Dear Parents and Carers,


We have had a very busy week especially since the news of our Estyn inspection after half term.  We hope that parents/carers attend the meeting on 7th November at 3.45pm in the school hall.  Childcare will be available, please contact Mrs. Beynon for more info. Thank you for everyone who has completed the Estyn questionnaire, your feed back is very much appreciated. 


Shwmae Day was a huge success and children really embraced learning Welsh phrases and interacting with each other in our 'speed chatting game'.

We are proud to announce that we have the second highest attendance in the Swansea Primary Schools for Autumn term 1 with 96.2%.
