Safeguarding issues

If you would like to discuss any Safeguarding/Child Protection matters, please contact Mr James (Designated Safeguarding Person) or Mrs Dumbrill (Deputy Designated Safeguarding person). All conversations will be in strict confidence.


Language and Maths Books

The children are bringing their language and Maths books home this weekend for you to see the work that is done in class. These books are one of the most important books that the children have in school – therefore they must be returned by Monday! Please return the bottom part of the letter with the work. Diolch




Cardiff Council has decided to introduce the School Street initiative for Glan y Nant Road. School Street will go live on 06th January 2020.

How it Will Work

Motor vehicles will not be permitted to drive in the School Street between 8.30am to 9.15am and 2.45pm to 3.45pm, unless that vehicle has a valid School Street Permit. School Streets will not apply at the weekends and during August. Any legitimate visitors to your property will be permitted to leave the School Street, but will not be permitted to enter the street during the above times.

It is an offence to enter or drive in a School Street during prescribed times without a valid School Street permit. We will use enforcement cameras to monitor School Streets and issue fines (Penalty Charge Notices) to offenders.

In view of this enforcement cameras will be installed overlooking the entrance to the School Streets but they will not be switched on until the 06th January 2020. The cameras will not be manned but instead will automatically identify any vehicle without a permit during prohibited times. A short video clip is then recorded of the offending vehicle to be used as evidence.

Thank you for your patience regarding this matter and for helping us make the school run safer for everyone involved.

Mr Illtud James


Money for the school

If you shop online, especially with Christmas looming, you can raise FREE donations for Ysgol Gymraeg Melin Gruffydd.

You will still get to your usual sites e.g. Amazon but by going via EASYFUNDRAISING, you will generate a small amount of money for the school every time. Over 4,000 shops and sites will donate to us when you use Easyfundraising to shop with them!

We would be very grateful for your support!

Diolch Mrs Mallett

It is with great sadness that we announce Mrs Mallett is due to finish her post as the school’s Family Officer at the end of November. Mrs Mallett has given outstanding service to the school and has supported the pupils and families of the school brilliantly. She will be sadly missed!
Pob dymuniad da i’r dyfodol Mrs Mallett!


School website

Many thanks to Pentagon for revamping the school website –

The voice of parents and the voice of the children are important to us so we have created 2 new sections – a Suggestion Box for parents and a Worry Box for children.
