problems which means they are late, however some parents are late on a regular basis, causing disruption for office staff, teachers and class mates.

Being 5 minutes late every day gives a total of

25 minutes every week

316 minutes a term

2 full days a year
