Lost Property

Please make sure you label your child’s clothes and belongings clearly to help us keep track of what belongs to who.

Here is a LINK to My Name Tags where you can order labels which you can iron on to your child’s clothes to help identify them.  Not only will this help reduce lost property and save you money on replacing lost items but it will also help to raise funds for the school as 24% of each order is donated to the school.

Pembrokeshire County Council Advice

Please read the following letter or click this LINK for the County Council advice on symptoms and the action to take.

Dear Parents

lease find attached PCC guidance on the essential procedures to follow if your child displays any symptoms of COVID – 19. It has been lovely to have the children back in school this week and to see how well they have settled into their classes. They have also adapted well to the measures put in place to maintain their safety and that of adults working within the school.


Please can I remind all parents and adults supporting their children arriving or leaving school to maintain distancing of at least 2 metres from others outside of your family group. Also it is important to use the available parking spaces and not to engage in extended conversations with other parents whilst on site. When on site please keep your children close by you and don’t let them run and play away from you. As soon as all your children are safely in school please leave the site immediately.


What to do if your child is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19)

One or more COVID-19 Symptoms:

  • A new, continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • Loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell

Action list


  1. Self-isolate for 10 days


  1. Use or Call 111 for clinical advice


  1. Apply for Coronavirus test if needed  or call 119 to arrange for a test.


  1. Collect any siblings from school.


  1. Call the school to inform them your child has symptoms and whether they have had a test. Do not visit the school.


  1. If your child has a negative test, return to school and provide proof of their result.


  1. If your child gets a positive test, then continue to self-isolate for 10 days from when their symptoms started. Anyone they live with, and anyone in their family bubble, or extended family bubble must self-isolate for 14 days.


  1. If your child does not have any COVID-19 symptoms but does:


Feel unwell with a temperature of less than 38C

Vomit or has diarrhoea

Have a loss of appetite

Return to School Update

Please click here Letter to parents August 2020   to read the letter from Mr Harries regarding our return to school next week


24th August 2020

Dear Parents/ Carers

I hope that you have all managed to have a relaxing summer.

We have been finalising our plans for our return to school next week.

Staff will be returning to school next Tuesday and Wednesday with children returning on Thursday (Dosbarth Pili Pala, Dosbarth Wiwer and Dosbarth Draenog) and Friday (Dosbarth Cwningen and Dosbarth Cadno). All children will then return to school on Monday 7th September. All children will be expected to return in their school uniforms. Playgroup will restart on Monday 7th September. We will be running our Breakfast Club but to begin with, we would ask you to contact the school to book a place and only use it if necessary for work reasons. This arrangement will be reviewed once we have settled into the new term.

As with the four week return prior to the summer holidays, the children will be dropped off and picked up from the drop off point just outside of the school gates. The school gates will remain closed. Foundation Phase pupils and their siblings should be dropped off between 8:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., Key Stage 2 pupils should be dropped off between 9:00 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. Staff will meet the children at the drop off point. At the end of the school day, Foundation Phase pupils and their siblings should be picked up at 2:50 p.m. and Key Stage 2 pupils should be picked up at 3:10 p.m. Staff will accompany children to the pick-up point. For this to work smoothly, it will be important that you arrive at the correct time. It would be great if as many of you as possible could park at the bottom and walk up the school drive. There will be no after school clubs at present but this will be reviewed.

In relation to lunchtimes, children will be eating in their classrooms before going out to play.  Children can either bring in a packed lunch or have a freshly cooked school dinner. All children will need to bring in their own water bottles. We will be spending as much time as possible on the school field during break times so we would recommend that children bring in a spare pair of old shoes/ trainers for this purpose.

I would like to thank you all once again for all of your continued support during these unique times. If there is anything you would like to discuss about the full reopening of school please do not hesitate to ring me next week from Tuesday onwards to discuss any queries that you may have.

Yours sincerely

Paul Harries
