Dear Parents,


Good news!  The weather looks great for next week.  So dig out those picnic blankets ready for our sports day!  Please see important information below.   Please bring lots of spare change if you are going to buy drinks, ice-cream etc.  Please remember to support us with the raffle.  Mrs Parry is taking last orders for cream teas on Monday.  (Send in £5 for a cream tea for 2).    All monies raised help us to purchase resources, snacks, medals etc for your child.  



Amser tost is going down a storm with the pupils.  Not only is it comforting, it is giving the pupils a mid morning lift and we are seeing much better learning as a result.  From September we will be asking parents for a contribution to help us pay for this, and we really hope you will support us. 


We have been busy updating our key documents which are now available on our website.  Thank you so much for your questionnaire feedback which was very positive.  Our curriculum design has taken shape over the past 8 years, and we are really happy with the impact it has on learning and well-being.  We have bi-annual local authority reviews and we have also had an engagement visit with Estyn this year.  From September Governors will also be resuming their visits to school, so you can be assured that what we "say we do" we really do do!  Here are the links to key documents:-

Summer Raffle Reminder - As always we are are running a termly raffle to raise money for pod resources.   Please sell as many as you can as every £1 helps us to provide our pupils with the little extras that make their life in Llanrhidian memorable.  We will be making up hampers from smaller donations and larger items will be stand alone prizes.  We are asking for donations of the following prizes.  If you know any local business who can help, please let them know that we will always "Tweet" a thank you.  We are collecting:-

  • Sweets, biscuits, chocolates, wine, summer toys etc for hampers
  • Bottles of champagne, liquor, spirits, vouchers,  etc for stand alone prizes


Gower Cycling Festival Sunday July 10th (morning).  School Field - All welcome from 9.30 am.  -  We have been asked to be a "pit stop" again for this traditional event.  White Rock Events have already sponsored us a wonderful football kit and are also sourcing us some free portaloos for our sports day.     Thank you to those parents who have already offered to run the bacon butty BBQ and to help on the day.  We are expecting 600 cyclist to ride past the school so come along to cheer them on!  Hopefully lots will stop for breakfast.  We expect the first of the cyclists to arrive around 9.45 am. 



Weekly Premises Plea -   This week we need:-

  • Decking planks (New floor for the Pengwin house)
  • We need bark chippings for our paths  - does anyone know any landscape gardeners or tree surgeons who could sump their chippings in our field? 
  • Good quality toys eg lego, cars, role play etc for Pengwins and Pili Pala
  • Artificial plants to soften our indoor environment 


Have a fabulous weekend

Mrs Caswell
