School Start Time – Just a reminder that school starts at 8.50am with the gates opening at 8.40am. We are seeing an increase in parents who are frequently late, and therefore their children are missing approximately an hour, to an hour and a half of school a week. Please be on time.
School Finish Time – School finishes at 3.20pm, with the younger classes coming out a few minutes earlier. If you know you are unavoidably late, please contact us so we can reassure the children that you are on your way.

Massive thanks to the team at Swansea University for hosting the event, they are in process of planning another screening for Caswell and Oxwich pupils and parents over the coming weeks. We’ll share details as soon as we can.
Easter Egg Trail:
Join us for an Easter egg trail around Brynmill Park Tuesday 4th 10am!
Starting point The Hide, collect your sheet and pencil to write down your findings and begin the search for 10 eggs hiden around the park. The race is on for a chance to win a prize for the 3 fastest times!
While you wait for the results to be announced 12pm there will be an Easter arts and crafts table set up in The Hide alongside a tea and coffee stand with delicious baked goods for sale.
£1 per child, every contestant will get chocolate eggs (‘free from’ chocolate available) a cup of squash and a biscuit. Hope to see you all there for some Easter fun!
