The deadline for submission of PRIMARY preference forms ** Monday 8th January** is fast approaching, please remember to submit your application form on time. Parents are strongly advised to state more than one preference on their forms (stating only one preference DOES NOT improve the chance of getting that school) Online applications are the preferred method of application.

Would you like to earn Time Credits to spend on leisure activities? If you give an hour of your time working at the Centre, we will say thank you by giving you an hour back to spend on something you like to do. Everyone's hour is worth the same and everyone gets thanked. There is no limit to how many credits you can earn, and the more you earn the more you can spend. Time credits never expire and they don't cost any money. If you would like further information please speak to Lynda Jenkins, Karen March or contact Reception on 029 20671420.

What is a Foundation Phase Alliance School? A Foundation Phase Alliance School is an integrated children’s centre, nursery, infant or primary school that has been identified and commissioned by the Central South Consortium to champion the development of effective practice across this important phase of learning throughout the Central South Wales region. Foundation Phase Alliance Schools have a strong track record of securing the highest possible standards for all groups of young learners and have demonstrated the capacity to continuously improve all aspects of leadership, learning and teaching within their own organisation. These schools also demonstrate the capacity to encourage, inspire, develop and support other schools and seek to empower and enable continuous improvement beyond their own settings. The Foundation Phase Alliance offers an exciting new step change in the way that continuous, sustainable professional development in the Foundation Phase is offered across the Central South Wales region. As a Foundation Phase Alliance School we offer a range of professional learning and development initiatives throughout the academic year where practitioners have the opportunity to combine observations of real time, everyday practice in our busy setting with high quality professional dialogue, collaborative inquiry, challenge and support. All Foundation Phase Alliance Schools are communities where collaborative inquiry is used to foster improvements in practice. We do not work in isolation and seek to lead by example through a model of joint practice development within the Foundation Phase Alliance and beyond it. Head teachers, senior leaders and other members of our teams also engage in direct, intensive and supportive partnerships with schools in difficult or challenging circumstances.
