Welcome to Hendrefoilan Primary School.

Staffing Update for January 2018  


From January 2018, Mrs Debbie Tidy will be taking over Mrs Hughes’ days in Reception. Mrs Tidy will share the teaching in Reception with Mrs Griffiths covering Tuesday and Wednesday every week.


Mrs Tidy has rearranged her days to teach in Y4 on Thursdays and Fridays. This means that from January, Mrs Bews will teach in Y4 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Please note that there is an INSET day and no school for pupils on Monday 8th January.

New – Wrap Around and Holiday Club


Dear Parents,

I have linked the details of our planned Nursery Wrap Around and Hendrefoilan Holiday Club (see poster above). The Wrap Around and Holiday Club are registered with the CSSIW.

Please note that the school will be hiring the Nursey classroom to the Wrap Around/Holiday Club provider, Mrs Bev Burgess and sessions will be run by her team of staff. All correspondence, booking and queries about the Wrap Around and Holiday Club must be addressed to Mrs Burgess. Her contact details are on the linked flyer.

Mrs Burgess currently runs the Holiday Club at Llanrhidian Primary and the Wrap Around at Penclawydd Primary. We believe that the wraparound/holiday club will provide a high standard of service which will be of great benefit to many parents, however the school reserves the right to terminate the contract of hire with one month’s notice.
