Sponsored Walk for North Wales Cancer Care

A big thank you to everyone for their support of the sponsored walk in aid of the Awr Las North Wales Cancer Care fund.  Together we have raised a tremendous £2,399.52. Special thanks to Ellis McMinn, Maisie Griffiths and James Williams who raised the most money for this worthwhile cause.


Foundation Phase Class

On Monday 10th July the North Clwyd Animal Rescue will be coming in to school to talk to the children in the Foundation Phase.  We would welcome any donations of pet food for the animals.  Thank you.


Reception and Year 1 Food Tasting

Please can you log in to School Comms as soon as possible and give parental consent for your child to take part in food tasting.  They will be learning all about healthy and unhealthy snacks.


Sports Day

This year’s Sports Day will be held on Tuesday 11th July at 1.15pm.  Nursery (but not Early Entitlement) are invited to stay for the whole day.  The Nursery children are welcome to have a school dinner at the cost of £2.10, or they can bring a packed lunch from home.   Children will be handed over to parents at 3.15pm.  At the end of the day there will be an ice cream van and a raffle.


Tuesday 18th July – Everybody Outdoors Day

On Tuesday 18th July all children will need to come to school in their Forest School clothes. Please remember sun hats/sun cream, waterproof coat etc. We would be grateful to receive any donations of carpet, carpet tiles, bedding, curtains, voile or artificial grass.


Help please

If anyone has a lathe and would be willing to cut small discs of wood for the Foundation Phase please see Mrs Henri0Joy.


Party Day – Thursday 20th July

On Thursday 20th July, Heather will be serving a party lunch.  Please complete the reply slip on the letter sent home yesterday and return it to school no later than Friday 14th July.   Please pay £2.10 via School Comms in the usual way.


Payments for school dinners/school visits etc

As we are nearing the end of this academic year, please can you ensure that all dinner money and money for trips, swimming, snack, breakfast club etc is paid no later than Monday 17th July.  Please log in to School Comms to make the payments.


School Gateway Online Payments and Consent

Please remember to log-in each week and pay for everything via School Comms.  Parental consent can also be provided on this system.





Breakfast Club

The charge for a full week is £5 or £1 per day if you wish to arrive between 8.00am and 8.15am. The charge for the term Monday 5th June to Friday 21st July is £34.00 for the term (this is less the training day on the 30/6).   Please pay online via School Gateway stating the days clearly that the payment is for or you may, for Breakfast Club only, send the money in an envelope, clearly labelled with child’s name and days you wish to use the club and hand this to Mrs Lewis/Mrs Bellis on first entry. Please pay on a Monday for the coming week.   Please make sure you arrive before 8.30an in order to eat breakfast.


Foundation Phase Snack – Nursery to Year 2

We do ask that snack money is paid at the beginning of the term as it makes it difficult to provide a healthy snack for the children if payment is not made promptly.  We still have several outstanding payments.  Please could we have them no later than Friday 16th June.   You can pay in cash or through School Gateway.

This will be £7.00 for the term – Monday 5th June to Friday 21st July.  Early Entitlement children pay £5.60. Please note that this includes Year 2.


School Term Dates

School closes on the 21st July and reopens for full time children on Tuesday 5th September.  Nursery children will start school on Monday 11th September.
