Happy Lunar New Year to you all!

I am sure you would have seen and heard from the national press, the NEU and NAHT unions intend to take industrial action which has been planned for 1st and 14th February and 15th and 16th March. I have received guidance from the local authority and I’m in the process of undertaking a risk assessment to establish if we can remain open safely to pupils with the amount of staff available to work. Once I have established if we can open without compromising the children’s safety then I will contact you via class dojo and the school website by Tuesday at the latest.

Year 6 parents and carers might have noticed that two of the days in March fall within the Year 6 residential. I have been in contact with Morfa Bay to negotiate a change to the proposed date and I’m waiting for them to get back to me with new dates. Hopefully they will be able to accommodate us around the same date because the children and staff are very much looking forward to it!
