Dear Parents/ Guardians,

 

Pupil Return

 

It has been wonderful having the whole school together for the last two weeks. Undoubtedly, there will be hurdles to cross during the coming weeks as we address the challenges caused by 12 months of COVID related disruption. Socially, the children will need a bit of time to settle back into routines, especially during unstructured playtimes. Some pupils have spent a quarter of their lives living during restrictions and the lack of social interaction in and out of school will have some effects on how pupils play and how they perceive one another.

 

Summer Term

 

The summer term will begin for us on Tuesday 13th April, as Monday 12th is a designated staff training day.

 

From the summer term we will be reinstating a fifth classroom due to the extra funding received from the Welsh Government for post COVID recovery as well as our growing pupil numbers. We are very pleased to be moving back to five classes and I can confirm that we will also have five classes in September, although the makeup of those classes has yet to be decided.

 

If there are any changes to our COVID related procedures due to changing guidance and legislation, I will let you know accordingly. We are expecting to follow the same systems that we have had in place during the spring term, albeit with 5 classes rather than 4.

Faithfully,
