Dear Parents and Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,

Estyn Report – It’s been genuinely heartwarming to see, hear and read how thrilled everybody is about our successful report. Thank you all for your support. It’s lovely to see how much the whole school community and indeed beyond is collectively proud of our achievements.

Creative Projects – Year 2 and 5 kicked off their creative projects this week. Take a look at twitter for some fantastic photos.

Family Service – Year 5’s Family Service will take place next Friday 8th February at 9am. Parents and relatives welcome.

Urdd Netball – This takes place next Thursday. Good luck to the girls.

Urdd Eisteddfod – I’ve made my lists! Could instrumentalists please provide me with copies of the music, including details of the books they are copied from. Many thanks. Also – please make sure your child is an Urdd member if taking part.

Achievers – Students of the Week were Ryan, Joe, Isabella, Samadhi, Llinos, Ben, Connie, Casi and Milly. Welsh awards went to Shreya and Melissa. Llinos received a dance certificate, Max a Karate certificate and gymnastic awards went to Emily and Emi-Lee. Well done all!

Attendance and sickness – Could I ask for your co-operation in ensuring that if your child is absent for any reason, that you inform us straight away. This can be done by leaving a message on the phone, emailing the school or popping into the office. For safeguarding purposes, it is important we know where our pupils are if they have not arrived at school. Additionally, may I also ask you to ensure that if your child has suffered from diarrhoea or vomiting that they should not be sent to school for 48 hours.

Mobile Phones – There has been a recent increase of cases where pupils are bringing their mobile phones into school. Unless there is a very good safeguarding reason to bring one, mobile phones are not permitted. If pupils do need one in school, then they must be handed in for their teacher to look after until the end of the school day. Your co-operation here would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
