Childcare for Key worker information For Summer Holidays
Reopening as a school
I'm sure you are eagerly awaiting information regarding Glannau Gwaun reopening. We have received guidelines from Welsh Government today, these state that 'there is an expectation for schools to offer the opportunity for pupils to attend school on three occasions before the summer holidays.' We will have a maximum of one third of our pupils on site at any one time. This allows us to have classrooms with no more than seven pupils in during one day.
The provisional reopening looks as follows:
Your child will be offered one day a week for 4 weeks from the 29th June. It will be the same day each week.
There will be a professional cleaner on site during the day.
There will be hand sanitising stations throughout the school.
Every classroom has 3 sinks allowing regular hand washing.
Pupils will only come into contact with the other six pupils in their group and the two adults teaching the group.
Further organisational information will be sent to you as soon as updated pupil numbers have been received.
Thank you to those parents who have completed the reopening survey. This has helped us to make the decisions made already. It is essential for the next phase of organisation that parents complete the VERY brief form below.
Please take care and keep safe,
Summer Term in Lock down
I hope you all have had a restful Easter break. Tomorrow is the beginning of our very first home learning summer term!
It’s definitely a strange and challenging time, so it’s ok if you and your child feel wobbly and worried at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together. Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by emailing me JonesM775@hwbmail.net or dojoing your child’s class teacher.
We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with home learning for the foreseeable future.
Just because we’re not all in the same building, doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together! Your children will have lots of activities they can get stuck into over the summer term – so keep a close eye on Hwb, Dojo and Google classroom (Year 5 and 6)
We can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep your child’s learning and our school community connected. Staff will be phoning every family to see how things are going The number might appear as a withheld number. Please answer the call because we have a responsibility to speak to all families often.
Keep safe and take care,

20200326: Pembrokeshire County Council Childcare arrangements
Pembrokeshire County Council Childcare arrangements
Pembrokeshire County Council is introducing aChildcare hub-based model for critical workers and the families of vulnerable learners.
The move follows the UK Government’s restrictions placed on movement this week and the need for greater social distancing measures.
From 30 March 2020, Childcare will only be available to eligible critical workers and at specific locations within the county.
Places must be booked online – and children from vulnerable families will be contacted by a key worker and offered places.
Each setting will be open from 8:00am to 4:00pm until 20 April, after which time all settings will be open from 7:00am – 6:00pm. The online Childcare booking applications will be processed centrally on a weekly basis.
There will be no option to turn up without a confirmed booking as most critical workers will know their shifts in advance.
The advice remains to stay at home wherever possible in order to maintain social distancing.
Each setting will have a maximum number of places.
Children 3 -11 can attend the primary settings below:
