Phased return to School

Good Morning,
I am really pleased to inform you that all Foundation Phase (FP) pupils (Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and FP SLIB) will be returning to school on a phased return from Wednesday 24th February, with the intention that all FP pupils will be back in school full time from Monday 1st March.
To ensure that our pupils’ return to school is safe and smooth, we will be holding shorter sessions on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th February, this will be followed by a longer day on Friday 26th February. Class teachers will post specific times and entry/exit details on the ClassDojo page.
Wales is still under a Tier 4 lockdown and we must therefore still abide by the national lockdown rules.
Here is a message from the Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams.… “I must be absolutely clear: we are told time and time again that our education premises are safe but it is the added movement around them that contributes to the R number. So, I must make a plea to all learners, to parents, and carers: please continue to follow the guidelines. By following the guidance restricting contact with others we are able to ensure that our children and young people are able to do what we all want, which is to be back learning alongside their friends.”
I must therefore reiterate the need for all parents/carers to wear face coverings whilst on school grounds and to adhere to social distancing which, of course, means absolutely no gathering in groups outside the school gates. I want nothing more than our school to return to some form of normality which would include KS 2 pupils returning to their classes. This can only happen if we follow the strict advice given to us by the Welsh Government and the virus rates continue to fall. If the R rate rises in Wales, then schools will once again close. Nobody want this to happen.
We must avoid more than 1 member of the family bringing FP children to and from school. If you have a KS 2 child and have no one for them to stay with whilst you undertake the school run, they can wait with me outside the main entrance; avoiding mixing outside the FP classrooms.
Please keep an eye for further information on ClassDojo regarding session times, entry/exit points and school dinners.
Thank you for your continued support during these times. It is essential that we all work together for the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and wider community.

Stay safe
Mrs Guy
