New School Year in September

Please be aware that the first two days back in September are training days and so the school is not open to children. These days are on Monday and Tuesday, 4th and 5th September. School opens for the first day for children on Wednesday 6th September.

New start and finish times for children in our SNRB unit

Starting Wednesday 6th September, the children in both classes in our SNRB unit will start school at 8.45am and finish at 3.00pm.

School Fete

We would like to take the opportunity to thank parents/carers who helped out at the school fete or donated items for the day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt a lot about the running of a mini-enterprise.

Summer Holidays

We would like to wish a very safe and enjoyable Summer break to all children and their families. We would also like to say good luck and farewell to all of our year six children, we will miss you all.

Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight

We continue to encourage everyone to use Welsh throughout the week.  We are trying to use simple familiar phrases to help develop our speaking skills. Please encourage your child to speak Welsh as much as they can out of school.  

Our Welsh phrase of the week for this coming week will be:

Peidiwch â rhedeg – Don’t run


Maendy is a ‘Rights Respecting School’.  The United Nation Article 28 states ‘every child has the right to have a primary education’. We are linking our attendance performance to this article.
