Croeso i Cyfnod Sylfaen.  Here you will find information about the Foundation Phase in general as well as links to each FP class.  If you have any questions or queries please in the first instance contact your child’s teacher.

Topic Overviews

This term the concept for the Foundation Phase is “Change”.   The children will have opportunities to learn that the universe and all living things are made up of matter. The behaviour of matter determines the properties of materials and allows us to use natural resources, as well as to create new substances. Understanding the nature of matter can help learners to appreciate the impact that chemistry has on the world around them, as well as how it contributes to advances in science and technology. Chemical reactions happen continuously in our environment as well as in living things. Learning how to control and apply these reactions has benefits to individuals and industry.

Pick Up and Drop Off

Each class has specific routines with regards bringing the child to the classroom in the morning and being collected at the end of the day.  Please click on your child’s class at the bottom of this page for more details.

If you arrive at school after 8.50am, please be aware that you will need to take your child to the Main Office.  The class teachers are not permitted to open doors for parents after this time.

If you wish to collect your child early, please visit the Main Office and your child will be brought to you.  Please do not attempt to collect your child from their classroom as your child must be signed out by Miss Allen.

For Safeguarding reasons, parents are not permitted to enter the school without being signed in by Miss Allen or a member of school staff.

Health  

Staff need to be aware of your child’s medical background, in particular any allergies (e.g. bee stings, dairy food), any dietary restrictions (e.g. vegetarian or Halal) and any medical conditions that are important for us to know (e.g. asthma or eczema). Parents/carers will need to fill in medical forms which are available in the main office or electronically on Schoop. All medication needs to be given to the main office, not the class teacher.

Children can suddenly become ill and therefore it is important that we know we can contact you or another adult relative/friend at all times. Please ensure that the school is kept up to date with your contact details. 

If your child is unable to attend school due to illness, please do not send him/her to school, please telephone us to let us know on the first day of absence. In cases of vomiting or diarrhoea, your child should remain at home until 48 hours have elapsed since the last episode. In all cases of contagious diseases, the school should be informed immediately and medical clearance must be obtained before your child returns to school. 

Headlice are an unfortunate recurring problem in school life. If discovered, please notify staff and keep your child at home until treated.
