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:
The school has a Uniform Policy which can be viewed on the website. I would like to reiterate that:
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.
R E Rees (Mr)
Deputy HeadteacherLetter to parents – July 19
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.
Mr. D. Grounds
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.
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.
