Dear Parents/Carers,

 

It was a great pleasure to welcome pupils back to school yesterday. They were very happy and excited to be back, though the weather was particularly wet at exactly the wrong moment for going home! I think I need a bigger umbrella!

 

Our focus in school at the moment is on keeping teaching and learning as normal as possible alongside an awareness of the potential impacts of the current Covid situation on pupil wellbeing. I am always so impressed by their – and your – ability to adapt to new guidance and arrangements. We are hoping that the additional measures we have in place at the moment, including staggered finish times, will not be in place for very long. As good ventilation has been recognised as the most effective way of preventing the spread of infection, we are endeavouring to open doors and windows as much as possible, so please ensure that pupils come to school wearing plenty of warm layers. The CO2 monitors promised by Welsh Government have arrived at school for each classroom and are in the process of being set up.

 

Home learning books are being sent home with your child/ren. This is only a precaution in case of a sudden move to remote learning. They include any log-in details you might need in the event that this happens.

 

A reminder of the changes to finish times:

Start times remain the same. The Schools’ Health & Safety Team has confirmed that as the children come in to school gradually over a 15-minute period, we do not need to stagger arrival times. Where you collect/meet your child(ren) also remains the same. Please remember to wear masks when dropping off and collecting your children. Thank you.

Polling

We have received notification that Lakeside Nursery will no longer be used as a polling station whenever there’s an election. The council has made arrangements to use The Discovery as a polling station instead of Nursery.
