Dear Parents and Carers,


Our Attendance now stands at 92.9%

(Up from last week - Well done!)

Swansea Target 95%

Llanrhidian Target 96%


Another glorious week at Llanrhidian, we are certainly enjoying the beautiful weather.  School is still important, even this time of the year so please ensure you child is attending the full day and arriving on time.  Teachers take the register at 8.55 and start their lessons straight away.  They cannot speak to parents after 8.55.  Unless attending a medical appointment, please do not ask to collect your child early.  This put us in a very awkward situation and one we have to justify to our education welfare officer.  So please help us by adhering to the school day times.  


Can you help? We do have a number of  premises issues that we help with.  These include a new fence for the orchard and removing rotten wood from Pili Pala and Pengwin's yard.  If you are able to help us with expertise, please let us know.    Here are the headlines this week:-


New Nursery Open Afternoon.  Tuesday 27th June 1:30- 3pm. 

If you have a child who is due to start in Pod Pili-Pala and would like to attend, please let the office know.  If you know of any other families who may wish to attend, please ask them to contact the school. 


sQuid -   As from Monday 5th June, all year 2 pupils will be entitled to universal free school meals.  Please can parents ensure that their squid accounts are clear by this time.  If you have too much credit, please contact sQuid direct to request a refund.


New Dinner Money System -   As from September County have arranged for schools to have a new dinner money system instead of sQuid.  We will send out information regarding this as soon as we receive it.  In the meantime, please can parents ensure that they use up all credits by the end of term (21st July) and cancel any automatic top-ups.


Parent Workshop (all ages) - Resilience; Wednesday 28th June 3:30pm in school. This workshop will be run by Amy Glass, our "In Reach" worker. This workshop will talk about how to support your child develop their resilience skills. Please let the office know if you would like to attend. Pupils can attend Clwb Hwyl.  


Gower Cycling Festival Sunday June 25th (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.     We desperately need help to run a BBQ to sell bacon rolls to the riders.  Please let us know if you can help.   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. 


Sports Day June 21st 2pm til 4pm - We are hoping to have another great event like last year.  Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy a few hours of community time.  More details to follow. Big thank you to Gower events who are lending us portaloos for the event.  


Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week:  Roblox is age rated 7 but users need to be particularly careful with this rating because Roblox is not one game but a constantly evolving library of games.  The most notable content risk to be aware of in Roblox is that it houses a user-generated library of games, so the potential to see inappropriate content is always there. There have been cases of new games being uploaded to the Roblox platform which contain explicit images and content and because the platform is user generated, this content is not always taken down immediately.

Premises Plea - We are always looking to make our environment welcoming, interesting and stimulating.  We need:-

  • Artificial plants,
  • Real house plants
  • Interesting ornaments (not too delicate) 
  • Fake Grass 
  • Cut logs for seats
  • Slices of log for displays
  • Bark chippings for paths
  • Good quality board games, packs of cards
