  • National Numeracy and Reading Test Information

    Published 11/02/20

    Dear Parent / Carer,

    We have developed a skills toolkit for learners in Year 7 to 9.   The website can be found here - bit.ly/stmartinsskills (students are required to sign in using their school google account to access).

    There you will be able to find copies of National Numeracy and Reading tests from previous years for reference along with parental information from Welsh Government.   All tests will take place in English and Mathematics lessons.  Reading tests will take place the first two weeks after half term.  

    Please note that the current test will follow a slightly different format online.  We would also like to emphasise that these tests are designed to be a diagnostic tool to inform students of their strengths and weaknesses so that they can target key areas of their learning for the remainder of the year.

    Wishing you and your family a lovely half term next week,

    Kind regards,

    Mr. M. Lewis

  • The Big Sleep Out

    Published 04/02/20

    The Big Sleep Out

    On Friday 31st January 2020, 19 students took on the challenge of ‘sleeping rough’ for the night at St Martin’s School, Caerphilly. They did this as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate project in an attempt to raise money and awareness for the homeless.

    As part of the challenge students walked three miles in the dark and rain in order to try and experience the average ten miles a homeless person walks a day in order to find food and shelter. Students worked as teams to build their shelters for the night and watched two short documentaries regarding homelessness in the UK. They also had basic soup and roll rations in line with a typical soup kitchen meal. Students were asked to write a reflection following the experience and shared that ‘the most difficult thing was how cold it was’ and ‘everyone deserves a home’. One student noted that their ‘opinion on homeless people has changed entirely’ and that they ‘feel sorry for those people who have to do this every night’.

    Students were a credit to themselves and the school and took on this challenge wholeheartedly with dignity, respect and care. They raised an incredible £733.28 which has far exceeded the initial target of £500. With that in mind we have now extended our target to £1000. If you would like to donate you can please do so here: justgiving.com/fundraising/stmartinscaerphilly

    All monies raised will be donated to Llamau who are the leading homelessness charity in Wales, supporting the most vulnerable young people and women.
