Dear Parents and Carers,
Our Attendance now stands at 91.5% (up 0.2% from last week)
Swansea Target 95%
Llanrhidian Target 96%
We have had a fabulous "I wonder week" with a number of visitors sharing their beliefs with the pupils. As a result, pupils have learnt that the world is diverse, everyone is different, yet we can be tolerant and kind.
Other visitors this week have been far less welcome. These include headlice. Before this becomes a major issue we are asking all parents to tie their child's long hair back. Here are the other headlines this week:-
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.
Parent Evening - You should have now received an invite for parents' evening. Please contact the office if you have had any trouble with this. We are looking forward to showing you your child's progress.
North Gower Partnership Music Festival March 27th - Our Llanrhidian Choir and Drumming Group will be performing in the North Gower Partnership Music Festival at the Brangwyn Hall on the 27th March 2023. This event will start at 6:30pm. Parents of the pupils involved will be contacted by Mr Goremano and Miss Weatherly. However, anyone is able to purchase tickets for this event. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased from our school office. Tickets are £2, under 12s are free.
Marchnad Dydd Gwyl Dewi March 1st - We are planning for a St David's day market on the afternoon of March 1st. Please can pupils arrive in school dressed in Welsh costumes or red tops ready for our celebration morning assembly. In the afternoon, from 2pm, we will hold a market in the marquee. If you are able to attend, you are welcome to collect your child to visit the stalls. If not you can send your child in with some money to spend. Each pod will be having their own stall and will be letting you know how you can help. Please spread the word if you know of any stall holders who would like to set up and sell their wares.

How much screen time is too much? - Balancing screen time has become an important consideration to ensure that children and young people use technology in a positive and healthy way. Screen time, when managed correctly, can be educational, informative, and a great way for children to staying in touch with friends and family. It only becomes an issue if children and young people become dependent on it and it starts affecting other things in their life. Too much screen time can affect children’s behaviour, sleep and concentration. It can also lead to less physical activity and social interaction.
