Reminders and INSET days

Reminders

The school will be closed to all pupils on Monday 2nd May (Spring bank holiday) and on Tuesday 3rd May for an INSET Day whilst the staff undertake 'Team Teach' staff training.

 

School Times

Please can we remind you that the school day runs from 9am to 3.25pm

The gates open from 8.50am in the morning to enable a staggered entry and pupils can go straight into class. No pupils should be dropped off prior to this time (unless attending Breakfast club). Staff are in classrooms prior to 8.50am and will therefore not be supervising pupils on the yard.

Please DO NOT enter the school grounds via the staff car park entrance by the library.

We are still operating the 'drop and go' / 'pick-up and go' procedure, following the one-way system and would like to ask that parents/carers do not congregate on the school yard at present, prior to your collection times.

 

End of day pick up times are:

Pre-Nursery - 11.50am

Nursery - 3.15pm

Reception - 3.20 pm

Year 1 - 3.20 pm

Year 2 - 3.20 pm - please wait on the drive and do not go up the ramp to the classrooms as parents/carers are still not permitted in school buildings and it causes congestion for the children.

Juniors - 3.25 pm

 

Parents/carers are still not permitted into school buildings, therefore if you would like to speak to your child’s class teacher, please can you email them directly. These arrangements may be subject to change pending latest advice from Welsh Government and the Local Authority.

 

School Dinners

School dinners are £2.55 per day payable in advance. This is paid through the online RCT portal. A link to this can be found on our website www.pontyclunprimary.org.uk

To pay for dinners you will need your child's unique 10-digit number which can be obtained from the school office.

 

Please note that any payment arrears are sent off to RCT on a regular basis.

Can any outstanding dinner monies please be cleared as soon as possible. Should there be any reason why this is not possible, please contact the school office in confidence. Many thanks.

 

Sickness / Absence

The school needs to be notified of ALL absences and associated reasons. This is a legal requirement and we need to code the child's absence appropriately. Please call the school office (01443) 237833, choosing option 1, and leave a message. When leaving your reason please be specific i.e.: stomach bug, headache etc. Leaving 'unwell' or 'won't be in today or this week' will result in the school calling you to ascertain a reason. Should your child be suffering from vomiting or diarrhoea, they must stay off school for 48 hours following the last bout of illness.

 

Can I also say a big thank you for the magnificent efforts of all the staff during this latest half term. We again, had weeks where Covid and associated sickness hit the staff particularly hard, and, at times have been down members of staff, with no supply staff available, also, due to Covid. All remaining staff have willingly stepped up, taking on different duties, changing hours, classes and even phases, all to ensure the school has stayed open and no classes needed to home learn. I would also like to say thank you to parents and carers for your continued understanding in these matters. We wish you a lovely Easter and look forward to seeing you back after the break

 

Kind regards

Mr H Roberts
