Dear Parents/Carers,


It's been a very enjoyable and busy week.  We started the week with our pupil and staff Annual Rewards Ceremony.  We invited Kevin Johns to compère the event for us, and as expected he brought along lots of humour and laughs. I was also delighted Mr Howard Evans our Vice Chair of Governors could attend. We also invited Mr Andy Pudduck who attended with his son and daughter -in-law as we had a special award made in Ann Lewis-Pudduck`s name - `The Ann Lewis-Pudduck award` in the memory of our late Chair of Governors. 


All of our children are wonderful but I was very proud of the children nominated by teachers for awards.  Kevin Johns will join us next year when we celebrate achievements for 23-24.   Well done to everyone!


Our Friends of Penclawdd school fayre was a huge success we are were lucky to have dry weather.  Many thanks to our AMAZING Friends of Penclawdd who worked hard, setting up stalls and organising the event from start to finish.  We raised £1082.99 which is amazing and will go will go towards our new library.  Our raffle has raised £434.20.  Thanks for local businesses who have supported us.  



We are really pleased with the progress our pupils have made over the year and end of year reports are being finalised and will be emailed to you via your child`s Hwb email on Tuesday July 18th from 1pm.

Important message from Swansea council  : Free School Meals – Payments for school holidays.


Welsh Government have confirmed that they will not be making payments to parents/carers for meals in the summer holidays or beyond. Their statement confirms that they explored a possible extension to the scheme that they previously announced would cease in May half term, but due to budgetary constraints, it was not possible for them to continue with the scheme.


We understand that this will be a concern to many families, Welsh Government have asked us to signpost the following website that provides information on possible sources of financial support for people experiencing extreme financial pressures:


Get help with the cost of living | GOV.WALES


Welsh Government are also encouraging people to contact Advicelink Cymru - Citizens Advice for free impartial advice on maximising their incomes, including accessing any financial support.
