We are under strict guidelines to adhere to Swansea City Council's attendance policy.

Therefore, if you request a holiday during term term, these can only be granted if your child`s attendance is over 95%.  (Only in exceptional circumstances will approval be given if attendance falls under 95%).  Even when it's your child's birthday please ensure they attend!  

In order to promote good education, please ensure your child attends everyday and is no later than 8.50am.  We appreciate your support.

iPay and school lunches

Reminder that children in Rec to Year 3 will receive a free school lunch regardless of whether they are in receipt of Free School Meals.  However, it is advisable that ipay accounts are created in order that trips etc can be paid for.  Presently, we are having an issue in our educational visits being placed on ipay.   Please bear with us as we work through this technical hitch!

If you need advice/help please let us know.


Teacher Led  School Clubs

Teacher led clubs will commence after October half term. This academic year many will be held during lunch time so children can make good use of this time.  We will keep you updated.
