Please find our new information booklet below. Hopefully this will answer any queries that you may have about your child returning to school. Pupil booklet and videos are being shared on Seesaw in the next hour if they have not already been shared.
Prynhawn da. Please find information about staggered start and finish times for when your child returns to school. Our full booklet will be published tomorrow during the day, however we thought that it might be helpful for you to have times ahead of this. These times apply for your child’s half group session and when they return with their full class. The times have been planned to ensure that any waiting time is reduced to a minimum and that social distancing space on our yard, at entrances and exits is maximised. More details will follow tomorrow. We are looking forward to seeing the children soon.
A few reminders and information about when you will receive updated parent / pupil information booklets ready for the return to school in the letter below. Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you soon.
We hope that you have been enjoying the Summer. Theses are pictures that were emailed to school before the holiday. If the children have any photos from challenges in June / July that you would like to share on our website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Unfortunately the gremlins have been at work (it has been a busy and strenuous few months) and the Easter Holidays for 2021 have been inadvertently reduced. Please note that on the dates shown in the End of Term July 20 pdf on the previous posting Easter holidays are Monday 29th March to Friday 9th April and a training day on Friday 26th March 2021.
School closes for Easter on Thursday 25th March afternoon and reopens on Monday 12th April 2021.
Wishing you all the best for the summer holidays.
Please see the letter below with information about the end of this term and September. An email was sent on Wednesday with lots of details about the return to school in September. Groups and settling in dates for September were texted to parents last night. All texts are showing on our system as delivered. However if you did not receive a text, please email the school office and we will get the dates to you.
I would also like to thank parents for the many, many kind messages and gifts that staff have received. We are all very touched by your generosity and support. In the difficult times many of us have experienced, those kind messages really have made such a difference. Thank you so much. Mrs Edwards
Important information about some of our return to school plans for September has been emailed to parents, including settling in dates and full-time return to school information.
If you have more than one child in school and they are in different classes, you will receive an email for each child.
At the end of another lovely week with small groups of children back at school, you may now be aware that Kirsty Williams, Education Minister for Wales made an announcement about the Autumn Term at lunchtime today. The Minister announced that all children will return to school full-time by Monday 14th September, subject to a continued steady decline of the presence of Covid-19 in Welsh communities.
Full operational guidance is being published next week for schools. There is an expectation from WG that social distancing between the children in their class groups will be limited but that mixing between class groups is reduced and adults still follow social distancing regulations. We will be reviewing our risk assessments and complex operational plans following the publication of this guidance to ensure that all pupils can be back in school full-time safely by 14th September at the latest.
At this stage I do not have any other information but we will be in touch towards the end of next week with a return to school date for your child/ren as soon as we have the WG guidance and have reviewed this.
Many thanks for your continued patience and support.
