Melin Junior School
Mile End Road, Neath,SA11 2ED Melin

Welcome to Melin Junior School

Our school is situated in the community of Melincryddan, once the industrial heartland of the historic market town of Neath.

Melin Junior School opened in 1985, but was built on the site of the first Melin School of 1873.
There are 164 pupils and 21 staff working together in our school.

The building is open-plan (which makes it easy to share) and is surrounded by a large playground with trees and shrubs.

School watch

There has been a School Watch team in Melin Junior School since 1988. A new team is elected each year and is made up of representatives from each class. Over the years School Watch has played a very important role in the life of Melin Junior School. When we first started we were very concerned about people using our schoolyard after hours and causing damage to our property. We wrote to local residents and asked them to help us stop this happening by notifying the police every time they saw anyone in the yard.
Our next initiative was to buy toys which could be used in the playground at lunchtime. This has been a huge success and every year we order new toys. These are some of the things that we have bought: a huge Connect 4, a large Jenga, lots of skipping ropes, chinese skipping ropes, bean bags, balls, tailbacks, sacks, a tug-o-war, a parachute, bats, raquets and games like Noughts and Crosses and Jacks. Last year we bought a lot of new games for use indoors when it is raining. These include: jigsaw maps, draught sets,chess sets and games like Snakes and Ladders and Ludo.
Our next task is to have the yard repainted. We have bought a huge draught set but haven't got the board to play it on yet!

Achieved - see home page!
Our new school watch committee contains eight pupils. They are:

Myles Webb
Joedanna Davies
We have now organised the colours for year 3's cloakroom and toilets. The theme for the cloakroom is tropical birds. The boys have got blue flooring and the girls have got purple sparkly flooring. The theme in the boys toilets is woodland and the girls is ponds. The year three's chose the birds that they wanted to be on the walls.

Eco - Schools

Progress to date:
We have elected a committee made up of two pupils from each class they are
Balraj Brah & 6L
Tammy John & 5/6A
Nathan Jones & Lauren Wood 4/5Mc
Rhys George & Gina Davies3/4C
Chloe Soanes & Cory Lynch 3S
They are helped by Mrs Chapman ( caretaker)
Mrs Davies (classroom assistant, lunchtime superviser, governor and parent)
Mrs McAlister (Deputy Head teacher)
The Eco committee has recently completed an informal environmental review of our school focusing on:
☻Waste minimisation
☻Energy - insulation, heating and electricity
☻Healthy living & eating
☻School grounds
Following the review, the committee has started to work on an action plan to improve those things which they were not very happy about in the review. Details of the action plan will soon be shared with the rest of the school during assembly time. There will also be information posted on our new Eco School notice board in the hall.
Members of the committee are also busy writing our Eco Code. Some suggestion is:

☻We will put our litter in the bin or recycle it if we can.
☻We will not leave water taps running after we have used them.
☻We will save energy by turning off the lights when we leave an area.
☻We will walk to school to help keep us fit and healthy and to cut down on air pollution.
☻We will care for our school grounds and we will not walk on the grass when it is wet.
If you have any suggestions the committee would love to hear about them.
We have recently been trying to find out what everyone would buy in our Healthy eating tuck shop. We have a new type of fruit in the shop it is called raisons.
We have our meetings at 12:00-12:25 on Wednesdays.
