Dear Parent /Guardian,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our parents and pupils for the support, understanding and cooperation that you have shown during what has once again been a difficult year so far.
We are very excited to start the next half term in our brand new school and we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our uniform policy. At Cefn Saeson, we believe that school uniform is an integral part of the ethos adopted by the school. From September pupils will be able wear our new school uniform, however, next year (2021/2020) pupils can still wear their current uniform.
Please can you ensure that pupils are wearing the correct uniform after half term. The guidance is explained below.
School trousers must be black and tailored. We permit various styles, and a slim leg is acceptable, though skinny jeans, trousers containing rivets/studs. These trousers must be accompanied by plain black, leather type material (not canvas), flat shoes or trainers. Please note that trainers must be black leather and have no coloured markings on them. If pupils are wearing their PE kit to school on the days that they have PE lessons, they must be wearing black leggings or shorts accompanied with the Cefn Saeson PE Tshirt/jumper.
We allow a single set of stud earrings to be worn. No facial piercings of any nature are allowed. Failure to remove piercings will result in the jewellery being confiscated. It is for this reason that we advise that all new piercings be done at the beginning of the summer holidays so they will be fully healed on their return to school. No rings, necklaces or bracelets are allowed. Nails must be maintained at a short length due to health and safety regulations for P.E and practical subjects such as Food Tech and Science.
We would also like to remind parents and pupils that we are a mobile phone free school. This means that pupils must turn off their phones and place them into bags as they enter the school and may only use them after leaving school premises. Phones will be confiscated by staff should the phone be seen. If a phone is confiscated on three occasions parents will be required to pick up the phone from school. Should you need to contact your child during the school day please ring the school office and they facilitate this.
Our main parent school communication is the ‘Parent App’ we encourage our parents to download this app in order to receive recent and up to date information from the school regarding your child. Once you have done this, you will need to contact the school in order to receive your invitation code.
Finally, we would like to wish you a safe and pleasant half term, and look forward to seeing you all in our new school on Wednesday 9th June.
Mrs Sian Humphries – Head of Upper School Mrs Victoria Anderson – Head of Lower School.
