CHANGE TO COVID MEASURES IN SCHOOLS
Welsh Government wrote to schools last week informing us of some impending changes in relation to the coronavirus public health advice for schools. This will bring schools into line with the rest of society with face coverings no longer required by school staff and secondary school pupils when moving around buildings and in communal areas from Monday the 9th of May 2022.
Pupils and staff who will still wish to wear a face covering will be fully supported to do so.
Other measures such as regular hand washing / sanitising, ventilation and the ‘one way’ system will continue to stay in place.

YEAR 9 OPTIONS
The GCSE option columns are available for your child to make their final GCSE choices. We have succeeded in securing all 3 choices for 91% of year 9 pupils. In order to finalise your child’s option choices, we ask them and you to complete a ‘FORM’, which is available in the year 9 ‘Team’ from 18:30 on Tuesday 03.05.2022 and will close at 21:00 on Friday 06.05.2022. You will only be able to complete the ‘FORM’ once, so it is important that you consider and choose carefully.
Some subjects will appear in several columns where some only appear in one column, so it is important that you consider everything in each column before making your final choices. Please note, Art and Design and Art and Textiles are both taught within the Art option.

Please see the letter below outlining the new health and safety arrangements as we prepare to use the new bus bay from Tuesday 03/05/22:
A reminder to parents / guardians that the school will be closed on this Friday the 29/04/22, in line with Swansea schools, as an additional ‘Bank Holiday’ to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
