A very successful sports day enjoyed by all! Congratulations to our Sports Boy and Sports Girl of the Year!


World Book Day!

Pupils at St Athan Primary celebrated World Book day in style this year by dressing up as characters from books.

They spend the day working on fun literacy tasks and using their books to extend and challenge their understanding of stories.

They did a Whole School Reading Challenge and managed to read 1000 words in a day.

What a fun experience for all. 


St David’s Day Celebrations at St Athan Primary School

Pupils at St Athan Primary School enjoyed Welsh activities throughout the day e.g. folk dancing, storytelling, rugby skills and singing as well as using ICT skills to produce Welsh interactive posters.The day ended with the traditional Bardic Chair Ceremony which this year was won by Kathryn Lynch-Wilson.

A fantastic day, well done everybody involved.




Transport Information from the Vale School Transport


There are a number of issues that seem to regularly cause concern on school transport, so we are writing to remind you of the obligations of parents/guardians and pupils have when using school transport.

The wearing of seat belts is governed by the Road Traffic Act 1988 and legislation requires that all pupils travelling on school transport must use the seat belt provided. It is the responsibility of the pupil to ensure they wear their seatbelt. Primary aged pupils will have a passenger assistant on their transport if the vehicle has 16 seats or more and the passenger assistant will double check seatbelts are worn. Vehicles with less than 16 seats on primary school transport – drivers will ensure seatbelts are worn.

There have been incidents of vandalism and bad behaviour on some buses.  Pupils travelling on any service vehicle who misbehave, cause, or risk causing damage or injury to the vehicle, driver or other passengers may have their pass withdrawn.  If the behaviour results in repairs being needed to the vehicle, the operator is within their right to pass those costs onto the pupil(s) involved.

Many Thanks.
