Parents @ Ysgol Y Ddraig

As our second week draws to a close we have lots of exciting things to share and look forward to over the forthcoming term.

This week saw the first meeting of our newly amalgamated PTA. Elections for roles within the PTA were held and we are please to announce that our new Chair is Mrs K Patterson, our new Treasurer is Mrs N McDonagh and our new Secretary will be Mr G Sparkes. The PTA discussed planned events for the year ahead and we also explored how the PTA could support the school throughout this year. Thank you to all those who were able to attend. If you are interested in supporting or joining the PTA please contact either school.

On the 28th and 29th of September we will be holding parent talks for any parents wishing to come along, meet the team and find out a little more about the way we are organizing learning this year. It is also an opportunity to discuss and look ahead to the national assessments that children partake in each Summer term. We are offering two talks per day – the first at 915am and the other at 5pm. Monday 28th will be for Foundation Phase at the Foundation Phase main hall and the 29th will be for Key Stage 2 parents, to be held in the main hall at the Key Stage 2 site.

Parent Evenings will be held during the last week of half term for Foundation Phase and during the first week back for Key Stage 2. We are hoping to pilot a new booking system whereby parents will be able to book their own appointments online; enabling parents to have greater input into times that suit best.

After half term we will be looking for opportunities to invite parents into some Stars Assemblies so that we are able to share and celebrate the successes of the children.

Thank you to all those parents who applied for a role as a parent governor and congratulations to our five successful parents who are: Mr James Emery, Mrs Claire Millar, Mrs Rachel Hillier, Mr Phillip Hibbert and Mr Nathan Mullet.

All of our classes had a chance to visit the new build site before any of the major works start. We were all able to see the outline of the building, look at the most recent plans and spend some time talking with the contractors. Our next step is to select our Construction Crew who will be the ambassadors for the duration of the building project. We would also like to offer an opportunity for parents to see the outline of our new build, meet with the site management team and visit the site. There will be an opportunity for parents to come along and visit the site between 2.30pm -3.30pm on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th. All Welcome!
