In line with Welsh Government guidance, all our Foundation Phase learners from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be able to return to school from Tuesday 23rd February onwards. Unfortunately, all our other pupils from Years 3 to Year 6 will continue to access their learning from home.
**Please see start times for classes in previous post
Each of us has a part to play in making sure that our schools can stay open to these pupils and that hopefully we can welcome other years back soon.
For this to happen, please keep yourself, your families and our school staff safe by following these rules:
😷 Wear a face covering during drop-off and pick-up times
2📏 Keep 2️ metres apart from others
⌚ Don’t arrive early for your drop off/ pick up time to avoid crowding at the school gates
⚠️ Avoid congregating with other parents around school entrances and leave immediately after drop off or collection times. Please don’t be tempted to hang around and chat.
🛴 Walk, scoot or cycle to school where possible.
🚶 If you have to drive, park well away from the school and walk the rest of the way.
🅿️To help with pupil safety and social distancing, please do not park on the pavement.
🚗 Please don’t accept an offer of a lift to school from other parents, unless you have no other choice
Make sure you child understands the importance of washing their hands regularly
Please also remember:
⚠️ Do not send your child to school if they are feeling unwell, even if you are not sure if it is Coronavirus.
⚠️ Do not send them if they are showing any COVID-19 symptoms or if anyone else in the household is showing any symptoms.
⚠️ Do not send your child to school if they or anyone else in the household is waiting for a test result
⚠️ Do not send your child to school if they have been identified as a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case
Although schools are reopening to some pupils, Coronavirus has not gone away. Parents and carers are reminded that mixing outside of school is still not allowed, even if outdoors and even if children are in the same bubble at school.
This includes sleepovers, parties and play dates as this could increase the spread of the virus and lead to more restrictions.
