A very happy new year to you all.  We have launched our new whole school topic "Make do and mend!" and I have no doubt there is going to be some amazing learning going on.


Our Caffi Cynefi has re-opened.  Please come along and bring an elderly or isolated person so our pupils can make their day.  We have a new menu and Environmental Health did a spot check yesterday and awarded us with a food standard rating of 5.  On the 25th of January we have some Welsh Government visitors coming to the Caffi.  Please come along if you can. 


I need to make you aware of the financial pressures on all schools.  We are running our school with less staff than we have for many years, and are all doing our very best to ensure budget issues impact as little as possible on pupils' learning and well-being.  You can help us greatly with this by not pulling staff away from their core business unless urgent.   For example, please email rather than phone; please do not arrive late and please do not request early pickup unless absolutely necessary because every minute counts in the schools day.  We have set up a new "early pick up" request form online should you need it, and this can be accessed here.  


We made good strides with our attendance last term, but we can still do better.  Please help us to help your child to be the best that they can by not booking holidays during term time.  Missed learning experiences can never be re-lived, and pupils with lower attendance will not make as much progress as their peers.  


Here are this week's headlines:


Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week: Teach your child about misinformation.  The rise of digital platforms has made it convenient for people to share information online. However, it has also become challenging to separate genuine and false information. What children encounter on the internet can significantly influence their perception of the world and affect their overall health. Therefore, it is important to educate them about the spreading of misinformation and ways to identify it. Click here here to read more information
