*Important* Please read the message below from Mrs Edwards:

Dear Parent/Carer
Last week Kirsty Williams the Welsh Government Education Minister instructed Schools to open for check in sessions. This will begin the week of 29th June. We are currently planning what this will look like for your child/children ensuring that the priority is, as far as we possibly can, the safety of our pupils, their families and staff. Our plan is to offer your child/children one session a week between now and school closing the week beginning 20th July.
Please let your Class Teacher know as soon as possible if you are planning, or not planning, to send your child back to School for these check in sessions. Please be aware that responses from Parents/Carers will determine the size of each group and so we would appreciate it if once you have given your answer then this does not change, as this would affect our numbers, groups and staffing. Please let us know what your intention is , at the latest by the end of this week, Friday 12th June.
Best Wishes
Mrs E Edwards

Survey from the Childrens Commissioner for Wales.(please note previous survey was a trial)

People who can make a difference to your life want to hear from you about how life has been over the last few weeks. Sally Holland, the Children’s Commissioner, is one of those people.

She wants to know about any worries you have, how you’ve been spending your time, and also about the things that have made you happy.

Sally has been working with the Welsh Government, to make sure that they hear and listen to what you have to say. Sally wants to make sure they are doing their best for all children and young people in Wales. It will also help them to make sure that they are giving you the information and support you need to feel as happy as possible during this time and afterwards.

The survey should take you around 15 minutes.
