PARENT EVENINGS

Our first parent evenings of the year are this week. Thank you to everyone who booked appointments – we look forward to seeing you! Please remember appointments are 10 minutes. Please enter through the main entrance and sit outside your child’s classroom. Nursery appointments will take place in the Nursery and Reception appointments will take place in the IT Suite. Many thanks


CCBC / ABERCARN PRIMARY SCHOOL

Violent, aggressive, abusive or threatening behaviour from parents / members of the public will not be tolerated. If this happens, you will be asked to leave the premises, the police may be called and you may leave yourself open to prosecution. Any such behaviour may be recorded and shared amongst the Authority’s departments. This may lead to the withdrawal of Council services.


EXPRESSIVE ARTS

Our Expressive Arts – “Express Yourself” performances will be on Thursday 17th October 2019. A letter with details of performance times was sent home last week. We need to respect all performances throughout the day and therefore no pupils will be allowed to leave until the end of the school day.

ATTENDANCE

It is important for children to attend school regularly. We will be chasing parents if pupils have attendance of below 95% and will be contacting the Education Welfare Officer if pupils are not punctual and attendance drops below 90%. Our attendance target for this year is 95% - Attendance forms part of the categorisation criteria of schools – Please help us to achieve well!
