Dear Parents and Carers,


 Great News!

Our Attendance now stands at 91.6% (slightly up from last week)

Swansea Target 95%

Llanrhidian Target 96%  


As we head into half term, it is a time to reflect how far we have come in twelve months.   With our community events back up and running; the Curriculum for Wales firmly embedded and all the improvements to our school grounds and building, it really does feel like a positive school year.   And it is far from over.  Straight after the half term break we have our "Leek Week" and St David's Day celebrations.  (See below for important information),  and of course we are planning our end of term Easter Eggstravaganza Event.  Thank you all for making this  fabulous school such a special place. 


Our pupils are developing their integral skills in Caffi Cynefin - this week was the busiest ever.  Thank you again for all your support.  If you can ever help out with dishes etc, please let us know.   


You should have received an email regarding the industrial action on March 2nd.  Please ensure you have this information, and we will keep you updated of any further developments.   Sadly this means there will be no Caffi Cynefin this week. Here are the headlines this week:- 



Marchnad Dydd Gwyl Dewi Wednesday March 1st We will be holding our St David's Day Celebrations of March 1st.   Please send your child into school in a Welsh costume or red clothes. eg rugby top.  It would be wonderful if they were all wearing a leek or a daffodil.  Please also send in the following:-

  • A Leek - all week will be "leek week" and we will be doing lots of learning through leeks! Please help us by sending in a leek with your child's name on it before Wednesday.   As always there will be a heaviest leek competition on St David's Day.  
  • Something Welsh to sell on your  Pod's Welsh stall - all funds will go to the pod fund for fun equipment.
  • Money to spend in the marchnad please ensure this is in a purse with their name on.  We advise no more than £2.


If you want to collect your child at 2pm please go to the usual place you collect your child.  We will open the gate by the bus bay at 1.55pm.  (Other gates will remain locked)  If you arrive later than 2pm, speak to a member of staff at the market and we will let the pod know you are heading their way to collect.  Please be patient as our main priority is always safeguarding.  If you do collect your child, please supervise their behaviour at all times.  If you are unable to attend the marchnad, please let the pod staff know and we will ensure they visit the stalls before the end of the school day. 


Caffi Cynefin will be open to sell teas, coffees and welsh cakes in our wonderful bone china cups.  If you could donate any cakes for this event we would be very grateful.  We will also be selling take out teas, coffees and cold drinks. 


Please note there will be no Clwb Hwyl on this day. (Wednesday March 1st).


Punctuality - School officially starts at 8.50 and registers close at 8.55.  This means our teachers should be in front of their pupils at 8.55 latest.  This is monitored by the local authority, so please help us to ensure your child gets the very best start to their school day. For your convenience our staff make themselves available from 8.40 so you can drop off from this time.
