Welcome Back Blog

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back!  We have been busy getting ready for the pupil’s return, and as always will be launching our new whole school topic with lots of fun and excitement. 


This term marks the official start of the “New Curriculum for Wales”.  All schools are expected to summarise and publish their curriculum offer, and you can access ours via our Curriculum Summary Page on our website.


Each Pod has a new team this term, and they will be sending you a welcome video and information about the term ahead.  Unfortunately Mr Dowsett is not able to join us immediately this week as he has been struck down with Covid.  However, we very much hope he will be back, fighting fit, very soon.


We are very much hoping for a “normal” year and will therefore resume our high expectations of attendance and punctuality so that your child can reach their potential.  For more information on attendance please visit our dedicated web-page by clicking here. Our pupil and well-being officer, Mrs Froom, will be in touch if we have concerns about your child’s attendance so we can discuss what support is available. 


As the restrictions are no longer needed, we do not need a "window" of  pick up.  As a result we ask all parents to collect their children by 3.30 every day from September.  Please see Pod pick up times below.

Pod Pengwin  - 3.20 to 3.30

Pod Pysgodyn - 3.20 - 3.30

Pod PryCop - 3.25 - 3.30

Please ensure your child is dropped off in school by 8.50 each morning ready for registration by 8.55. 


Free Breakfast Club runs from 8.25 to 8.55 in the school hall and this is available from nursery to year 6.  If you drop your child off before this time you will be accessing the paid “Early Bird Craft Club” which costs £20 per half term for the first child and £10 for each sibling.  


We have a new bus escort this term.  Mrs Carol Veck is taking over from our lovely Pat, and will be learning the ropes this week. 


As always please look out for our “Friday Blog” and keep updated via our website calendar.  We are looking forward to expanding our community events this term and will keep you posted.  We are very much looking forward to our marquee which is an invaluable resource for us as a school. 


See you all tomorrow,

Kind regards

Mrs Caswell
