ECO Platinum Award

I’m delighted to inform you that Mount Pleasant Primary School has been successful in renewing their ECO Platinum Award. Huge thanks to Mrs Chorley and the ECO team who presented to officials and were awarded the ECO Platinum Flag status for the second time. Their presentation highlighted the superb work by our ECO team which has been embedded into the life of the school. This Eco Ethos is throughout the school, across the key stages, inside and outside, a team effort from Nursey to Year 6! Keep up the good work everyone.



We will be celebrating our Eisteddfod on both Monday 28th February and Tuesday 1st March 2022. Monday 28th February we are asking pupils to wear house colours for their class Eisteddfod. Tuesday 1st March children are able to wear traditional Welsh costume or their traditional costume from their country of origin. We hope to see lots of Welsh ladies, traditional  flat caps, costumes from around the world and many rugby players. Good luck with your Eisteddfod project.


Home project  Cymru mewn Bocs!  Wales in a box.

Create what you believe to be the essence of Wales in a shoe box e.g. a game of rugby, a choir singing, climbing Twm Barlwm, a host of daffodils etc.


World Book Day

World book day takes place on Thursday 3rd March 2022. We would like to invite every child to bring in their favourite book help us develop a further love of books, storytelling, reading and reviewing. During the day we will be sharing stories, researching authors and illustrators and making space to celebrate the joy and value of books for children. The benefits of reading are enormous. We hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child and support us in promoting reading for enjoyment. We take the approach that a ‘book day’ is every day of the week at Mount Pleasant.


Our Port, Our Choice, Our Project

Following submission of the PTA bid to the ‘Our Port, Our choice, Our Project’ initiative, Mount Pleasant Primary School has been put through to the next round of the large project funding section. We are hoping to gain funds to put up a canopy to support outdoor learning. Y5 and pupils across the school have put together a video to support the bid.

Happy Half Term – Message from Miss Rutledge

Thank you for your support over this half term, we’ve had a very exciting and productive half term which has exemplified good progress in learning across the school. We look forward to celebrating St David’s Day on our return to school and moving forward with our curriculum developments. Please look out for a link to a google form which will be sent via text to parents following the half term break. We will try to capture parental voice to support us developing our curriculum. Your thoughts and ideas will be very helpful and valued. Have a wonderful half term with your friends and families.


Covid 19

I ask all families to work with school to make sure we can operate fully and keep school a safe environment. Please help us do this by making sure you contact school immediately if there is a case of COVID-19 in your household. Please email to support us with the ‘warn and inform’ process. By doing this staff will be able to look out for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 within our school community and act accordingly. 

Please help us operate fully and keep COVID-19 out of our school. It is important we all fully understand that any student or staff member with any of the three symptoms of COVID-19 e.g. new persistent cough, fever and/or loss of taste or smell, should not attend school but should self-isolate, arrange a PCR test and notify the school of this. We are asking all families to take a cautious approach.
