PE Kits

Parents need to ensure that their children have a PE kit in school. There are a large number of children not bringing a kit, and this results in a delay to the start of each PE lesson.

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:

Agorwch y drws – open the door

Caewch y drws – close the door


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.

The school’s current attendance record is 95.2%. Below is the weekly attendance for all classes:


Class 1 88.4% Class 2 92.6% Class 3 97.1% Class 4 93.1% Class 5 94.1%

Class 6 96.5% Class 7 95.6% Class 8 96.2% SNRB 93.3%  

Congratulations to all classes over 95%. Hopefully classes 1,2,4,5 and the SNRB can achieve this target next week.
