Dear Parents/Carers,


Key Stage 2 swimming lessons resumed this week for Year 4, following the pandemic. We received an email on Wednesday from Splash Central, who are providing the swimming training, saying: I just wanted to send a quick email to say that the children that we have in this week for swimming are fantastic! They are well mannered, well behaved and excited to learn in the pool. They are a credit to the school. I hope that they are enjoying themselves as much as we are enjoying having them. So, well done and thank you Year 4! Year 5 swimming takes place next month and Year 3 in June.


We marked Internet Safety Day on Tuesday, with children enjoying games and activities connected to staying safe online. Activities included designing posters and writing songs, raps and sketches. South Wales Police Cybercrime officers visited school and talked to Key Stage 2 children about:

  • Safe and respectful behaviour online
  • Using strong and secure passwords
  • Not communicating with strangers online

If you’d like to know more about internet safety here’s a link to further information



The school uses Parentpay for all items where payment/consent is required by the school. This includes school trips, book bags, etc., as well as school dinners. If you have not registered for Parentpay, your child will bring home the login details needed (Morning Nursery will bring their forms home on Monday). Please can you use the login details to set up an account so that you can access activities taking place in your child’s year group. Thank you.


Welsh Week Monday 28th Feb to Friday 4th March

Children are invited to dress up in Welsh costume on Tuesday 1st March, St David’s Day. Throughout the week children will be taking part in a range of Welsh activities and events. Look out for details of this year’s home task for budding chefs… More information to follow next week.


World Book Day Thursday 3rd March

This year we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March. We would like each child to bring their favourite book to school on that day. Each child will receive a £1 book token. We look forward to sharing your child’s favourite book. Thank you.


Have a good weekend.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell
