ADDITIONAL INSET DAY
The Welsh Government has designated an extra INSET day for this academic year in order for schools to work together within their cluster to further their design and approach in support of the new curriculum. This will held on Friday 26th June 2020.
When parking near the school on drop off and pick up we would like to remind of you of the needs of both our pupils and neighbours. Please remember to drive within the speed limit and be mindful where you park and avoid parking across residents’ driveways or on pavements which causes a danger to our pupils and carers. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
SUPPORT MRS ROMANS
On Sunday 6th October, Mrs Romans will be walking the Cardiff Half-Marathon in memory of Ben McDonald who tragically died after crossing the finish line last year.
She is hoping to raise money for ‘Welsh Hearts’, who are organising free heart screening in Ben’s memory.
If anyone would like to donate, Mrs Romans has a collection box and she will be in the Junior playground before and after school every day next week. Remember, every little helps! Thank you.
MIDDAY SUPERVISORS STILL NEEDED!
The school is still looking for Midday Supervisors to cover Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please contact the school office if you, or anyone you know, can help us out.
Our next book fair will take place before and after school, 8.45am to 9.15am and 3.15pm until 3.45pm, from the morning of Monday 14th October and finishing on the morning of Friday 18th October.
We need volunteers to enable the Book Fair to run, so if you are able to offer some help we will be very grateful. Please contact the school office if you are able to assist us, even one session would be fantastic.
This week’s best attendees are Mr Jarvis’s Y1/2 class in the foundation phase with a perfect 100% and Miss Price’s Y4 class in KS2 with 99.6%. These two classes will get a sticker on the graph and extra play next week!
