Roman Road Heads to Cefn Saeson!

We are very excited that Roman Road will be joining us on Friday 16th February to deliver an online safety, cyber bullying and discrimination themed workshop to our Key Stage 3 pupils.  The band are making a huge name for themselves and have been touring the country and are due to support Rita Ora on some of her upcoming tour dates.

They will be performing as well as delivering the workshop and we can’t wait!

Christmas 2017

Cefn Saeson started Christmas with a bang as always, with staff and pupils raising over £300 for Nystagmus, thanks to the non-uniform day and Mr Cole who is walking home to Killay as soon as the buses have left.

The last day Christmas concert is always full of laughter and this year was no exception.  We couldn’t finish without doing one last video.  Have a look for yourself – click here

 

Friday 22/12/17

Friday the 22nd December is a non-uniform day, contributions of £1 per pupil please.  All money raised will be donated to charity.  After a day filled with festive fun, pupils will finish at 1.30pm, with buses scheduled to collect pupils at the earlier time.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 8th January 2018.

WATER SYSTEM UPDATE

Cefn Saeson School will be open as normal next week (from Monday 18/12/17).

On Thursday (14/12/17) we were made aware that a result of a routine sample test showed higher than normal legionella levels, of the least harmful type of legionella bacteria. Legionella is a naturally occurring bacteria and is safe to drink it only becomes dangerous when air born from showers or spray taps and this water mist is breathed into the lungs. The Bacteria is similar to Pneumonia.

Our water system has now been cleaned, chlorinated and flushed throughout the school as an extra precaution so we can provide the safest environment for our pupils and staff. In partnership with the Local Authority we will be monitoring the situation closely going forward.

The school will be open as normal next week.

SCHOOL CLOSURE – FRIDAY 15-12-17

14th December 2017

Dear Parent,

We are closing the school as a precaution for Friday 15th December 2017.

We have been informed today of a reading showing higher than normal levels of legionella within the water system.  The reading is close to the threshold level which would require us to clean the system.  Therefore the system is being cleaned professionally over the weekend and we are assured that the system will be clear by Monday.

The safety of all our pupils and staff is paramount and this action is in their best interest.

Whilst younger people are not in a high risk group, should your child develop any flu like symptoms we would advise you to seek medical advice from your G.P.

School will be open on Monday 18th December as normal.
