Welcome back, everyone. We hope you had a super Noson Tan Gwyllt. (Fireworks Night)
Our School Council and Criw Cymraeg had their first official meetings this week. Expect a short report from them through our website next week.
Behind the Scenes
A lot of different things happening this week. We met with other schools in the Milford Cluster to plan our Digital Competency Framework (DCF) actions this academic year. You will remember from last year that the DCF was one of the first parts of the new curriculum to be released in Wales. It’s about the wider skills of ICT, Watch this video for a friendly explanation : https://youtu.be/3WKRHEUhZYY
Our Governors have been working tirelessly behind the scenes as well over the last few weeks, making changes and talking about the next steps that we have to take as a school. They are a hard-working group of parents and community members who are stepping up to make this school be the very best it can be. It will be important that we share with you just how much time and effort they are making over the coming months, so stay tuned.
I’ve also had the opportunity to observe and take part in lessons in Class 1 and Class 3 this week. Very much looking forward to time in Class 2 on Monday as well. This is all part of our work to raise the standards of teaching across the school, which will help learners to reach higher standards and be the best they can be.
I am looking at the next points raised by parents in our summer questionnaires over the next few weeks, including the after school “wraparound” provision, clubs in general, how we introduce new learners in Nursery and some other suggestions made. I am working through various actions and points as quickly as possible, but change and development can sometimes take a while. Keep in touch though if you feel something isn’t being addressed. (Or if you’re pleased with developments. That’s always nice too!)
Congratulations to Year 4, our highest attenders. Their treat this week, 10 minutes on the 10th of November.
We will attend the remembrance service at Milford Haven on Sunday. Pupils will lay a wreath at the cenotaph and other children are welcome to attend with families to represent the school at this important event. The school will hold it’s own silence in memory of the fallen on Monday morning at 11 o’clock.
Have a restful weekend everybody.
