Dear Parents/Carers


We hope you had a lovely half term. Let’s hope the spring shines this term. This half term we will be celebrating St David’s Day and Easter. The Friends of Penclawdd are currently organising an Easter raffle and a quiz night down in the rugby club - more info to follow.

We will be joining our cluster schools for a  special celebration at the Brangwyn Hall on March 27th 2023 at 6.30pm. Tickets will be on sale shortly. Letters to choir members have been distributed today.


Parents` evening week

This commences on Monday 13th March - your classteacher will be in touch via Seesaw to arrange.




An important message from our local policing team 


Are electric scooters illegal in the UK? 

It is currently illegal in the UK to use a privately owned electric scooter on public roads, pavements or cycle lanes. Electric scooters can only be legally used on private land with the permission of the landowner. You are, however, legally entitled to buy, sell and own an electric scooter. 

In UK law, an electric scooter is classified as a “powered transporter”, alongside products such as hoverboards, “go-peds” and powered unicycles. 


What are the potential consequences of using an e-scooter on the road or pavement? 

Riders risk a £300 fine and six points on their driving licence if they choose to ride an electric scooter on a public road, pavement or cycle lane. Other penalties and offences include: 

  • · Riding on a pavement: £50 fine 

  • · Riding without the correct licence: up to £100 fine 

  • · Riding through red lights: £100 fine and possible penalty points 

  • · Using a mobile device while riding: £200 fine and six penalty points 

  • · Driving under influence: you face court imposed fines, a driving ban and possible imprisonment 

Remember: any person who uses an privately owned e-scooter on a public road is committing a criminal offence and can therefore be prosecuted. The use of an electric scooter in an antisocial manner in public could lead to the vehicle being seized under section 59 of the Police Reform Act.
