*** Last Updated: 16/06/2020 at 11:06 GMT ***

Next week we will send out to all parents / carers a detailed schedule by post on which day your son / daughter can attend school when we re-open on the 29th June.  Please be assured that we are adhering to the strict guidelines for re-opening as set out by Welsh Government.

The brief details to date are:

 

 w/c 29/06 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Year Group Year 10 Year 10 Year 7 Year 8 Year 9
Timings of the School Day 8.45a.m – 12.45pm

Pupils will be placed in bubbles of ‘9’ with the same teacher and same children for the duration of the 4 weeks. Children in Years 7,8 and 9 will be grouped with members of their form class. However, year 10 will be grouped by ability sets.

Please find below a video link to our classroom setup arrangements.

    With regards to year 10 pupils who were supposed to take some exams this year, will they get their predicted grades in line with year 11 students?
    Also, will their return be just as stated a catch up and check in phase or will they actually be doing core curriculum work in readiness for year 11?
    As of yet I have received no letter and it is now the 20th June.

    Can you please let me know what will happen during the 4 hours a week that the pupil attend school?
    Will they actually be covering any of the syllabus with a teacher or will they receive support for the home schooling work already set online?
    Thanks!

    Hi, I originally indicated that my child would not be returning on 29th June as I needed more information to make my decision. With the information which is now being circulated I may change my mind. As such is my child able to return to school on 29th June if I am satisfied with the procedures being put in place.

      Yes of course – If you could let us know if you change your mind we would be grateful but we understand that the situation is very changeable and you may feel unable to commit at the moment.

      We are currently discussing this issue with the local authority and the bus company. We are hoping that there will be provision and will let everyone know as soon as we have confirmation.

      Hi Jane,

      Thank you for your message, we will be introducing a ‘relaxed’ uniform policy. Students will be expected to come in black trousers and shirt, no tie. Further details will be enclosed within the letter we are sending out to all parents/carers.

      Kind regards,

      We will not be expecting the pupils to wear full uniform or parents to purchase anything new. We will be announcing the details shortly.
