Dinner Money / Monies into School

Unfortunately, the office is continuing to receive lose money or envelopes without names which therefore makes it difficult to keep track of payments. It is important that all dinner money is sent into school on a Monday morning for the week ahead in a clearly labelled envelope with your child’s name and amount. Thank you for your co-operation with this matter.

Baby News

We are delighted to announce the news that Miss Storey has given birth to a beautiful baby boy. Baby Evan was born during half-term and weighed in at a helathy 7lb 14oz. We would like to send our congratulations to Miss Storey and family and are looking forward to meeting her gorgeous new bundle soon.

Green Class

As Miss Storey has now started her maternity leave, Mr Nisbett will be teaching in Green Class until she returns. Mr Nisbett teaches regularly at Bedwas and has spent a considerable amount of time with Miss Storey in recent weeks which has ensured a smooth transition for the children.

Welcome Back

We hope you all had an enjoyable half-term. Yet again, we have been impressed with how quickly the children have settled back into the school routine and are clearly ready for the busy term ahead!

Please see the diary dates below for important events over the coming weeks. We will update you with exact details and times of concerts and special events as soon as possible. The Christmas Carol Services will be held in the school hall at the start of the school day or at the end of the day in order to try and make them more convenient for parents and carers. There will be two services for each for both lower and upper school with the choice of a morning or afternoon session. We hope that this will help.
