Dear Parents and Carers
I write to inform you that school is aware of the current national concern about people dressed as clowns and causing concern in communities.
Like many schools in the area, we are liaising with the local police who have been very vigilant in the area in order to respond to this concern in local communities.

Staff Training Day, Friday 21st October 2016
I write to inform you that we are holding a staff training day on Friday 21st October 2016.
This day is devoted to the professional development of staff. We run 5 such days through the year. This is our third. The remaining two will be held over the spring and summer terms.
Pupils are not expected in school on this day. We will look forward to seeing them again after half term on Monday 31st October 2016 at 8.30am.
Congratulations to our senior learners who held a cake sale on Friday 30th September 2016 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Thank you to all staff and learners who supported the event as £244.54 was raised!

I hope your son/daughter has enjoyed the first two weeks back at school and settled well into new classes and subjects. A child’s wellbeing is always at the centre of our school’s thinking and planning and, with this in mind, I would like to outline some of our pastoral priorities for this academic year. Following this you will find a number of dates for your diary and a message from each of our Heads of Key Stage, outlining specific focus areas this term.
Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to the start of the new school year. We have had a very good working start at Cwmcarn High School and look forward to working with your children over this year.
I am very impressed by our senior learners who know how important their time in school is and who present to us as committed to their learning and achieving their qualifications. I am equally pleased to see the new Year 7 settling in well.
The school has recently purchased a license for your child to access the Mathswatch Website. This is a site that is aimed at helping pupils at KS3 and KS4 work on their mathematical skills. Topics are explained and exercises are provided to work through. There are also often exam type questions to attempt.
