iPay impact

iPay is the online payment system that we use for all payments to school e.g. school dinners, fruit tuckshop, breakfast club, trips, activity fund, charity days etc. Everything has it’s own separate fund so please ensure that you are putting money into the correct one. To see all available funds go to the menu, then accounts, and select your child. If you need a registration letter or any help with using iPay please contact the school office.

Reporting Absence

If your child is absent from school please report this to the school office by phoning the school on 01792 463019 and leaving a message on our attendance line, including the reason for absence. Alternatively you can email the school office at Please do not rely on passing on messages to staff at the school gate or via class dojo as these do not always reach our attendance officer.

If you have an upcoming planned absence e.g. a holiday please complete the online form:

Dinner Money

School Dinners are currently free for Reception to Year 3. After the February half term this will be extended to Year 4s. For those who pay for school meals, please remember 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.

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 January

All children should be treated equally (Article 2)
