Important Information - January 2021

Please see below details of an email sent to all parents earlier this week.


Dear Parents. 


Welcome to the start of a new term. I hope that you have all had an enjoyable Christmas break, despite how different and challenging it has been this year.  As we look towards the new year, we can all hope for more favourable times and an opportunity for us to come together again as a community. 


I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on our plans for returning to school as they stand to date. 


Monday 4th January and Tuesday 5th January 

Staff Preparation days.  There will be no pupils on-site during these two days.


Wednesday 6th January to Friday 8th January

Online learning will be provided for all pupils via Seasaw (for pupils in the Foundation Phase) and Google Classroom (for pupils in Key Stage 2)


The school will be open for pupils whose parent(s) identify as a Critical Worker.  In Bridgend, a critical worker is defined as someone who works for one of the following organisations:

  • Health
  • Social care
  • Fire and rescue service
  • Police
  • Ambulance service
  • Education

If you require a place at school for these three days please complete the Google Form via this link Critical Care Child Application. All applications must be made by 4pm on Monday 4th January.


Monday 11th January 

All pupils to return to school. 


There is lots of information in the press at the moment regarding returning to school and I know you will appreciate that the information I have provided is subject to change. If there are any changes I will let you know so that you are able to adjust your plans accordingly. 


We are looking forward to welcoming all our families back and continuing to work together to keep each other safe. 


Thank you for the support you have given us over the last few months and I wish you and your family a happy, safe and prosperous New Year.


Kind regards


Ceri Littlewood

Acting Headteacher
