Please see following, regarding the new through school.

Dear Consultee,
Proposals to Establish an all-through School in Abergavenny
I write to you with a further update on the ongoing consultation process concerning
the Council’s proposals to establish an all-through School in Abergavenny.
As a reminder, the Council proposes to establish an all-through School to be located
on the current King Henry VIII Comprehensive School site, Abergavenny. In order to
facilitate these proposals, the Council proposes to cease to maintain Deri View
Primary School and King Henry VIII Comprehensive School with effect from 1st
September 2023.
The proposed new School will include facilities for:
 1200 secondary age pupil places (aged 11-16)
 200 post 16 pupil places (post 16 / 6th form)
 420 pupil places for primary aged pupils
 30 full time equivalent (FTE) Nursery pupils and 20 Flying Start places.
 Suitable accommodation for 71(16 primary and 55 secondary) pupils with
complex neurodevelopmental and learning needs within the school.
The consultation process concerning the above proposals opened on 26th April 2021,
and so far we have been fortunate to run a number of virtual consultation sessions
with key consultees, providing us with invaluable feedback. However, we are
extremely eager to hear more of your thoughts, views and considerations so that
informed decision can be made on next steps.
We are now looking to further engage with the Abergavenny community and as such
I am pleased to be able to invite you to attend an on site consultation session on the
evening of Thursday 17th June 2021 in the Upper School Hall at King Henry VIII
Comprehensive school. There will be two separate sessions for you to choose from:
Session 1 – Thursday 17th June 2021 from 16.00 – 17.30pm
Session 2 – Thursday 17th June 2021 from 18.00 – 19.30pm
I would be grateful if you could spare an hour of your time to attend one of the above
sessions, where you will be able to hear a little more about our proposals and ask
any questions / share any concerns that you may have. If you don’t have any, its
equally as important that we hear your messages of support towards the proposals!!
We would like to reassure you we are committed to delivering the above sessions in
a COVID-19 safe environment, and as such would be grateful if you could complete
the booking form to register your place at one of the above session. This will help us
to manage the numbers and ensure the safety of all those attending.

As a reminder, the Council has developed and published a consultation document
which offers more detailed information concerning our proposals – you may wish to
take some time to read this document prior to attending the consultation event.
Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to again encourage you to respond formally to
this consultation prior to 25th June 2021. Whether you are in support of proposals,
or have concerns about the proposals, it’s important that we hear from you so that
we can make informed decisions on next steps. Your feedback on this consultation
can be submitted via our online survey
Yours Sincerely
Will McLean
Chief Officer for Children and Young People

Re: Information regarding a confirmed case of coronavirus in Deri School

We have been informed of a confirmed case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Deri View Primary School

Deri view Primary School remains open. It is working closely with the Local Authority and NHS Wales Test, Trace and Protect to ensure that all the appropriate measures are in place to protect students, staff and the wider community. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and to provide advice on how to support your child.

All close contacts of the case have been identified and have received appropriate advice to self-isolate. Your child has not been identified as a close contact and therefore does not need to self-isolate. This is because your child’s last contact with the case was more than 48 hrs before the case was identified.

However, as a precaution, please be alert for any symptoms of COVID-19:
A new or continuous cough
A high temperature
A loss of or change to sense of smell or taste

Also additional wider range of symptoms
Excessive tiredness
Persistent Headache
Shortness of breath
Aching muscles
Change of symptoms since last test
Flu like symptoms

You may also arrange to have you child tested if you wish. If you choose to have your child tested you must inform the test centre that your child may be a ‘back-contact’ with the case (i.e. before the 48hr infectious period).

Book a test for them by phoning 119/0300 0303 1222 or through the online portal:

If your child develops any of these symptoms, even if they are mild:
Inform the school that they are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms and that you have requested a test
Your child should self-isolate for 10 days from when their symptoms started
All other household members should isolate for 10 days from when your child developed symptoms
Do not visit a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital but if you require medical advice please contact NHS 111 or telephone your GP; if there is a medical emergency phone 999
Please follow the advice provided when your child receives their test result

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading, there are things that everyone in your family can do to help. These include:
washing hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
using hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
washing hands as soon as they get home
covering their mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not their hands) when they cough or sneeze
putting used tissues in the bin immediately and washing hands afterwards

