Summer Term School Continued Closure

Category : Events

Dear parents/carers,

I hope you all had a restful Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term!

Welsh Government have confirmed that schools will not be open after the Easter break.  Education minister Kirsty Williams said there had been no evidence provided by scientists that suggested it would be safe to allow children to return to their full-time education.

We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the chance to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time.

As the summer term starts on 20th April, teachers will be setting learning and tasks each week for students to get stuck into over the summer term. Do remind your child to take breaks away from screens as well, and also make time for having fun and connecting with friends and family.

Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by contacting the main school reception. If your child has any issues at all, they should contact their teacher via Google Classroom so we can help.

We miss having the pupils in school, but we must continue to follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with Google Classroom, social media updates and provision for vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers.

It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s understandable if you and your child feel anxious and frustrated at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together.

While we can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep students learning and the school connected.

Yours sincerely

Matt Vickery
