Whole School Art Festival and Sharing the Learning
The school Art Festival will be happening next week on 20, 21 and 22 September in the school hall. Every child will have a piece of art on display and the hall becomes our art gallery! The hall will be open before school and after school up to 5:30pm on 20 and 21 September and to 6:30pm on 22 September. There will also be a stall selling Glamorgan Gives back Raffle tickets so bring your cash too!
Combine a visit to the Art Festival with Sharing the Learning afternoon on 22 September and see your child’s classroom between 3pm and 6pm and let them tell you all about their learning as well as visiting the amazing art works.

Keep your child safe in the car with seatbelts and restraints
Last term we introduced Constable Simon Fox who has visited the school several times now at the beginning of the day, after watching cars through the drop off zone that had children not wearing seatbelts or restraints in them. He was very disappointed by the number of parents who were not taking responsibility for their children’s safety. Up to one in three cars did not have their children restrained appropriately. Due to the large number that still haven’t strapped their children in properly he has had to keep coming back.
Last Monday morning Simon issued 8 infringement tickets to parents relating to seatbelts and Simon will return regularly until things improve. Please take this seriously and always use seatbelts or car seats for your children.
KINDO SCHOOL SHOP UPGRADE
Our Kindo School shop has been upgraded behind the scenes and the new personalised accounts are now available! You will be able to see any outstanding payments on your school account using the Fees and Donations icon. Plus, you can choose to pay in full or make a part payment on these items.
Your child’s room number will automatically be updated, so you don’t have to worry about selecting the right room number anymore!
You can still order school lunches, pay any fees or donations easily – at a time that suits you! It’s open 24/7.
More information has been emailed out about how to set up an account for any future payments to the school.

If you have a child turning 5 next year or know of anyone else who has a child and wants them to come to Glamorgan School in 2023 please let the office know as soon as possible. All in zone children are guaranteed a place.
Out of zone applications
Any out of zone applications for 2023 will to go into a ballot held on 19th October, if we have any places to offer. All out of zone applications must be in to the school office by Wednesday 28th September.
Please note: if you have a child enrolled out of zone already or a child who was enrolled in zone but you have now moved out of our zone, this does not give any other siblings in your family an automatic place at the school. Each out of zone enrolment must go through the ballot process and therefore it is essential you apply as soon as possible. If in doubt please ring the office.
