Letter from the Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers,

Time flies in education, but this year seems to have passed more quickly than usual. A great deal has happened in the school over the past 10 months, including the departure of Mr Warren, who left at the end of the spring term to take up a new and exciting senior postition in the Local Authority. In March, the School received a very positive and highly encouraging ESTYN Inspection Report, and in April we appointed a new Head Teacher, Mr Richard Cook, who will be joining us in September. Mr Cook is an experienced Head Teacher and we are looking forward to welcoming him to our school community.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff at the School for working so hard to raise standards and to provide pupils with rich and varied learning experiences. In particular I’d like to thank Miss Bodenham and Miss Slater for leading the school so ably and enthusiastically this term.

I would also like to thank you for your continued support. I consider it a privilege to be the Chair of Governors at Bedwas Juniors. The children are motivated, well mannered, well behaved, happy and have an eagerness and willingness to learn. They are credit to you all.

I hope you all have a peaceful and relaxing summer break and I look forward to seeing you and the children again in September for a new academic year with a new Head Teacher!

Yours sincerely,

Dr Nicholas Jones

Chair of Governors
