Text Messaging Service

Uniform Reminder

  • School PE kit is part of the official school uniform

Special offer - shorts /T- shirt and drawstring bag only 9. Ask your child which colour house they are in so that you buy the correct colour.

  • When purchasing school footwear it needs to be: Completely Plain Black shoes or trainers not mainly black with colours.

No slip-on shoes for girls as these are very dangerous on outdoor equipment and when children are playing in busy playgrounds they tend to slip off when children are running about.

This is the official agreed school uniform to be worn by all pupils in St. Andrews Primary.

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Christmas Card Recycling Competition

St Andrews Primary School is entering a competition. Every year Newport City Council invites schools to recycle Christmas cards and the school which collects the most cards per pupil head receive a cash prize.

Please bag up the cards this week and send them into school by Wednesday 13th January, if you have time to count them and write the number of cards collected on the bag, this would be helpful but if not don\'t worry, just send them in and we will count them in school.

Many thanks from the Eco-Council
