Dear Parent or Carer,


The Winning Class is: Mrs Taylor and Mrs Phillips Class – Bendigedig!























We aim for every class to get 100% attendance each week. Anything over 95% is good.


Head Lice

We are suffering badly with head lice in Foundation Phase. The Christmas holidays are an excellent time to help rid us of head lice at Deri View. Can I ask all families to treat their children weekly throughout the holidays so we can all return in January clear of head lice. Your GP will give a prescription which means the treatments are free.


Reception Hearing Tests

Children in Reception who have been recalled for their hearing tests will be retested on Monday December 12th.


Reception Trip to Raglan Park Farm

This trip takes place on Tuesday 13th. Please ensure all permission slips are returned by Friday of this week.


New Nursery Pupils

Nursery children who will be joining us in January are invited to attend a taster session at school between 1:30-2:30pm on Tuesday 13th December.

Nursery will not start back until Thursday 5th January to allow staff to do home visits.



The PTFA raised a staggering £765 at the Christmas Fair last week, despite competing with two other school Christmas Fairs in the town. Thank you for all your support. The PTFA will be using this money to give every class £200 towards school trips this year.

Christmas jumper day was also a great success and all monies raised will go towards improving the playground.


School Choir

The school choir have been singing at a number of venues over the Christmas period.


Thank you for your support at the public venues.

Foundation Phase children will repeat the play over two days Thursday 8th and Friday 9th to allow all families to come and watch their children. Thursday - Miss Barry and Miss Jones’ classes.

The Nursery Concert this year will be staged in the school hall at 10am on Tuesday 13th.
