Attendance

Our target for pupil attendance is 95.7% for the school. We would like to say thank you, as our current attendance for the year stands at 95.93%! That is an amazing effort from everyone. The Spring term’s report showed our attendance was 96.11%. Thank you.

A big thank you

We want to say a big thank you to Ms. Thomas, who is currently acting as our caretaker. Ms. Thomas is very dedicated to the school and has recently added colour all around the school in the form of flowers, in hanging baskets, plant pots, and even tyres. It has really brightened up the school’s outdoor environment. Thank you.

Healthy Eating

At Bedwas Junior School, we encourage children to eat healthily and to have an active lifestyle. We have recently introduced snack containers, where children can keep their snacks for break times safely in class. We encourage children to have healthy snacks, like fruits and vegetables at break times instead of snacks which may contain high amounts of sugar.
