As part of our ‘Active Journeys’ programme, we have decided to take part in the ‘Sustrans Big Pedal’ initiative again this year. This encourages the children to actively travel to school either by walking, cycling or scooting. Over the next two weeks we will counting how many walks, cycles and scoots each class achieves and comparing them to other schools taking part in the area. We hope all children will participate where possible and support their classes.
Raffle tickets were sent home with the children last week and unfortunately they stated Summer Fair and not Easter Raffle. Could you please help us by selling these, at the cost of £1.00 per sheet? Please write your name and number on each individual ticket. Tickets and money to be returned by Monday 8th April. The raffle will be drawn in school on the 12th April. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Please can we remind parents that we operate a nut-free policy in the school for the safety of pupils.
This year, the Welsh Government have changed how some tests are administered. The Numeracy Procedural Test is now an online, personalised test and schools can administer these at different times of the year. We have decided to administer this test for all pupils over the next two weeks. The Numeracy Reasoning Test and Reading Test will still take place during the stated testing period in May.
Unfortunately, Mrs Richards will be leaving us earlier than planned to take up a headship position in Newport. She will be finishing at Easter and we are currently discussing options with governors to cover the deputy headteacher’s role in the interim before Miss Bodenham returns in July.
