Podcasting will no longer be on a Thursday after school, instead it will be at lunch times.
Polite reminder: Please can all parents/carers call before 9:30am to report your childs absence from school and give a detailed reason in line with our Covid regulations.
Bore da pawb, good morning all.

Today 21 March 2022 is a historic moment for children and their rights in Wales. From this day on, physically
punishing children will be illegal in Wales. We want to help protect children and their rights, to give
them the best start in life.
As a parent, here’s what you need to know about the change in law.
There are lots of types of physical punishment. It
can mean smacking, hitting, slapping and shaking.
But there are other types too. It isn’t possible to give
a set list of what makes up physical punishment
because it can be anything where a child is punished
using physical force. Research suggests that any type
of physical punishment could be harmful to children.
All physical punishment will be illegal in Wales.
• It will give children the same protection from
assault as adults.
• It will make the law clearer - easier for children,
parents, professionals and the public to

What happens if I physically punish
my child from 21 March 2022?

Anyone who physically punishes a child:
• will be breaking the law
• risks being arrested or charged with assault
• may get a criminal record, which is the same for
any criminal offence.
Information, advice and support is available for
anyone who needs it, to help them find positive
ways to manage children’s behaviour and to help
avoid such a situation ever happening.

I attach an information leaflet which provides further detail, also here is the link to the Welsh Government Website which also provides clarity.

If you need to discuss anything or you cannot open the document please contact the school.

Yours sincerely/Yn gywir

Due to the country being placed on red level alert for very high winds, school will not be open tomorrow. Children will return to school on Monday 28th February 2022 following the half term holiday. We will revert to home learning and teachers will use Teams, Dojo or the website to post a activities. These will be wellbeing ideas as it is the last day, of what has been a tiring half term for all.
We look forward to seeing children back in school soon, I will post details shortly of the new start and finish times which will now revert back to those that were in place prior to Christmas.
I hope you all have restful week and please keep safe tomorrow during the storm conditions.
Best wishes
Tim Kane
A reminder that we have half term from 19-27th February and we're back to school on the 28th February.
Dear Parents and Carers / Annwyl Rieni a gofalwyr

I hope you have all had a peaceful, restful and happy Christmas and New Year Break, I am sure children are now ready and enthusiastic about their return to school tomorrow.
As you are no doubt aware, Wales is now operating at the ‘Very High’ alert level and this has necessitated us reviewing and changing our operational procedures as a school, to ensure we keep our children, staff and yourselves as safe as possible. We have made a few changes that I need to make you all aware of and also there have been changes to the guidance around testing, and self-isolation that I will outline below.

Staggered start and finishes
Welsh Government have allowed schools temporarily to change start and finish times where needed. We feel that in view of our ability for children to enter school through multiple entrances that only minor changes are needed and only for our Foundation Phase pupils as follows:

Reception and Year 1
Children will start as usual at 08:50 but will finish slightly earlier at 3:10. They will enter and leave via the doors to the top corridor as usual.

Year 1/2 and 2
Children will start at 09:00 and finish at 3:20. Again, they will enter and leave through the same entrance onto the top corridor.
Please can parents dropping Foundation Phase children queue from the entrance doors back along the pavement leading to the main entrances gates and ensure children stay with you and that you keep socially distanced. Please do not arrive too early for the allotted start time and leave the school site promptly.

There are no changes to start or finish times, however we would like parents to queue along the wall close to the nursery entrance doors and keep socially distanced.

There are no changes to start or finish times, but can I ask children from Year 4 and 5/6 Williams enter and leave the school from the gate on Llwynu Lane and Mrs Taylor/Mayo and Mr Callaghan’s classes enter and leave from the bottom gate. Can parents please avoid coming onto the yard where possible.
Miss Pritchard’s and Miss Davies’s classes will continue to enter via the same gates, however, please could Miss Pritchard’s children queue from the gates up the hill and Miss Davies’s queue down the hill to avoid any mixing of contact groups.

Break and lunch time
We will be reintroducing a staggered break and lunchtime system, which will allow us to keep contact groups separate on the yards. We will explain this to children tomorrow, again hopefully this will be a temporary measure in view of the current situation.

Self-isolation and testing
The guidance around self-isolation has been changed recently, and I outline these below:

• If you or your child has any of these symptoms (a high temperature, new continuous cough and/or loss or change of taste or smell) then they should self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test as soon as possible.
• If the test is negative, they can return to school.
• If Positive they must isolate for 7 days from the day they took the test
• On day 6 and day 7 they should take a lateral flow test and if both negative, they can return to school on day 8, if either tests are positive they should isolate until they receive two consecutive negative tests or until day 10.
• Children under 5 are still not require to self-isolate or test as a contact.

If children are identified as a contact of a positive case, there is no need to self-isolate, however it is recommended that for peace of mind they undertake a lateral flow test daily for 7 days.

Breakfast Club
Breakfast club will continue as usual from Thursday 6th January. We have a safe system in place to ensure contact groups do not mix.

Face coverings
Please could everyone wear a face covering whilst on site or waiting outside the school gates to drop off or collect.

As mentioned, we are hopeful these measures will only need to be in place for a short time, however, it is important that they remain in place to ensure that we are able to operate our school effectively. It is imperative, for children’s wellbeing and their learning, that they are in school, to do that we have to keep our staff safe thereby keeping the school open.

We really do appreciate your continued support in these tricky times. If you have any question or require any further information, please contact the school or your child’s teacher via Class Dojo

Yours sincerely/Yn gywir

Today the minister for education has sent a letter to all schools outlining the uncertainty regarding the impact of Omicron on education. He has advised that all schools are to have two planning days on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th of January, this delays the start of term. This means that our planned INSET will now take place on Thursday 6th January. Children will therefore return to school on Friday 7th January. We are currently working with MCC on the details and they will be publishing a letter tomorrow for parent/guardians which we will share with you. We will obviously continue to communicate clearly with you prior to the start of term so you are fully aware of any further developments and to provide details of safe operational procedures.
Many Thanks
Tim Kane
