Parent/Carer Information Newsletter – February 8th 2018

Dear parents/carers


The National School Categorisation System provides a clear and simple way of understanding how well a school is performing for its pupils, how effectively it is led and managed, the quality of teaching and learning and level of support and challenge it needs to do even better.

A colour is allocated according to the school’s needs.  Green is allocated to the top performing schools, yellow for good schools, amber for schools in need of improvement and red for those in most need of support for improvement.

The governors and staff are delighted to share with you the categorisation outcome for Cwmffrwdoer Primary School now that it has been made public.

We are thrilled to inform you that we have moved up from the amber banding to the yellow band.

Our thanks go to the staff, governors and children for their hard work and support over the past year. The move to yellow would never have been achieved without considerable efforts from the whole team.

A big thank you must also go to all of you for your support as we continue on our school journey.

Year 1 – Dosbarth Coch

Next week we will be welcoming Miss Davies back to Cwmffrwdoer following her maternity leave. Miss Davies will be returning for three days (Monday to Wednesday) and Miss Deneen will be teaching on Thursdays and Fridays. Miss Deneen will be in Year 1 all of next week and the new arrangement will start after half term. If you have any questions regarding this matter please come to see me to discuss your queries.

End of half term

We finish school at the normal time next Friday and return on Monday 26th February.

Mufty Day – Friday February 16th

A separate letter has been sent home with details of the Green Mufty Day next Friday 16th February.

St David’s Day Eisteddfod

Our school eisteddfod will take place on Thursday 1st March. Pupils may wear Welsh themed clothes including

traditional costumes, rugby/football shirts or colours of the Welsh flag.

The children will be participating in a range of competitions including art, handwriting, creative writing, class singing and group recitations; all of the winners will earn points for their houses. The competitions will be judged by a

panel of school governors.

Unfortunately, we cannot invite parents/carers into school for the eisteddfod due to lack of space.

World book Day – Friday 9th March

We will be celebrating World Book day on Friday 9th March. Children are welcome to dress up as a  book character and/or bring a copy of their favourite book to school.
