Health and Safety

For safety reasons, please ensure that children (including younger siblings) do not climb on any equipment in the school grounds at the start and end of the school day. We politely request that children and parents leave the premises as soon as children have been collected. Thank you for your cooperation.

Road Safety

Unfortunately, we have received a number of concerns from parents regarding safety on the road outside the school. As a school, we have contacted the Highways Department at Caerphilly CBC and have also been in contact with the local PCSO who we hope will be able to provide us with some measures to address the situation. We will be discussing road safety with the children in the school and urge parents to be extra vigilant when entering and leaving the school site. We would also encourage you to report any incidents directly to the police.
