As a school, we are taking every precaution to safeguard our pupils and staff. It is essential that we remain vigilant to the symptoms and exercise high levels of personal hygiene, including effective hand washing. 

The latest information is that you should immediately self-isolate at home for 14 days if you or any member of your household have a recent onset of:
– High temperature and/or
– A new continuous cough.

Use the NHS symptom checker and take advice from Public Health Wales if in any doubt.

  • Washing hands – please remind your child(ren)  to regularly wash their hands for 20 seconds (singing Happy Birthday twice = 20 seconds). To sneeze into their elbow, do not hold hands playtimes, no high fives and use elbow bumps instead.

The council in partnership with its schools will continue to monitor this situation and communicate relevant messages directly to parents / carers.  Please check this webpage for updates.
