January 2017 : Letter from Mr Jenkins (Interim Headteacher)

Dear Parents / Guardians,

A warm welcome back at the beginning of the new year!

Staffing changes
At the beginning of the year, we welcomed two new teachers to Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr, Miss Rhian Poulton (DT) – in place of Mrs. Cara Broome, who continues to be on maternity leave, and Miss Lowri Mair Davies, who replaces Ms. Lydia Jones, who has started her maternity leave.

Attendance
The school attendance rate for the first season was 95.4%. This is significantly lower than our target for this year which is 96.5%. Could you ensure that your child(ren) attend(s) school every day possible between now and the summer. Please do not take your children on holiday during term time. It is vital that your child takes advantage of every opportunity of benefitting from the education provided in our school.

Change in Dates

  • The Year Eleven Parents’ Evening has been moved from 25 January to Wednesday, 1st of February.
  • The 16+ Open Evening has been moved from 12 January to Thursday, 19 January.

You are reminded that an INSET day will be held on Friday, 17th of February.

Thank you for your ready co-operation and support.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. D R Jenkins
Acting Head
