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 

This week The Sharing Table taught our pupils and parents how to make a tasty and healthy version of a pot noodle ! It was a great hit and the children even used chopsticks ! Click here 


After School and Lunch clubs

Feedback from the children is that they love the variety of clubs and especially at lunch time as they have a choice. Lunchtime film club is proving to be super popular.

Led by Mrs Thomas our lunchtime netball club players head to Gowerton comprehensive today for a cluster tournament. We hope they have a great time.

Safer Internet Day


On Tuesday 6th February we will be joining schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2024. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers and more, to help to create a better internet. This year the campaign will be focusing on change online, this includes covering:

• Young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology

• Using the internet to make change for the better

• The changes young people want to see online

• The things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.

We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this,  the UK Safer Internet Centre have created some free activities and information for parents and carers which are available at:

Whether you have 5 minutes to start a conversation or hours to spare, there are top tips, quizzes and films which you can use at home with your child.If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with your child’s class teacher or myself as our Designated Safeguarding Lead.


Swansea Council Keeping Safe OnlineTip of the week is a reminder from last week

Tip sixteen asks parents/carers to stay updated about the technology their children are using (particularly prevalent after Christmas when many will have had new internet enabled devices) and links to a guide from the Hwb team -- click here
