Dear Parents/Carers,


I again want to thank you all for your diligence and patience at pick up times. Giving way to pedestrians as they walk down the side lane has made a huge difference, so thank you.  Please remember we have a window of collection until 3.40 to spread out the traffic and the crowds.  Please do not feel you have to arrive early.  I have put a reminder of class finishing times below.

Afternoon Nursery -  3.15

Reception to Year 2 - 3.20 

Year 3 to Year 6 - 3.25


Here are this week's headlines:

1.  Governors and staff have reviewed our current risk assessment and have agreed to make the following amendments to our current provision.  From Tuesday 4th April, Podlets Pengwin and Pysgodyn will re-merge into their whole pod.  The decision has been made as these two pods will still remain small enough to be a manageable bubble should there be a need for self isolation.  The benefits are shared staff expertise, more effective read, write inc groupings and more shared resources.  We are not considering this for Pod PryCop at this time,  as this pod would be too big.  We will, however, keep this under constant review.   As always we take advice from the local authority and it's operational guidance for schools. 

2. We were so sad to share the news of Roy Collins this week.  Roy has been such a supportive member of our school community for many years.  As a pupil himself, he loved this school and its grounds.  His family have asked for donations, in lieu of flowers, to fund outdoor furniture for the school.  There has been a staggering response and £1340 has been raised so far.  Thank you all so much for your donations, and if you would like to donate please follow this link 

3. A very big congratulations to our lovely Mr Dowsett.  He has been successful in his application to a leadership secondment, for one year, at another Swansea school.  We are looking forward to welcoming Mrs Carly Morgan to our team, who is also a successful seconded leadership candidate.  Mrs Morgan will be joining us as a senior member of staff from September. 

4. Diary Dates  - Don't forget to look at the website calendar for important dates.  Out teachers try very hard to keep this up to date.  But do let us know if we have missed something. 


Have a fabulous bank holiday weekend, and we will see you all on Tuesday. 


Mrs Caswell
