Dear Parents and Carers, 


We have some exciting news to share with you.  The Governing body, ably assisted by the school council, has appointed a new deputy head teacher for the school.  Mrs Sarah Archard will be joining us from September, and we are all looking forward to working with our new colleague.  Mrs Archard is an extremely experienced teacher and school leader, and will be supporting our school in developing and designing our new curriculum.  I know you will all join me in welcoming our new deputy to Team Llanrhidian, and she will hopefully be able to introduce herself to you when she visits the school this term.  


It is at this time of year that we start wondering about which staff will be in which pods next year.  As always, when this is finalised we will let you know.


Thank you to those parents who are helping us with our school grounds!  We really appreciate your help and will continue to list our needs via our "Weekly Premises Plea" each week. 

Here are the headlines this week:- 


Sports Day Friday 8th July 2 – 4pm – You are all invited to watch the pod/year group sports day races. All pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a range of different races. Nursery AM are also invited back to the school for this event, however, they will need to be accompanied by an adult the whole afternoon.  During the afternoon there will also be other events that pupils can participate in whilst they wait for their race. We encourage you to bring a picnic and blanket to sit with your family in the school field. We are also looking for participants to join in the parent vs teacher race. Mr G is already in training mode.  Let's make this a great community event for all!  Aunts, Uncles, Grannies etc all welcome! 


Weekly Premises Plea -  This week we need:-

1. Decking planks (New floor for the Pengwin house)

2. Plants, soil, bark chippings and outside planters (To improve our gardens and fill our new raised beds)

3. Good quality toys eg lego, cars, role play etc for Pengwins and Pili Pala

4. Help to repair our polytunnel (Which looks a very sorry state) 

5. Artificial plants to soften our indoor environment



Please remember to check out our website calendar for key dates this term.


Have a great weekend

Mrs Caswell
