19th November 2020Dear families,
We have this evening just revceived information that a year 9 pupil has tested positive for COVID.
We have not had contact from Public Health Wales as of yet and expect it on Monday morning.
As a precaution all of year 8 and 9 initally need to stay home on Monday 16th November whilst we await for their guidance. As soon as I have spoken to Public Health Wales I will send communication out to you all as soon as possible with their advice.
Sorry for the late message but as I stated previously we have only just been made aware as a school.
Please be patient for online work to be set tomorrow, staff have not yet been made aware of this situation so they will try their utmost to organise online learning provision during the morning.
Sorry for any incovcenience this causes. Please kee safe and well and I will be in touch tomorrow.

An Important Update From Mr Blackwell
27th February 2020Dear families,
Hopefully you have seen the announcement by the Education minister this afternoon. The good news is that the plan is for all children to return to school in September, this will be with some flexibility to allow some form of phased return in the first 2 weeks, but by the 14th of September all pupils will be back in school.
I have no further details that that you have seen on the news but we expect guidance on Monday next week. It is great to have a plan for all to return but I suspect this will not be a completely normal school as we had before the lockdown.
Once we have had more guidance and are able to use that to plan for SRG in September, I will be in tocuh, this will be towards the end of next week so thank you for your continued support and patience.
In the meantime, keep safe and well and I will be in touch later next week.
