KerbKraft Volunteers
KerbKraft will be working with Year 3 after Easter. They are asking if we have any parent volunteers to assist when they take the children out who would be able to commit to Thursday afternoons. These volunteers do not have to be Year 3 parents, they can be from any year group. If you are able to volunteer please leave your details with Mrs Bellew.

Spice Credits video

Our School Council have created a video to explain to parents/carers what the "Spice Time Credits" scheme is all about at our school, including how to earn credits, what sort of events we are offering and how the credits can be used. To view the video, please visit our YouTube channel via the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB1olE3it5Q or search for 'YouTube Maendy Primary' on Google.

Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight

We continue to encourage everyone to use Welsh throughout the week.  We are trying to use simple familiar phrases to

Ga i fynd i’r ty bach os gwelwch yn dda?  - Please may I go to the toilet?


Maendy is a ‘Rights Respecting School’.  The United Nation Article 28 states ‘every child has the right to have a primary education’. We are linking our attendance performance to this article.

Our school target is 94.8%. The school’s current attendance record is 94.9%. Below is the weekly attendance for all year groups:

Nursery 85% Reception 92.5% Year 1 95.% Year 2 97.2% Rising 3’s 93l.9%

Year 3 95.6% Year 4 93.4% Year 5 95% Year 6 95% SNRB 89.2%

This year, Torfaen Council’s education service have launched a ‘Strive for 95!’ initiative to improve pupil attendance and reduce unauthorised absence in all Torfaen schools. Every pupil who achieves 95% attendance or higher during each school term will be entered into a prize draw at the end of the school year to win £50 of high street vouchers. Please see Torfaen’s website for further details; https://www.torfaen.gov.uk/en/EducationLearning/SchoolsColleges/AttendanceBehaviourWelfare/AttendanceatSchool/School-Attendance.aspx
