We’re currently reviewing our structure due to staff absences. Therefore, there may be changes/movements in teacher deployment next September. We will notify you of any changes as they occur.
Mrs Tunley will be retiring this term after 37 years of service – solely at St Giles. She has seen many changes and taught many pupils who are now parents. We wish her the very best in her retirement and hope that she will continue to keep in touch. There will always be a warm welcome for her at St Giles. The school will be making a presentation to Mrs Tunley – should anyone wish to contribute towards this presentation then please see Mrs Browning or Mrs Robinson.
Mr Goodchild has had his operation and is making slow, but steady, progress. We wish him well in his recovery and hope to see him back in school in the Spring/Summer Term 2016.
Mrs Ann Jones, Mrs Batley, Mrs Hanmer and Mrs Cathy Evans will all be returning to school prior to the end of this term – ready for next September.
Remember that as the weather improves your child may need sunscreen – please apply prior to coming to school – they should also have a water bottle.
School uniform is available from both sites. Please ensure that all items of school clothing are labelled with your child’s name in September
We are also promoting the use of school PE kit – white t-shirt and black shorts.
PE shirts can be purchased from the school.
Swimming: we will continue to use Gwyn Evans for Y2/3/4 and Ysgol Clywedog for Y5/6 over the year – sessions will be divided between the classes.
Gymnastics: we will continue to take Y3-6 to the Olympic Gym in Queensway next year - with Reception and Year 1 pupils receiving specialist instruction in school. We will distribute a timetable on our return in September.
End of Term:
School closes for pupils at the end of the school day on Friday 17th July, 2015.
School will open for all our pupils on Wednesday 2nd September.
Nursery pupils (in September) will come to school in one of two sessions – 9.00am start or 12.30pm start – parents/carers will be notified of which session to attend
All pupils will start on the first day of term – there are NO induction periods.
All pupils will need to make their way to their new classes on our return in September.
Fixed Penalty Notices:
The Local Authority will have powers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices of £60 for unauthorised absence from school with effect from September 2014. These Fixed Penalty Notices could be issued to address any unauthorised absences from school in excess of five school days in one term.
Prior to the summer holidays, we will be installing two netball shooters on the KS2 yard, along with extending our climbing wall to four bays (front and back).
A big thank you to Omonigho Idegun for organising the event – approximately £400 was raised.
