End of Term Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As we approach the summer holiday, there are a couple of points I would like to bring to your attention and ask for your co-operation:

Uniform

The school has a Uniform Policy which can be viewed on the website. I would like to reiterate that:

  • Pupils in Year 7-11 are not allowed to wear jeans, skinny trousers, leggings or tracksuit bottoms to school.
  • Jewellery is not allowed in school however a watch and a single set of stud earrings are permitted. No facial piercings are allowed.
  • We do not permit extremes of fashion in students’ hairstyles. Added hair colours must be natural and subtle. Hair braiding and patterns cut into hair or eyebrows are not acceptable.

If you are concerned about whether a particular item/style is suitable then you should contact the school for advice before buying or sending your child to school.

Attendance and Punctuality

Your assistance in ensuring that your children attend school regularly and are punctual are greatly appreciated. The Welsh Government target for attendance is 95%. School begins at 8.30 a.m. and the expectation is that pupils are at their classes by this time.

Once again, thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

R E Rees (Mr)

Deputy HeadteacherLetter to parents – July 19

 

Year 11 Prom. Letter to parents.

Dear Parent or Carer,

We look forward to welcoming those pupils attending Prom on Monday 1st July 2019.

Pupils should arrive to Ysgol Bae Baglan from 5:45pm onwards on Monday 1st July, buses will be leaving from the front of the school at 6:30pm to take pupils to Manor Park.

Please accept my apologies that the pupils’ tickets have a different time on them.  This was an error on my part.  We look forward to welcoming you all at YBB from 5:45pm.

Parents and friends are welcome to join Year 11 pupils for photo opportunities at Ysgol Bae Baglan between 5:45pm and 6:30pm.  Please respect our neighbours by parking in the rear car park or designated bays. We kindly ask that no parents attend Manor Park.

Can pupils please remember that they will need to bring with them their money or cheques for official prom photographs that are ordered directly on the night.  Portraits cost £10 each, payable on the night by cash or cheque made payable to: Always & Forever.

Buses will return pupils to the rear of Ysgol Bae Baglan between 10:50pm and 11pm.

We hope that all pupils will have an amazing evening and wish them all the best in their futures.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. D. Grounds

 

Creating a pupil support network

Ensuring the level of care, support and guidance is a strong feature at Ysgol Bae Baglan. The school appreciates that not all pupils work in the same way and have created a pupil support network. This includes tailor-made support plans, flexible learning and targeted study support. The individual needs of pupils are addressed successfully and with great sensitivity. This helps them to engage positively in their learning and most make strong progress.
