Spring Term 2019. Week Four

Many thanks to all our parents and families for working with the school so supportively during the last few mornings as we experienced such icy and cold conditions. Big thanks again to Mr Williams and Mr Johns for all their hard work in getting the school ready for us to arrive safely.


I am pleased to inform you that the school has been re assessed for the Health Promoting National Quality Award and has successfully achieved this for the third time since 2014.  This basically means that the school has continued to demonstrate high qualities of wellbeing, safety, hygiene, relationships education, food and fitness etc.. Policies and practice at school reflect this and our assessor was very impressed with how our children spoke about our school.


Welsh Government published schools' categorisation yesterday and you may now see this in the local press or you may wish to look at the "My Local School " website to compare schools in Wales against ours. Prendergast C.P. has been categorised as "Yellow" . There are four categories in total, ranging from Green- Yellow- Amber- Red, with Green being the most successful. The colour reflects where a school is at on it's journey and how much support it needs . Our school has just received a successful Estyn revisit, demonstrating our drive towards continual school improvement.


A reminder to our Year4 children - early start on Monday - it is a long drive to Caerleon !!


Have a good weekend everyone.
