Spring News

Due to the current staffing levels the difficult decision has been taken to close the school from Thursday 19th March 2020. Please see here for further information. We will keep you informed through this website, our texting service and Twitter.

Our topic across the school is learning all about Wales and what a wonderful country we live in.
