Dear Parents / Carers

It was fantastic to welcome back the majority of our students last week. After nearly fifteen weeks of school closure, it was such a pleasure to have some level of normality. The students' conduct was superb. They adjusted amazingly well to the new social distancing measures, were sensible and worked hard in their lessons. Well done to them all.

If your child hasn’t returned to school yet and if they are not shielding, we would be delighted to see them this week.

Thank you for the many positive comments that we received on social media such as:

"Thank you @StJuliansSchool [...] enjoyed his morning in school. He said he felt comfortable and was so happy to meet with teachers and especially friends. It was also lovely to see so many smiling happy children leaving the school. Well done for the hard work staff have put in “

Blended Learning

Whilst students are at home for four days a week, they should be completing the online work which complements the face-to-face sessions. We are now into the second week of a three week cycle of work which can be accessed here.

Recorded or Streamed Lesson

A reminder that students in Year 9 and Year 10 will receive a one hour lesson that has been recorded or will be streamed each week for the remaining two weeks. Your child needs to log on to their Google Classroom account between 1300-1400 to access this lesson. If you do not give permission for your child to partake in a live lesson, then please can you contact your child’s Progress Leader.

Year 6 Transition

As well as restarting lessons for our current students last week, we also welcomed our new cohort.  Two of our new Year 7 forms took part in a socially distancing transition visit.  It was lovely to see so many keen and eager faces. They spent time meeting Mr King, their new Progress Leader, chatting to their form tutor and touring the school. 


September Return to School

We have produced a number of different plans for September to reflect the possible scenarios. At this stage, we are still unable to finalise our approach to returning to school in September; we await further direction from the Welsh Government. We are hoping to hear more this week and will  provide further information before we break up for the holidays.

Have a good week. Stay safe.

Yours faithfully
