Clubs for Autumn Term

Club information will be shared via ParentPay and link via text by the end of the week. Please submit club requests via ParentPay by Wednesday 18th September 4pm. Of course we will make every effort to accommodate all requests, however, please be aware that clubs do need to have a limit on the number of children participating due to ratios and the nature of the activity.


School Dinners

We are really pleased with the number of children that enjoy the opportunity of having a hot school dinner each day. Please ensure that your child’s ParentPay account is in credit, not just with previous arrears paid, before they order their dinner at the start of the school morning.


Welsh Language Opportunity

We have been made aware of an opportunity for an adult beginners Welsh course ‘Welsh for the Family’. Leaflets are in the blue rack in the entrance foyer, if you are interested in further information.
