Informing the School of a Child’s Positive Covid Test – Fortunately we have not had any Covid cases to date, but if your child develops symptoms and you receive a positive test result, we would be grateful if you could let us know as soon as possible (as well as liaising with Track & Trace). During the school day you can ring the school number on 01792 463019, or if you receive the result outside of school hours please send a message via ClassDojo to Mrs Morgans.

Elf Day – Next Friday staff will be dressing up as Elves to raise money for the Alzheimer Society, it is completely optional but if children would like to join in too, for a small donation towards the charity, that would be fantastic. There is a Charity Donation offer in the Trips and Offers part of sQuid.

Christmas Concerts –  Unfortunately we will not be able to put on our Christmas Concerts this year, however we hope to be able to film each class performing an item, and edit them together into a video. We are still working out the details, and will need to get parental consent for children to appear in the video, but this will be in the next couple of weeks.

Welsh government launches ‘Parenting. Give it time’ campaign
The Welsh Deputy Minister for Health and Social Services, Julie Morgan has launched a new campaign to give information, support and advice to parents. “Parenting. Give It Time” recognises that the pandemic has had an impact on families, including through increased isolation, supporting children who are self-isolating, or dealing with children’s anxiety. The new campaign provides information to parents on how to understand and respond to their children’s behaviour. It offers practical tips and advice on a range of issues. The core three themes are: your child’s behaviour, giving your child time, and supporting parents through the challenges they face. Full details available here:

As always, a big thank you for bearing with us at the beginning of the school day while we check that everyone is well and doesn’t have any Covid symptoms, and for keeping everyone safe by adhering to social distancing. Diolch

New arrangements for Gate 1 & Gate 2 – From Monday we will be altering the arrangements slightly. If you are bringing your child to line up with their class ( Y1/2L, Y4/5J , Y3/4N) please use Gate 2 (the double gates). If you are bringing siblings or you are late for your class line up, please use Gate 1 (the single gate). Thank you.

Earlier this week we sent home a questionnaire about Service Children, thank you if you have already completed it. If you haven’t had the chance please take a few of minutes to answer a couple of questions here.

Children in Need – Thank you to everyone who joined in today, and for the donations. The offer will remain open on sQuid for a few days if you haven’t had the chance to make a donation yet.

Parent Governor Elections – we received three nominations for the two vacancies, so we will be sending home ballot papers for an election in the next week or so.

Reminder – Please can children bring in their own pencil cases (Year 1 to Year 6) with some pens/pencils/ruler/eraser/sharpener etc. We do have some items to lend children but they have to be thoroughly sanitised/ quarantined before they can be lent out again.

School Dinner Menu – The options have changed, and Miss Rees has sent a copy of the new menu out via Dojo today.

Message from the Local Authority – Digital Exclusion – During the first lockdown, schools looked to identify those pupils that were digitally excluded and with the support of Swansea Council and Welsh Government, provided connectivity and devices to learners. We are currently trying to ascertain any further barriers to home/blended learning, especially those caused by digital exclusion. The responses from this survey will enable us to find what these are and help us to provide appropriate strategies for the continuation of learning.

Just a reminder that if any pupils or members of their household are showing any Covid symptoms please isolate immediately and seek medical advice.
