Dear Parents/Carers


Welcome back


It’s been a short week for pupils, and I hope that you were able to take advantage of the extended break. We have a busy half term ahead with more trips, sports days, the PTA Fayre and leavers’ celebrations – we think it will fly by!


Jubilee Red, White and Blue Day

We had a wonderful day on the Friday before the Half Term break when we celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.



Cardiff Catering team has informed us that the reduced menu is going to continue for the next few weeks and possibly until July. We will update you as soon as we have further information. The Parentpay menu will be adjusted accordingly.


Holidays in term time

You may have noticed reports in the media that the Welsh Government is directing local authorities to reintroduce Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) - fines for unauthorised absences from school – from September. The issuing of fines was suspended during the pandemic. We are unable to authorise term-time holidays for pupils, so these could incur a fine once the policy is reinstated.


Relationship, Health and Sexuality Education

Attached is an overview of what will be taught in this area during the summer term. If you have previously withheld consent for your child/ren to be present at these sessions, this will be in our records. If you are unsure and wish to withdraw consent, please contact the school office.


After-school Clubs

All clubs resume from next Monday - Monday 13th June, 2022.


Best wishes for a pleasant weekend,


Rachel Mitchell
