Dear Parents / Carers,
Further to the Welsh Government Advice for schools that came out recently, our focus in the coming weeks will be taking appropriate measures to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff, parents and community and for the continuation of learning. To minimise the risk of exposure to COVID 19 and to ensure the school is a safe environment the following measures will be put in place from today until further guidance from the Welsh Government.
Schools are currently remaining open. If this changes, we will contact you via Parentmail, the School website, Facebook and Twitter. Please check these channels of communication regularly. As soon as we are aware of any changes we will let you know as promptly as we can; we are guided by Welsh Government in this situation.
Additional measures in school:
Should the UK Government enforce school closures our teaching staff are preparing to support learning from home using the website, HWB and Google classroom where appropriate. Staff are preparing topic / projects that children can work on at home if they would like to do some independent learning.
We will continue to follow and monitor advice from Public Health Wales. Current advice can be found through the link below:-
Thank you for your support and understanding. I am aware that many parents may be anxious, please do not hesitate to contact me if you are worried.
As I am sure you will appreciate, we are currently dealing with a complex and rapidly changing situation. Our first priority will always be the health and safety of the pupils and staff in our school.
This is an entirely unprecedented situation and we are following official advice from the Government and PHW. This advice is being added to on a daily basis and we are monitoring and responding to that as it is published. This official advice will underpin all the actions we take.
Whilst I appreciate that there will be a wide range of different views about how we should be responding and what actions should be taken, I hope you will appreciate that the school is duty bound to follow the official advice from government.
The situation may well change over the coming days and weeks as the Government issues further advice and guidance. We will communicate these with you – please ensure that we have your up to date contact numbers / email address.
