March 19th 2020
As you will be aware the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams issued a statement earlier today regarding school closures:
The minister states that they are “bringing forward the Easter break for schools in Wales. Schools across Wales will close for statutory provision of education at the latest by Friday 20th March 2020.”
You can see the full statement by following the link:
Subject to no further staff absence we will remain open until 3:30pm on Friday 20th March. If for any reason this changes I will of course contact you.
At present there is no end date to the statutory closure of schools. The directive for reopening will be given by the Welsh Government.
Staff have worked on home learning activities for all children. Details of this has already been sent to you.
Again, the situation is fast moving. You will have heard that schools may have a changing role with regards to provision for key workers. At present I have no additional information regarding this. As soon as I am aware of any further information I will pass this on.
Many thanks for your continued cooperation – look after yourselves, your families and those close to you.
