Dear Parents and Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,

I trust you all had a good half term break. It is always a lovely time of year, as Halloween activities are closely followed by Bonfire Night excitement and I hope all the pupils have a great time, safely enjoying any firework displays they attend. It’s also been busy this week, with Nant BH taking place and we await the children’s return later. I’m sure they’ll be full of stories and when I visited them last night, I heard nothing but praise from all staff attending. They are having a great time, which I’m sure will live long in the memory.

The week has also ended with the news shared by the Chair of Governors regarding my plans in the New Year. I’m grateful to the Governors for facilitating this great opportunity for me. While I will be sad to step aside from a role I hold so dear, it will also bring exciting and fresh times for the school over my period of absence and I know from experience that the interim leadership team will have the full support of the whole school community.
