Where children learn to live and live to learn in an ever changing world

Dear Parents/Carers,

COVID-19 Update


Following the Prime Minister’s press conference last week, he issued the following advice:

From today should anyone have either -

• a high temperature              

• a new continuous cough,

they should not go to work or school and should self-isolate for 7 days.


Further information on self-isolation can be found at:


In line with our usual practice, if a child is unwell in school then parents will be contacted in the normal way.  If your child is displaying symptoms in school, we will be sending them home.  In these exceptional circumstances the school will take a cautious approach.


Our youngest children can be some of our most vulnerable with the spreading of AND catching of bacteria.  Please be vigilant and sensible when your children are not very well and ensure they are symptom free before returning to school.  Please be assured that the current situation is fully understood by the school and EWOs with regard to the monitoring of attendance. Attendance registers will be noted accordingly should pupils be absent for the 7-day self-isolation period.


What I will reiterate please is that YOU contact the school office by 9am on day 1 of your child’s absence, providing a reason for the absence.  Please leave a message on our answerphone; this will assist our school staff in what is already going to be a very busy period.


Please keep an eye on our website, Weduc, Facebook and Twitter for the latest information.


Finally, we have taken the decision to cancel Parent Consultations and after school clubs to minimise contact where possible.  Parent consultations will now take place after the Easter holidays during the summer term. If you have any urgent queries or concerns, we will be able to offer some telephone consultations. 


I’m sure you appreciate that the situation is changing on a daily basis and the school will continue to follow the advice we receive from the local authority and Public Health Wales and share this information as we receive it.  


Thank you for your support and patience during this time.


Yours sincerely

Debra Guy

Head Teacher
