BBC Children in Need – Friday 15th November

To fundraise for BBC Children in Need 2019 the School council have decided that we will have a ‘Crazy Clothes’ day on Friday 15th November.

Children can come to school wearing something ‘crazy’ along with ‘crazy hair’.

Please bring a donation to school on Friday.

If you have any costumes no longer required please hand them into the School Office by Friday 15th November.

The Nativity Wardrobe will be on display and costumes available for hire at the Christmas Fayre on Friday 22nd November in Rudry Parish Hall and in the School on a date to be confirmed.

We hope you find the Nativity Wardrobe useful and thank you in advance for your continued support.

Together we make a difference for our children of the future

Individual Photographs

Please note photo day is Monday 11th November. Please ensure your child attends school in the correct uniform.  If you would like your child to be photographed with pre-school siblings please arrive between 9:30 and 10:00 and report to the school office.

PE Kits

With the more unsettled weather we need to have the flexibility to be able get outside and take advantage of any of the brighter spells that come along. This means that the PE / Games sessions will not always take place on the same day each week. Therefore, in order for us to be able to do this, we need the children to have their PE kits in school every day.

Proposed Increase to Price of School Meals

CCBC have proposed a to raise school meal prices by 10p from April 2020. The new prices from April 2020 will be £2.20 for a Primary age child. A full consultation process will be taking place from the 18th of November 2019. If you would like to contribute to this consultation process, feedback can be sent in via a electronic form that can be found on the Caerphilly CBC web site. The Medium Term Financial Planning proposals will also be published in the Caerphilly Newsline.
