Enterprise Fair

There is information about our enterprise fair on Monday 4th April in the newsletter emailed today. These are the products that the children have been making. The children can bring monies in on Monday in a labelled purse / container / envelope. Typical amounts sent in the past have ranged between 50p and no more than £5.

The theme has been ‘sustainability and recycling’ in most classes.
Nursery and Reception have made photo ‘cress heads’. 
Year 1 have decorated glass jars which can be multifunctional.
Year 2 have made marshmallow pops and decorated biscuits.
Year 3 have created an environmental Easter egg which can be planted into the ground to watch what grows.
Year 4 have created environmental friendship bracelets.
Year 5 have made corner bookmarks using origami skills – corner pockets and frog hoppers!
Year 6 have created pom-pom keyrings.
There is a photo attached showing all the items with the prices. Older children have done lots of research and asked for consumer feedback.

Posters and adverts will be shared on Seesaw.

Weather permitting we may have products for sale at hometime on the main school yard, if there are any left!

Health & Safety – Parking

School have received complaints from parents and local residents about unsafe and inconsiderate parking again over the last two days. These relate to issues on Lower Minster, Barkers Lane and Lisburne Grove.
As always, this is a small minority of people who are not considering the safety of the children and families or being respectful of local residents.
You may be aware that the Highway Code has recently been updated. There are clear rules about parking for the safety of all. Amongst other areas, the Highway Code states DO NOT PARK:
  • near a school entrance (this is demarcated with yellow zig-zags outside our school)
  • opposite or within 10m of a junction
  • opposite a traffic island or other parked vehicle if this would cause an obstruction
  • where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles
  • in front of an entrance to a property
  • on a bend
Please also be aware that although there are exemptions for blue badge holders, safe and responsible parking should still be adhered to. Full details of places that you can and can not park are listed: https://gov.wales/sites/default/files/publications/2021-12/blue-badge-scheme-rights-and-responsibilities-in-wales.pdf

Thank you to everyone who reports registration numbers / photographs to the school office. These are passed to Local Policing and the local councillor has contacted traffic enforcement.
Thank you also to the vast majority of our families who despite also being busy and having the same space available, DO park with the safety of the children and consideration for others in mind. Everyone in our school community appreciates this.

Support for Parents

Upcoming sessions on Drug Proof’ and ‘Chalkenging Behaviour’.
For more information about any of the topics, there are contact details on the poster.

Spring Term Letter

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.

Please see the letter below which has also been sent via Seesaw to parents. Apologies but our Eduspot system for sending bulk emails had some technical issues.
A reminder also about safe and considerate parking on Barker’s Lane and surround streets before and after school. If you observe any issues, please report this to the school office and these will passed on to the local PCSO and our local councillor.
Many thanks.
