We have been informed by the Local Authority that the return to school for children will now be for 3 weeks and not the 4 weeks as originally stated by Welsh Government and Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams. School will be sharing revised plans early next week.
As you know, Welsh Government announced on 3rd June 2020 that schools are to reopen on 29th June 2020 on a ‘check in, catch up and prepare’ basis. The original announcement stipulated that this would be for a period of four weeks from 29th June. The school now understands that the Welsh Government and some Trade Unions were unable to reach a common position on the fourth week.
As a school we have tried to be proactive in sharing our re-opening plans early in order for our school community to plan ahead. Although this decision is extremely disappointing, it is totally out of our control. Our aim now is to revise our plans and ensure that the re-opening is still a fantastic, exciting and safe experience for our children.
