Developments in the playground

Workmen lay the foundations for our new adventure playground
The play leaders and school council have worked together this year to organise and raise funds for developing the school yard. This week we have arranged for work to be completed to paint the yard and errect an adventure playground for the large yard. This structure has been purchased from funds raised by the pupils who have organised our drink drop initiative, the fruit tuck shop and Enterprise week. By employing a reputable construction company the play leaders have become aware of health and safety regulations and our new Year 6 play leaders will organise activities for our pupils to play safely at lunchtimes and playtimes. They have also purchased Basketball posts to be placed in the newly painted basketball court in the ball play area. Llongyfarchiadau bawb.
The new five-a-side and netball basketball court have been painted on they yard.

The balance beam leads on to some stepping logs.
then across to a log walk and finally a suspended walk on a wire.

information for parents

To clarify our policy this document is available in the school prospectus and on the information page of the school website. Parents wishing to disapply their children from images being used as set out in this policy have filled in this form.

Posting pupil images on social networking sites.

Please can I remind parents that posting images of pupils on social networking sites is prohibited and contravenes our school policy. Parents do not have permission from parents to use images and therefore are acting illegally. I will be grateful if any images taken by parents during the Sound of Music productions this week are removed immediately. Failure to do this will result in parents being reported to Facebook and possible action taken under Child protection procedures. I hope that we can rely upon your cooperation to avoid this. An official video and photographs taken by Mrs Amanda Smith on behalf of the school will be available in September.
