Snow Closure Update

Following Local Authority advice the school is closed all day Friday 2nd March. See below:

To all Headteachers and Chairs of Governors / I bob Pennaeth a Chadeiryddion Llywodraethwyr
 
The Met Office has updated their warnings for today and tomorrow. The Amber Warning is now the highest risk Amber Warning possible and is in force from 12.00 Thursday 1st March. The snow is likely to be accompanied by strong easterly winds.  In the warning the Met Office Forecaster has stated that “long delays and cancellations to public transport is expected, whilst some roads may become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are likely to occur” in places within that Amber Warning area.
 
Given the accuracy of the forecast to date and the known level of snow and disruption caused in other parts of the country, the safety of our pupils and staff is paramount. Therefore, the local authority is advising all schools (if they haven’t taken a decision) to close at 12pm today and to remain closed tomorrow to both pupils and staff.  All staff will be paid for their normal hours for enforced closures.
 
The Council’s media and communications team will be publicising the above information but I urge you to issue a clear communication to your school community as early as possible.

New Outdoor Learning Areas

Outdoor learning 1

Outdoor learning 2

A Bright new addition to the playground area!

During the half term holiday installation of fencing, to create outdoor learning areas for classes 1, 2 and 3 commenced and has now been completed.

Outdoor classrooms was one of the recommendations that came out of the most recent Estyn inspection. Funding has come from several different areas enabling the school to address that recommendation.

Staff have also been on training courses to enable them to maximise the use of the outdoor classroom areas for the pupils.
