Staff Training days 2015 - 2016

I would like to draw your attention to the following dates that we propose to use for our INSET days this year. The staff will be involved in whole school training on theses dates and school will be closed for all pupils. I hope that you appreciate that in some cases the training providers are only available on certain days and attaching these to the first day of each term after the school holidays is not always possible. I am endevouring to give you as much prior warning as possible in order that you are able to make alternativre arrangements for chilcare if necessary.

Rhondda and Tonyrefail School Proposals

I have been asked by the Local Authority to inform you that the Welsh Ministers have determined that three of the four proposals that were published by means of Statutory Notices on 5th June 2015 are to be referred back to the Council for final determination. These are the proposals in respect of the creation of the Tonypandy, Porth and Tonyrefail Middle Schools. The proposal in respect of Ferndale Community School remains with the Ministers for consideration and we expect their decision on this one later this term.
The three proposals referred to above will therefore be considered further by the Council’s Cabinet at a meeting to be held in due course, when a final determination on the outcome of them will be made.

Applying online for a school place for September 2016

As many of you are aware the Authority is our admissions officer. Pupils cannot be admitted into Gelli Primary School without following the LA admissions policy. I enclose a letter which has been distributed to prospective parents regarding the admission process for SEPTEMBER 2016.
I would be very pleased if you could share this information with anyone which it applies to to avoid any disappointment.
