Arrangements for September 2017



We have started to pack up the school in preparation for 'The Great Move' at the end of July 2017.


In order to safeguard our pupils we will be closed on Thursday, 20th July and Friday 21st July.   The last day for our pupil is therefore Wednesday, 19th July 2017.


Most of our pupils will return to school following the Summer break on Wednesday, 6th September 2017.  Pupils who will be in Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in September will be received into the hall on that date from 08:45am on this morning. You are invited to come to school at 3pm on that day to meet your child’s teacher, see their classroom, and be briefed about the arrangements for dropping off and picking up pupils.


Pupils who will be Reception in September 2017 will start school at 10am on Thursday, 7th September 2017.


From September 1st 2017, the first day of school for our pupils, access to the site will be restricted and all parents/carers, pupils, staff and visitors to Gabalfa Primary School will be required to use the pedestrian entrance located to the front of the Foundation Phase building. This information has been posted on our website.


For anyone who has missed the news, from September 2017, Gabalfa Primary School will be housed in the Foundation Phase building and both demountable buildings presently occupied by Ysgol Glan Ceubal. Ysgol Glan Ceubal will take over the Key Stage 2 building. The changes are to enable us to manage the safety of all pupils, staff, parents/carers and visitors during the construction period, expected to begin in September 2017.
