Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : December - Article 14

Right to follow your own religion.


Happy December 1st !


We are beginning to feel very festive and the school is looking wonderful with an impressive Christmas tree in our school hall. I think this adds a special atmosphere to our Christmas assemblies and concerts.


The last two weeks I have been 'listening to learners' which is a truly wonderful experience as I hear about what the children have learnt, what has been their favourite topic so far (in any subject)  and monitor their progress. Some examples of their favourite learning has been : Religion, Values and Ethics, French, Welsh, Art, Science to name just a few.

Every child in our school is 'monitored' to ensure they are progressing well and achieving the best possible outcomes for them.  I'm very proud of our children as I'm sure you are.


I'm sure you are aware of all the exciting activities we have planned. The dates are listed below.


Don't forget to return any raffle tickets for a chance to win some of the prizes organised by our dedicated Friends of Penclawdd.

Arrangements are as follows 

Thursday 7th December early lunch for Y3-6 in readiness for Aladdin. The menu will will chips/wrap/fish.
