Dear Parent/Carer,

It was lovely to hear this week how much Year 3 enjoyed their visit to the National Museum in Cardiff.  I was delighted to learn how well-behaved, polite and engaged the children were during this visit, reported by staff at the museum and also members of the public who happened to be there at the same time.  Well done Year 3!

Industrial Action/Strike, Wednesday 1st February

Here’s a reminder of arrangements for next Wednesday’s planned day of industrial action. 

The classes that will be open on Wednesday 1st February are:

Nursery AM and PM

2P (Miss Page’s class, Year 2)

5T (Mrs Tanner’s class, Year 5)

5V (Mrs Vanstone’s class, Year 5)

All other classes will be closed to pupils


We have been informed by County that pupils eligible for free school meals (not Universal Free School Meals in Reception) will be provided with a voucher for use on strike day – Wednesday 1st February.


We will be in touch with a similar arrangement for the 14th February in due course.  I can confirm, however, that the Year 5 and 6 residential trip will go ahead, and the Year 5 and 6 classes will be open to pupils back at school on that day.


Lost Property

Please see attached the latest flyer of lost property.  If you recognise any, please let Mrs Ullah know and it will be returned to you.


NSPCC Number Day – Thursday 2nd February

Pupils and staff are invited to come to school wearing something with numbers on it.  Children will enjoy number-based activities during the day, and we will be collecting donations on the gate that morning for the NSPCC.  Thank you.


INSET DAY – Friday 3rd February

A reminder that Friday 3rd is an Inset Day and school will be closed to pupils.


Digital Leaders competitions and Safer Internet Day – Tuesday 7th February

Children are invited to enter a poetry competition linked to this year’s Safer Internet Day theme, which is "My Life Online".  A second competition is to create an animation about experiences online, and work for this competition will take place in school.  There is a charge of 50p for each competition entry.


Entries must be in by Safer Internet Day – Tuesday 7th February and winners will be announced the following week.


Wishing you all a good weekend.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
