“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Wrapping up for Autumn during Playtime & PE…

Wrapping up for Autumn during Playtime & PE…

.autumnWith the colder & wetter weather upon us please can all pupils have a warm waterproof coat in school every day. This will ensure that they are able to enjoy an outside break time play despite the autumnal weather. We are happy for the children to bring in wellies if they wish to change into them at break & lunch time, these can be kept in school.

It’s very important that all children have their outdoor PE kit in school for their games sessions (& after-school games club) with Mrs Townson, this should include tracksuit bottoms, trainers and a sweatshirt (plus spare socks in case socks get wet).

Please can all items of clothing & wellies be named / labelled – either with permanent pen or with adhesive/sewn on labels.
