School Closure Update December 2021
Following a variety of meetings with the Local Authority we have just received information that we are to revert to online learning from Monday 20th December
Therefore we will only be offering provision to keyworker and vulnerable pupils. We have posted an online booking form onto the website. This will be in key information – COVID19. We have also attached a link to the booking form below. Please complete the booking form if you are eligible and wish your child to attend from 20th December to 22nd December. We apologise for the short notice but the booking form will close at 11am tomorrow 17th December so we can make the necessary arrangements for Monday.
For all other pupils there will be online learning available on your child’s online learning platform- either Seesaw or Google classroom. If there are any problems with access or codes, please contact your child’s class teacher tomorrow.
I will send a further letter tomorrow in regards to online learning, information for keyworker pupils and updates for January. However, in the first instance I wanted all parents to be aware we were closing and in receipt of the Conwy letter.
Many thanks for your continued support

Dear Parent / Carer
We sent out a disclaimer form to you last week. I wanted to give you enough time to complete the form. Unfortunately, mu attempt to be prepared backfired when the Local Authority sent out revised guidance late on Friday afternoon. I would therefore kindle request that you complete a second version, please see the link below, as soon as possible .There have been two additional symptoms added to this.
I apologise for the confusion and inconvenience this may have caused

Online Safety at Home
With many children now having increased access to the internet, this campaign intends to provide families with support and resources to explore online safety issues with their children.
The NCA have provided home activity packs for parents and carers to work on with their children. Each pack contains two 15-minute simple and fun activities, designed to be delivered using ‘Thinkuknow’ content. Read the full article below.
