Charity Week – 17th – 21st June 2019
A whole-school Charity Week will be running next week as part of a Year 10 Welsh Baccalaureate project to raise funds and awareness of the work which charities do within our communities. Campaigns will be run for The Noah’s Ark Appeal, Macmillan Cancer Care and The Trussell Trust Pembrokeshire Foodbank. We are asking school pupils of all ages to support the campaign by bringing in pre-loved clothes which can be sold, foodstuffs for the foodbank and children’s clothes and toys which can be given to young people in hospital or sold in their charity shop. Collections will be made daily and all week during registration into Room 32, and lists of suitable items are below.
A ‘Charity Day’ is being arranged on Thursday 20th June with many fundraising events going on in around the school hall at breaktime and lunchtimes. We ask students of all year groups to please support the event by bringing some loose change and join in the fun.
Some students will also take part in local Beach Cleans for the charity ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ and others will support the local school and town in practical ways, improving the neighbourhood environment.
Larger donations of any type can be accepted by prior-arrangement. Please email or telephone the school to coordinate this.

This year for our Eisteddfod we will be selling hand made Pom Pom monsters in house colours. These are being made to raise money for the charity Macmillan Cancer Care and we are asking for a £2 donation for each monster. Students will be allowed to wear one of these badges on the uniform over the coming weeks and on Eisteddfod day. Please note there is a brooch pin on the back of these. It would be great if you could support such an important charity. Come to reception on Monday break time to get yours!
PE Lessons – Pupils with injuries or illnesses
If a pupil cannot take a full role with a PE lesson for medical reasons they are required to bring a letter in from a parent/guardian and hand it to the teacher at the start of the lesson. These pupils are still expected to bring their kit and change with the rest of the class at the start of the lesson unless it has been agreed otherwise through a conversation or email between parent/guardian/carer and staff at the school before the day of the lesson. This is to enable elements of the lesson to be adapted allowing the pupil to be involved as much as possible. It also allows them to take on roles such as coach or official and they will have clean, dry clothes to change into if it starts raining whilst taking part in an outdoor lesson.
If excused pupils fail to bring their kit, they will be expected to borrow from the PE department and will be referred for lack of equipment. The only time this wouldn’t apply is in circumstances, such as a broken leg or arm, which would make it to difficult for them to get changed.
During cross country season pupils will be expected to walk a reduced distance of the course as they need to be supervised at all times.

Behaviour for Learning Expectations
Please find below a document outlining a trial with relation to behaviour within school. A letter will be sent out to all parents when finalised.
In the interests of safety parents and older students are reminded that the speed limit on North Road is 20 mph. This speed restriction is not limited to school hours but is a permanent feature.
Parents who bring students to school by car are asked to drop off their children at the car park by the Sports Hall to avoid congestion and a greater risk of accidents outside the main entrance where there are large numbers of students entering school and buses reversing.
