School Closed – Monday

Due to the continued heavy snowfall into the evening and the very cold and icy conditions forecast, following a risk assessment the decision has been made to keep school closed on Monday 11th December.
A number of factors have to be taken into consideration, including staff:pupil ratios, safety on the school site in addition to advice from NW Police about travel. We hope that by making this decision today, it helps support parents who may need to make childcare arrangements.
The Y1&2 concert planned for tomorrow will now take place on Thursday 14th December at 1.30pm and 5.45pm. Please retain your tickets for this.
On behalf of the governing body and staff, I would like to thank you for your kind words and support when making decisions like this.
Please keep an eye on this website for further information tomorrow.

Important Information – Snow Update

Bore da, school is open as usual this morning. Heavy snow is however already falling on higher ground and is forecast for Wrexham just before lunch.   If the predicted snow arrives, Nursery and Reception parents / grandparents may take their children (and siblings) home after the concert this morning to avoid additional unnecessary journeys later in the day.   Please keep an eye on the weather and contact us if you wish to collect your child early from school.   Any further information about possible early closure of the school will be updated by text, on the website and on the WCBC website.


Nursery & Reception Concert

Just a few pictures from our first Christmas Concert performed by Nursery & Reception children. The words and singing were clear and they all looked wonderful!   Important reminder, that if you took photographs yourself – please only share photographs of your own child on your social media platform unless you have specific permission from other children’s parents to share their photographs.    






Important Information – Inclement Weather

As you may be aware a weather warning for snow has been issued across North Wales. Any information about school closures is published on the WCBC website. However from past experience, due to the volume of people across the county trying to access the information this can pose problems.   Therefore in addition we will also be issuing any information on the school website news as early as possible.      


Book Fair

The Book People Book Fair is taking place this week (Monday – Thursday) 8.45-9am and 3-4.15pm.   If you are unable to come along to the book fair but would like to browse the books, please see the photographs and attached order form.   Payment can be made on the WCBC website or a cheque / monies can be sent in to school.
