We are now well into our first term and all children, including our new nursery, have settled quickly and have begun to work hard.

Positions of responsibility in Year 6

Applications for the positions of Head Boy/Girl, Deputies, Prefects and other monitors are underway. All pupils who are interested in taking on roles of responsibility will have the opportunity to apply.


Parking outside school

Please ensure that all items of clothing including coats are labelled with your child’s name as already we have had many reports of lost items. It is much easier to locate missing items if they are labelled clearly.


We have a school account @cwmffrwdoer which staff use to share information about their classes as well as whole school information. Please follow us! Our school website is
