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.

After School Clubs – Cancelled Today

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the risk of snow and ice from 1.00pm today to 9.00pm tomorrow, which may bring disruption across the county borough. There’s still some uncertainty around the full extent of the likely disruption and as such we have made the decision to cancel ALL after school clubs today – Performing Arts, Homework Club, Football and Netball.
