Year 9 National Test Update

This Thursday, Year 9 will be involved in a Royal Shakespeare Company live broadcast of Macbeth which unfortunately clashes with the National Numeracy Procedural Test for pupils in classes 94A, 4B, 5A and 5B. The pupils in these classes will now sit the test on Friday April 27th at 11:10am.

Uunfortunately this also clashes with the National Numeracy Reasoning Test for pupils in classes 91A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A and 3B. The pupils in these classes will now sit the test on Wednesday May 2nd during their normal timetabled Mathematics lesson.

Transport and parking at YBB

We are currently reviewing parking provision at Ysgol Bae Baglan to ensure that our pupils are safe coming onto and leaving the school site. We have a large number of pupils who are taxied to school from across the authority and need to ensure the smooth operation of pick up and set down times. Unfortunately we still have a very small minority of parents that park on double yellow lines at the front and rear of the building and continue to reinforce the inappropriateness of this.

Like all schools we do not provide parking for parents and want to encourage healthier ways for our pupils to get to school. Our pupils benefit from an agreement with local bus companies that they can use this provision with a YBB ticket and we have got ample, and well used, cycle and scooter storage on site. From this week we are also trialling a walking bus for lower school pupils and hope that this encourages as many parents and pupils as possible to think about the school journey.

Once final decisions have been agreed on future transport plans we will ensure we communicate this to all parents and carers. During this period we will not be issuing any parking passes as this is a central focus for changes.
