Well Done!

We have once again been awarded our Platinum Level for the Eco Schools Award! They were very impressed with what we are doing, especially the distance learning activities and surveys we’ve sent out, development of the school grounds, Eco Schools outdoors and in the classes, engagement across the school with staff and children, and, within the community through our social media, website and home learning. We passed with flying colours!

Cross Country in December!

On Tues 3rd Dec, Miss Otterstead and Miss Williams took 10 Y5 and 10 Y6 children to participate in the Torfaen Junior Cross Country Championships in Ponty pool Park. The children were an absolute credit to the school. Their behaviour was outstanding and their positive attitudes and good sportsmanship towards others was nothing short of superb. The children ran their hearts out and all completed the challenging route! We now await the final results which should be with us by next week! Congratulations and well done to you all!
