Dear Parent/Guardian,


Farewell (for now)

This week has seen the start of Mrs Sullivan’s maternity leave. She will be sincerely missed but we know she will visit regularly during her time away – she has already been back to visit us for our Ash Wednesday Service! We hope she is making the most of a well deserved rest before the baby arrives.



We officially welcome Miss Morgan as Mrs Sullivan’s maternity cover. She has settled in well to our school family and most children already know her as she has been at our school in different roles for a few weeks now.


Thank You

Many thanks to those parents that were able to attend the ESTYN inspection Parent Meeting on Monday and also those that were able to attend our Ash Wednesday Service. We genuinely appreciate your ongoing support – thank you.


Please be aware:

  • Dogs can not be brought onto our school site as per the Local Authority Healthy and Safety requirements. If there are any issues in this area, please let me know immediately.
  • Birthday cakes – we fully appreciate that it’s lovely for children to want to share birthday cake with their peers, however, please remember that this is to be done after school, at dismissal time, supported by the collector, so the children can enjoy the treat at home if their parents / guardians wish them to.
  • Parking is continuing to cause problems for local residents. Please be considerate when parking at pick up and drop off points. Remember, that if you are obstructing a walk way or drive way, even just for fifteen minutes, this is still enough time to cause disruption to someone else’s day, or even to cause a significant incident.
  • PE Kits need to be kept in school as there is significant disruption in the school office given the number of children that are asking for parents to be contacted to bring in forgotten kit. Please also ensure that ALL items of the PE kit is labelled – it is very hard to return lost items to the correct person without the name in the item.
