WOW – The Walk to School Challenge
We are taking part in the WOW – Walk to School Challenge from Monday 28th November.
WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk/wheel, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It’s that easy! Look out for more information coming by email.
Due to severe allergies, the following classes are nut-free zones:
– Bracelet B
– Bracelet L
– Bracelet N
– Caswell M
– Caswell N
If your child is in one of these classes please check the packaging of packed lunch items or any other food items being sent into school to ensure that they do not contain nuts. Thank you.
Christmas Swap Shop
Many children are bringing large school bags into school and we are struggling to accommodate them on our cloakroom trolleys and coat hooks. If you are buying new or replacing any school bags please choose the smallest option where ever possible. If your child has a school dinner and is only bringing a water bottle to school, please consider whether they need to bring a bag at all. We have a lot of stairs in school, and therefore bags with wheels are not suitable and unsafe. Thank you for your understanding.
Reminder that Swansea Council have a zero debt policy, and dinner money must be paid in advance. If your child is having school dinners and is not eligible for Free School Meals, please ensure that your iPay account is topped up.
You can support the school just by doing your usual shopping. To find out more about easy fundraising and to sign up click the link:
Save the date: Half price book fair with Scholastic Thursday 30th November and Friday 1st December 3:30pm (after all children have been collected) until 4:15pm.
We will also be hosting a second hand uniform sale at the same time. We are very keen for any donations. This can include coats, P.E kit and shoes with lots of life left in them as well as any uniform. Please can any donations be dropped off at the school office in a bag. All donations must be washed and dried.

Rights Respecting School
As a Rights Respecting School, we focus each month on a particular Article from the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child. Assemblies, Circle time and class activities are based on these Rights. In connection with these, we also have a Value of the Month. Together, the Rights & Values encourage our learners to be respectful of each other, safe, and to be the best they can be.
Right of the Month for November – You have the right to be kept safe (Article 19).
Value of the Month for November – Peace
