Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : January 2024 - Article 14 -Right to be the best that we can be.


What a great week ! Our Welsh Government visitors from the ALN Team really enjoyed our discussions and seeing `in action` how we successfully support our ALN learners , following our excellent Estyn Inspection. We are extremely proud of our school team and our good practice in meeting the needs of all learners, including our pupils with ALN . To read our amazing Estyn report click here.


We had a fabulous day at the SSFA Yr 3/4 girls festival yesterday! 16 goals scored altogether! Some wonderful team work! We were a little bit soggy but it didn’t dampen our spirit! Da iawn merched! #PencHCI #PencSPORT


Rhythm and Rhyme

Our baby and toddlers had a great session this week. We enjoyed welcoming all the new children and their grown-ups. The sessions are held every Thursday 10.15am - 11.15am for anyone who wishes to join.  


Community Kitchen 

The Sharing Table commenced after school cooking club with us this week. Our pupils and families loved it. They made delicious French Toast. 


Classes too have had a ball this week using the kitchen. Our Starfish were experimenting with Mexican and Welsh dishes and made tasty bean burgers, salsa, Welsh cakes and cawl. Our Penguins and Flamingos baked some lovely heart shaped biscuits for Dydd Santes Dwynwen.  


We received some wonderful praise this week from Bwyd Abertawe... click here
