PTA Rugby Event – Friday 15th March

The PTA has rescheduled the rugby event from last term which is set to be an enjoyable day with fun activities. The PTA has already purchased rugby balls for the children to enjoy rugby sessions during the day. Children are asked to wear sportswear to school on this day and bring £1 to fund the event.

Operation Encompass

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Gwent Police Force. Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to 9am on the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, will use the information that has been shared, in confidence, in order to support any children who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

Speech and Language Therapy

The local Speech and Language Therapy team in Gwent/Aneurin Bevan have recently set up social media accounts to share tips and ideas to support children and young people’s speech, language and communication skills.

Half-Term

Thank you for your continued support this term. A reminder that Friday 22nd February is an INSET day for staff and therefore school will be closed to pupils on this day. Children return to school on Monday 4th March. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable half-term break.

Eisteddfod Competition

For Eisteddfod this year we would like children to write a story or poem inspired by a picture (www.pobble365.com/strange-town). We ask children try to link their ideas to Wales. This could be done through their use of character, location or even links to well-known Welsh stories.

A reminder as well that our Eisteddfod will be held Tuesday 5th March. We invite your children to dress up. Pupils may wear traditional Welsh costume or a costume inspired by aspects of national importance.

British Heart Foundation

On Wednesday, the British Heart Foundation visited our school and led an assembly on the importance of looking after your heart. Year 5 and year 6 had the opportunity of learning how to give CPR.

PTA – Mufti Day

Children are invited to wear non-uniform to school on Friday 8th March. Children are asked to donate toiletries, chocolates or candles in readiness for the PTA craft day.
