We have plenty of time to fill our shoe boxes and return to school by 28/10/22. Please remember gifts should be inexpensive, but will make a huge difference to a child`s Christmas.

Harvest this year

The children have voted to collect for : 


Matthew`s House a home in the heart of the city that offers a warm space for the homeless and most vulnerable. They have a café, showers, laundry and dignity packs available for anyone who needs one.

Our Harvest donations will support our pay-as-you-feel cafe Matt’s Café, with an essential top up of food donations. These donations are essential to keeping the charity going throughout winter.


 With the ever rising cost of living, they have seen a 30% increase in the numbers of people visiting Matthew’s House (just in the last month)! They are quickly running out of a few essential food items, but also toiletries/sanitary products, as these basics become harder to afford. To keep Matthew’s House available throughout this winter as a safe warm place, please help us to support this wonderful charity.


North Gower Food Hub

Our school supports our local food hub which operates from the Community Centre in Penclawdd. Items such as tins, toiletries etc can be donated to our school, they will be delivered directly to the centre. Donations need to be in by Monday 24th October. Many thanks.

Friends of Penclawdd (FoP) if you can help with this event, in any way, please get in touch with Mrs Garcia,  so we can start planning. 


Attendance : Nursery - Year 6

If your child is unwell and can't attend school please can you ring/email the school office or use the link on the school website to report non attendance.  Please can parents/carers of Nursery children follow this procedure too.  The link from our school website is here.


The  Education Welfare Service (EWO) has reverted back to the pre-covid All Wales Attendance Framework, which will also include the use of Penalty Notice and Court if appropriate. Fines are to be used in only the most extreme cases, as part of a range of options and when all efforts to engage with the family have been tried and failed and where it is evident that there are no underlying reasons that are impacting upon attendance at school. 



The entry gate into school is closed promptly at 8.50am. Any children who arrives after 8.50am (e.g late/medical)  must come into school via the side entrance and be accompanied by their parent/carer. The late book needs to be signed by an adult.
