Back to school change of date
The Local Authority have just informed schools that on advice from Welsh Government, Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th January 2021 will be classed as school planning days. It is intended that pupils will now attend school from Wednesday 6th January 2021.
The reasoning behind this is that there is a high degree of concern that schools will face significant staffing issues due to the expected high rates of Covid-19 within communities across South Wales and schools will need these days to ensure appropriate and safe plans are in place to open full time to all pupils.
For these two days there will not be provision for children of key workers or vulnerable children and home learning tasks will not be set.
Should Welsh Government make changes to these arrangements we let you know as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and have a safe and enjoyable Christmas break.
