Re: Reopening of Schools in September
The Welsh Government announced today that schools will reopen fully for all students in September.
The main points were:
The autumn term in Wales will start on Tuesday 1st September.
Schools have flexibility for a phased approach for the first two weeks if they so wish, but all students must be back full-time by Monday 14th September.
Students will need to be in "class contact groups" of 30.
There is recognition that in secondary schools, students may need to mix groups and move for specialist teaching.
There will be limited social distancing for students in their contact groups; however, adults must continue to social distance according to guidance.
Schools will continue to operate with Covid 19 mitigating measures in place, e.g. one way systems, hand sanitising, minimising movement etc.
Schools will need a back up plan for future closures.
We will receive the full operational guidance on Monday which will give us the exact details on how we can operate as a school in September.
I will update you again at the beginning of next week to give you the dates and arrangements for St Julian’s students.
In the meantime, have a lovely weekend. Stay safe.
