September 2020

A brief summary of our plan for the start of the new school year:

Thursday/Friday 3rd/4th September – school will be open for new Reception, and new Year 3, 5 & 6 children.  Packed lunches will be required for these two days, with no Breakfast Club of After School Clubs available.

Monday 7th September – school will be open for all children.  Breakfast Club will be open, with fees payable via ParentPay.  After School Clubs will not be operating to begin with, but may start up as guidance changes.

We will run school in line with Welsh Assembly Covid guidelines as best we can, with Foundation Phase and KS2 ‘bubbles’ in operation, backed up by social distancing and regular hygiene reminders.

If you do have any questions at all, please get in touch; we have purposefully kept this brief so as not to bombard with too much information; we will try to keep our school as normal as is possible, just with some extra safety measures.

Wishing everyone a lovely Summer – and we look forward to seeing everyone back in September.
