Dear Parents/Carers,


We wish all our families who are celebrating on Tuesday 1st February, a happy Chinese New Year. If you have any traditional dress your children would like to show us, they are welcome to wear their outfit to school - it would be lovely to see them. Here's a link to a story read by Mrs Williams all about Chinese New Year


NSPCC Number Day Friday 4th February

Next Friday is NSPCC Number Day in which pupils and staff are invited to come to school wearing something (or everything!) with numbers on it.  We will be collecting money for the NSPCC on the gate in the morning and look forward to seeing some of the ingenious costumes our Lakeside families come up with!  


Covid Update

Although Wales moves to Alert Level Zero on Friday 28th January, schools will be keeping all of their mitigation factors in place until half term. This is because there are still high numbers of cases amongst staff and pupils across the City. This means that there will be no change with the indoor afterschool clubs until this point.


The isolation period will move to five days in line with the rest of Wales.  If your child tests positive for Covid 19, they must self isolate for 5 days.  If your child has two negative LFTs on the morning of day 5 and day 6, they may return to school.  If either or both of these LFTs remain positive, testing must continue until your child has two consecutive negative tests, or they reach day 10, before they return to school.


Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend

A reminder that the Big Garden Birdwatch takes place over the weekend, in which families all over the country record how many birds they see in their gardens and report this to the RSPB.  Use this  link for information


Please remember tomorrow is an inset day!


Wishing you all a warm, safe and pleasant weekend.  Look forward to seeing you all back on Monday.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell
