Dear Parents and Carers,
It is that time when we start to evaluate all our actions against our targets for the year. You are always a great help in evaluating our school, and we would really appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete our parent questionnaire. This, together with the views of the pupils, the governors, the local authority and the results of monitoring across the school will enable us to set our targets for the coming year. We will share these with you in Autumn when we invite you to a "Stakeholder Curriculum Design Event" where you can also have your say in helping us design a curriculum that meets both the needs and the interests of our pupils. A good school will always seek to improve, and although we will never please everyone, we will listen. Here are this week's headlines:-
Parent Questionnaire - Firstly thank you for supporting our journey through yet another challenging year. As always we welcome your views on many aspects of our school. These will feed into our self evaluations and help us to formulate our priorities for next year. Please be assured that your responses will be kept anonymous.

Amser Tost a Dydd Mercher Maeth - We are always looking for opportunities to support our pupils well-being and their learning. These are intrinsically linked and teachers report that when pupils are hungry, they lose concentration and do not perform at their best. For this reason we are introducing a snack during their "Relax and Refuel" time each morning. This is in addition to any fruit you wish to send in. Obviously it will not be compulsory, but I am sure many of our pupils will enjoy this, especially in those dark and dismal winter months. This obviously comes at a cost to the school, but we do think it is worth it. On Dydd Mercher (Wednesday) pupils will have a different snack prepared by our wonderful Dreigiau. If you would like to send any cash or cheque donations into the school (however small) it really does help us to provide our pupils with the things that make their time in school one to remember.
Weekly Premises Plea - Big thank you to those fabulous dads who are helping us with the polytunnel, raised flower beds, and much more - you know who you are and we are really grateful! 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
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
