Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you have all been enjoying the sun this week (and the football!). Thank you for sending your children to school suitably attired with hats and sun cream and the occasional pair of wellies as we still get the occasional shower!


HELP PLEASE!! Year 6 need many toy sheep for filming on Monday. If you can lend us a sheep, please ask your child to give them to their teachers who will get them to the film crew. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR SHEEP IS LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME AND CLASS and we will make sure that they are returned to you after filming. Thank you.



High School Transition

Staff from Cardiff High School are visiting Lakeside on Thursday, 1st July as part of transition arrangements with that school. Unfortunately there will be no actual visits to high schools this year due to Covid.

Year 6 Leavers’ Performance

Obviously, and like last summer, we won’t be able to have our usual Leavers’ Concert, with parents and carers coming into school and enjoying a staged performance by Year 6 pupils. But all is not lost! Please see here:


General Transition arrangements

Information will follow shortly on the school’s internal transition arrangements regarding next year’s classes. This is likely to be in the form of a video or Powerpoint presentation to children (in school) and parents (on the website) rather than a day spent by pupils in the new class, due to Covid restrictions.


Covid Symptoms

A reminder of the extended Covid symptoms information from Test, Trace, Protect Wales. The three main symptoms remain the same (NEW, PERSISTENT COUGH, FEVER, LOSS OF TASTE/SMELL) and require a PCR test and isolation of the sufferer and household until a negative test is received. The extended symptoms do not require either the sufferer or their household to isolate, but a test is recommended to rule out Covid if any of the symptoms are present. The ‘extended symptoms’ are: FATIGUE, ACHES & PAINS, SORE THROAT, HEADACHE, RUNNY NOSE, NAUSEA, VOMITING or DIARRHOEA. If a positive test result is received the usual rules apply regarding isolation of sufferer and members of their household.

Term dates and Insets Days

  • The last day of term is Tuesday 20th July
  • The new school year starts again for pupils on 6th September 2021

Best wishes and have a lovely weekend,
