Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you to all parents and carers of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 for bringing your children to NIAC for this week’s Sports Day.  Thank you also to those of you who were able to stay and watch the fun.  There was a great turnout – over 200 parents/carers/ families cheered for the children, who clearly had a wonderful time taking part in all the sporting activities – we think they may all be a bit tired this weekend!  

Thank you for supporting the PTA Preloved Uniform Sale last week.   The PTA raised £137 which represents a significant amount of recycled uniform.   A lot of navy school uniform items have now been donated to a Cardiff charity that helps other schools.  

Cycling Safety

5V will begin their Cycling Proficiency training next week.  May we please remind everyone that all pupils who cycle to/from school need to wear a helmet at all times when cycling.  Thank you.


Well done!

  • The Lakeside football teams played excellently at Saturday’s Lions Football Tournament and I’m delighted to share that the A team won!  A huge well done and congratulations to them all! 
  • Congratulations to Mrs Evans and the Wales Korfball team on winning the Tri-nations Korfball Tournament last weekend!  Well done to them and a huge thank you to the families who turned up to enjoy the event.
