Dear Parents and Carers,
I do hope you are all well and looking forward to a nice, restful summer break. The amazing participation and support all pupils, staff and parents have given to the school over the past three weeks has been inspiring and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. As promised, I write to you before we break up to highlight the main developments and some planning information ready for September. Our plans are well underway and are based totally on the guidance from the Welsh Government. We have made sure that the health and safety of all pupils and staff is at the centre of our planning. We have used the guidance to amend our current organisational setup to allow a full return to all pupils and students in September. The Minister for Education has confirmed that on the 14th of September attendance to school will be compulsory once again for all pupils.
The school will have a graduated return of pupils in the first two weeks in September so that we can plan, test and improve our procedures ready for a full return to capacity. These first two weeks of term are to plan, prepare and at long last, reintegrate all pupils and students back to school. Year 7 and Year 12 will be prioritised in the first instance so we can deliver the transition that was missed during lockdown. Exam classes will then return followed by each year group in turn. The plan is to have a full return by Thursday 10th September. Please check the table below to find out the date of return for each year group.
