Omicron Covid Variant of Concern  |   School Operations

The Following Information has been sent via the School Gateway App to all Parents/Carers - 30 November 2021

From Wednesday 1st December, all secondary aged pupils in Wales will be required to wear face coverings in all communal areas of school, including classrooms.

We have received communication from the Minister for Education for Wales, Jeremy Miles regarding changes to face coverings. Pupils and staff have been wearing face coverings/masks in communal areas, this will continue but they will also now be required to wear these in classrooms, where social distancing is not possible.

This new measure has been introduced in response to the risks posed by the new Covid 19 variant. This is a temporary, precautionary measure that will be in place for the remaining weeks of term at which point the position will be reviewed. We have been informed that this requirement should come into effect in all settings as soon as possible.

We ask kindly therefore that pupils and staff follow this new requirement from Wednesday 1st December onwards.

Your assistance in ensuring that your child/ren are provided with a face covering, either reusable or disposable would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Mrs Kite

Urgent Message for Parents/Carers  |   On Behalf of Pembrokeshire Education Service and Dyfed Powys Police

Urgent message for parents on behalf of Pembrokeshire Education Service and Dyfed Powys Police

Schools have and continue to work closely and effectively with pupils to ensure that they are supported in their learning and well-being. It is therefore a significant concern that numerous fake social media accounts have been created, targeting unacceptable comments towards schools and individuals. The content of these false accounts are completely inappropriate and a cause for concern.

Schools have reported that the vast majority of pupils have displayed a mature attitude and shown their displeasure with this content. Dyfed Powys Police will continue to work with schools to further increase awareness of the impact of harmful content and the consequences of such actions. We kindly ask that parents/carers discuss the appropriate use of social media with their children and continue to support schools in promoting respect and kindness.

The school also has the right to undertake appropriate sanctions against pupils if they are involved in incidents of inappropriate behaviour of this nature.

The following guidance is useful:

  • The Social media guides - UK Safer Internet Centre contains details of the different social websites that provide safeguarding guidance for parents to take action
  • Inappropriate content should be reported to the TikTok platform and these two links help:

Report Harmful Content | SWGfL
Report Harmful Content - We Help You Remove Content

The SWGfl states, “We’re working with TikTok, who know and understand the issue and are taking action to remove or delete content. We have escalated hundreds of accounts to TikTok for review and they are getting there slowly and responding when they can but we have totally bombarded them, so, likely to be a short delay on these.”

All school police officers are aware of the current issues and the police Chief Inspector has been made aware of this challenge in schools.

The intrepid 3 tackled Snowden first, climbing throughout Friday night, followed by Cadair Idris during the following Saturday morning and afternoon and finishing up completing Pen y Fan during the evening.

School Site  |   Parking and Dropping Off/Picking Up

All drivers are requested to use the designated Drop Off/Pick Up and parking sites whilst on the school site.

Please do not use the One Way road outside school for dropping off or picking up. This road is for designated vehicles only including our school buses. Please follow the instructions on the No Entry signs and use the correct spaces.

Please do not park in the Bus Lanes; these are for buses only. Parking in them is causing traffic disruption and is a potential risk to pupils and staff alike.

And please do not park on the pavements; this creates risk to all, but in particular makes access very difficult for our pupils who need to use mobility assistance and those pupils who have visibility impairment.
