School Fete

We have had to change the date of our fete this year; it will now take place on June 13th. We need bric-a-brac, toys and items for the tombola please. If you can help, please bring items to the school reception.

Northville Community Group

A big thank you to the Northville Community Group for their very kind donation, raised from a recent disco and raffle. This money will go towards the purchase of outdoor play equipment.


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 fortnight for this coming week will be:

Wela i chi yfory – See you tomorrow.


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.
