Dear Parents and Carers - Download the letter Ltr to Parents 6th May 22 (1)
I do hope you and your family are safe and well, and you are on the road to recovery from the pandemic and the effects it has had on us all.
We are at the end of the second week of the Summer Term and we have had a very successful start, preparing our Year 11s, 12s and 13s for their critically important exams later this month whilst also helping the pupils and students bridge any gaps in education, brought about by COVID-19 school closures.
Wales is currently at Alert Level 0 and we need to change our procedures accordingly whilst maintaining safety. We are ensuring that week by week, we remove as many restrictions as possible so that we get back to pre-pandemic normality as soon as possible. What is clear is that the virus is still circulating in our community and therefore we will continue with some hygiene measures to keep us all safe.
Due to the hard work of all parents, pupils and staff we are now in a position to remove some further restrictions. It is with great delight that I can announce that the Welsh Government have changed their guidance and from Monday May 9th, facemasks will no longer be required anywhere in schools. If pupils, students or staff wish to continue to wear face covering or masks they are free to do so as a personal choice. Our school will continue with our risk assessment, reviewing and altering it when needed. We will consider the best way to reduce the spread of the virus, protect our learners and staff and minimise any disruption to education. Public Health Wales will inform the school if there are changes to the risk level and therefore the need to change our procedures.
Best wishes and thank you for your support over the past two years.
