Important information for Parents / Guardians
ON-SITE TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS:
Thank you very much for the co-operation of almost all parents in ensuring that our drop-off and pick up arrangements from school are safe. I would like to draw your attention once again to the letter shared on Monday 11.09.23 outlining these arrangements in full: Pupil transport to and from school 23-24
I would like to draw the attention of a small number of parents to two key points of the arrangements below, so that we can work together in the interests of the safety of all pupils:
- We ask parents/guardians and all site-users to adhere to the expected speed limit of no more than 10mph on the school site (including the main drive to the school off Heol Gwyrosydd) at all times.
- We ask that all parents / relatives refrain from parking on the main drive to the school, before the barrier. Traffic movement (cars moving reversing and turning) in this area presents a higher risk to the safety of our pupils as many cross the drive as they walk home.
Thank you once again for the co-operation of all parents as we work together to ensure the safety of all pupils when arriving at and leaving school.
NASUWT STRIKE – Tuesday 19.09.23 and Wednesday Day 20.09.23:
I would like to inform you that there will be no disruption to the normal operation of the school on the above dates when the NASUWT union intend to carry out industrial action. The school will be open to all pupils as normal.

We will be taking individual photos of year 7, 10 and 12 pupils only, next Monday, the 11.09.23. These are to update the pictures on our data storage system. It will also be possible for parents to purchase individual school photos if you wish? All pupils will receive information on Monday of how to order personal photos. If you have any questions, please contact us.
SCHOOL LUNCH PRICES:
I hope all parents / guardians have managed to register your child on the ‘Cunninghams’ school lunch payment system. If support is required, please contact Mrs Jayne Bowen at the school office, or via: BowenJ129@hwbcymru.net. See the price list for school lunch below:

Book Shop and Coffee Morning
As part of the Festival of Literature at Bryn Tawe, Ty Tawe and Cover 2 Cover (two local bookshops) will be selling books to learners tomorrow (Friday, 7th July) during the lunch hour. Why not encourage your child to purchase a book and enjoy reading over the summer? Parents of learners in year 7 are also welcome to attend the Literary Festival during the lunch hour (12:40pm to 1:30pm).
