Parental Questionnaire 2018-19

An email has been sent out with a link to our parental questionnaire. We would be extremely grateful if you could spare a few minutes to access and complete this to help support our self evaluation and school improvement processes. Diolch yn fawr.    

Junior (Y3-6) WOW Day – Monday 18th February

At the end of this half term our junior topic ‘Here and Now, There and Then’ (The Victorians) will come to an end. To conclude this topic we are planning another ‘Wow Day’ for the children on Monday 18th February to celebrate what they have learnt. On this day, the children may come to school dressed up as a Victorian person like they did in September if they so wish, e.g. a Victorian child or a famous person. Please do not go out and purchase new costumes as if your child does not have their costume from September or did not wear one, school uniform should just be worn as normal. The day will be full of activities to end the Victorians topic. <?xml:namespace prefix = “o” ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />

PTA Meeting

The PTA meeting detailed on dates for the diary sent out in January scheduled for this Wednesday (13th February) at 7pm will take place in the Cunliffe Arms. All welcome.    

Take care on journey to school

Bore da, please take care on your journey to school. Pavements are still slippery. All of our gates are open. Please keep to treated, cleared pathways and DO NOT enter the main school yard. We will maintain the hometime arrangements that we put in place on Wednesday and Thursday today and will hopefully then be back to normal on Monday. As per message on Wednesday evening, children may still wear warm trousers / joggers and trainers if they wish with their school sweatshirt. Many thanks for all of your kind words about how we have managed the snow and ice around the school site whilst still enabling the children to have some fun outside. Thank you for your support.    

Cold weather arrangements for rest of the week

Diolch yn fawr for your support with hometime arrangements today which hopefully alleviated some of the traffic issues which are often worsened in poor weather conditions.   Very cold weather is forecast for the next two days, therefore the children may wear warm jogging bottoms / trousers to school with suitable footwear if you so wish. Trainers are permitted for the next couple of days if these would be safer footwear for your child.   If we have anymore snow, we will endeavour to take the children out on the field again as we had lots of fun outside today. Please pop a change of footwear and socks / tights in your child’s bag if this is the case.   Our caretaker will be working hard to treat pathways on the school grounds to ensure that the children can come in through their usual door in the morning. Please keep to these and do not enter the main school yard.   Home time arrangements for the rest of the week will be the same as today. Reception, Y1 and Y2 children can be collected from their usual classroom door between 2.45pm and 3pm. Older siblings will join them in their class ready for this time. Y3 children can be collected from their classroom door between 2.45pm and 3.10pm. Y4, 5 and 6 children can be collected between 3.05pm and 3.10pm from the front door by the main office.   Pro-skills will be running as normal unless we are notified otherwise. Parents would be contacted in the unlikely event that there would be any change to these arrangements made by Pro Skills.   Wraparound care will be running as normal.    

Hometime Arrangements

To help reduce traffic at hometime, infant teachers and Y3 can be collected between 2.45 and 3pm at their usual classroom doors. Older siblings will join them and come home at the same time. Please do not go onto the main school yard and leave the school site as soon as you have collected your children to help things run as smoothly as possible.   Y4, 5 and 6 children who do not have younger siblings will be coming home from the front entrance and can be collected from 3.05-3.10pm. Football club is still on tonight for those staying with Mr Williams.   The back gate will be unlocked at 2.45pm for anyone wishing to walk that way.    

Inclement weather update

Bore da, school will be open as normal. The snow falling currently has not been forecast to last long but please check updates throughout the day if the snow persists. Please take care on the school site and keep to treated pathways within the school grounds. All children should enter through the main entrance this morning unless directed otherwise by staff who will be on duty. The back gate is out of use and will remain closed this morning. Diolch yn fawr for your support.

Safe journey to school

Bore da. School is open as normal this morning. Please take care on your journey to school as some areas are slippery. All gates are open. Please keep to the treated pathways within the school grounds.
