Dear Parents and Carers.
We hope that you have had a lovely weekend.  We have been donated a small number of uniform items including shoes, trousers, and coats.  These will be available for you to take, free of charge from the school hall after school on Wednesday. 
We have had enquiries about a few items from parents, so I hope that the following information will be useful.
  1.  All maintained schools in Wales work from the Healthy Schools Guidance and recommendations:
These set out very clear guidance as to the types of food and drink schools are allowed to provide to get the right amount of nutrients to promote growth and good health and that saturated fat, sugar and salt are restricted.  In terms of school snack brought from home, schools are required to encourage healthy eating choices of food and drink.  Please do not worry that items will be removed or confiscated, as they will not (apart from fizzy and energy drinks), however we would ask you to think carefully about any food and drink items that you send with your children to school.  
  1. Birthday cake in school:
As you will recall we stopped the bringing of birthday cake into school during the Covid Pandemic.  We have regular discussions about this item and whether this could recommence.  Although the Welsh Government do not prohibit this, they do say that if allowed in school, that it should be sent home and that schools are to explore this matter in the light of promoting wider healthy eating choices.
Consequently as a school we have decided currently not to reinstate the bringing in and subsequent sharing of birthday cake due to the following reasons:
  • Healthy eating guidance

  • Allergy concerns

  • Cost implications (which can potentially single out families who aren’t able to do this).                                                                                                      

We will ensure that your child is sang happy birthday to and we will endeavour to make them feel special on their birthday, but we do hope that you can understand our reasoning and support us with this at this time.   
Please contact me if you require any further information about the above items.
Best wishes.

Mrs Edwards



Dear Parents and Carers.

As you will be aware, on Thursday 8th September Buckingham Palace sadly announced the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

The UK Government later announced that Monday 19 September, the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral, will be a bank holiday across the United Kingdom and that schools would not be asked to remain open on this day.  Our school will be closed on Monday 19th September to mark Her Majesty’s passing and commemorate Her reign.  We will open as normal from Tuesday 20th September. 

Mrs Edwards.



Dear Parents and Carers.

The children have done such a wonderful job this week and have settled in well.  They all look incredibly smart in their school uniforms and we have been so impressed by their positive attitudes demonstrated. 

Today we have been remembering her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the incredible dedication and devotion she has shown to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth during her 70 year reign.  We have been supporting the children today, by answering their questions and providing them with opportunities to discuss how they feel.  We will be exploring her Majesty’s life and that of the Monarchy during the next few weeks at school. 

Look after yourselves everyone.

Mrs Edwards