Further information on symptoms and self-isolation can be found here
Further formation on Test, Trace, Protect can be found here

[05/05/21]   A reminder to parents and carers
Please remember to contact us on 01873 735010 if your child will be absent from school on that day. This needs to be done by 9.30am every day of their absence/illness. If they have a medical appointment the office will need to see a copy of the letter or appointment card. This is for first response and safeguarding reasons.
If you are taking your child out of school for a holiday or longer absence, please complete a form supplied by the office so that we are aware of this.
Thank you for your cooperation

[04/27/21]   We are sad to say that our forest school area has been used in the night by a group of people, and items have been damaged, and glass broken making the area unsafe for children to use. Unfortunately this is not the first time this has happened and we will be reporting it to the police. Please contact the school if you have any information that could help us. Thank you

[03/26/21]   Prynhawn da pawb, good afternoon all.

Well we reached the end of a very difficult and challenging term for everyone, especially our children. However, we are so pleased to welcome everyone back, they have been so happy to meet and chat and catch up with their friends. It has truly been a joy and privilege to be in school.
Thank you all for your help and support over the last 3 months, it is appreciated by everyone here.

I have made a plea in our newsletter for parents who would like to take a more active part in the progress of our wonderful school, to think about becoming a parent governor. We would love to hear from you. Your voices and views are so important if we are going to continue with the progress we have made over the last few years.
So, I hope you all have a restful and happy Easter break, don't forget Monday 12th April is a training day, so we will see all children bright, breezy and smiley as usual on Tuesday 13th.
Happy Easter everyone.

[03/18/21]   Tomorrow (friday19th) is COMIC RELIEF DAY! Why not celebrate by wearing something RED to school. Suggested donation £1

[03/15/21]   Good evening everyone.
Well, what a wonderful day! We were all back together as one big happy family. The children were their stunningly brilliant selves, but. With even bigger smiles on their faces than usual! Everyone in school had a great big skip in their step and the noise of their incessant chatter as they caught up with old friends filled us all with joy! It was the best of days!
Just a few little reminders, please can you ensure children are brought to school just at the right time, too early and we have a crowd and too late and our reception area gets full. It is important everyone leaves the area as soon as they have dropped off, Wales still has very tight restrictions in place which have to be followed.
Friday is Comic Relief day. We are celebrating by asking children to wear something red and contribute a minimum of £1.
Thank you all for your continued support.

[03/08/21]   Return to School – KS2 – 15th March 2021

It has been such a long time, but at last and following the successful return of our Foundation Phase pupils, our Key Stage 2 pupils will return to school on Monday 15th March. We all cannot wait to have all our children back in school. Thank you for the wonderful job you have all done in engaging children with their home learning during this time, and whilst I know you will miss them dearly, I am sure, you too happy that they are returning to school!

There will little change from Autumn term with the staggered starts and finishes continuing as set out below. All of our risk reduction measures remain in place to ensure the continuing safety of children and staff, including a focus on hand washing, non-mixing of contact groups, separate break and lunch times for each class, social distancing of staff outside of the contact groups and the mandatory wearing of masks by staff in communal areas.

Please can you ensure you bring your children to school promptly and not too early, if you are late for your specified entry time then children must be brought to the main reception area to be signed in.

We intend to use the outdoors as much as possible; therefore, children are able to wear trainers and leggings/tracksuit bottoms with a Deri View top for the present time. Children are also able to book hot lunches and the current menu is on our website. Please note if you are entitled to free school meals, MCC will continue to pay you directly, therefore you will need to book and pay for school lunches.

In line with WG guidance, can I please ask parents to wear facemasks whilst on the school site and whilst directly outside the school premises waiting with your children, to enter school. Please also make sure you socially distance and leave the site as quickly as possible. It is important to note that no other Government restrictions have been relaxed and therefore, once you drop your children at school or collect your children that you return home, even though children are returning to school they should not be mixing outside. Everyone has a part to play if we are to ensure that the reduction in community infections continues to decrease and beat this virus!

We can’t wait for the noise, chitter chatter and hullabaloo of children as they meet their friends and have time to talk, play and catch up, putting smiles on their faces. As we all know here, happy children learn!

Should you have any questions regarding the reopening please contact us.

Yours sincerely/Yn gywir
