Ysgol Gymraeg Cwmbrân - We Were Given a Language to Care For

Changes to the beginning of the spring term:

Changes to the beginning of the spring term:

17th December 2021

The pupils will now return to school on Thursday, January 6th.

(Please see the letter in the 'School Letters' section for all the information about the changes.)

Due to the potential impact of the Covid-19 Omicron variant over the next few weeks, the Welsh Government have instructed every school in Wales to take the first two days of the new term (Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th of January) as additional planning days to prepare for potential disruption to learning and teaching.

These days will give the school time extra time to assess staffing capacity, reconsider risk assessments and
mitigations and put any necessary measures in place to support the return of learners.

Our school’s priority is to always minimise disruption to our pupils’ education and maintain face to face learning

in the classroom in a safe way for everyone. However, to protect our pupils and staff we are also being asked
to prepare for a period of remote learning should cases locally result in significant staff or pupil absence.
This is a very fast-moving situation so we will also ensure that if there are any further updates over the holiday period, we will share these in advance of the scheduled return to school.

Pupils were due to return to school on January 5th, they will now return on Thursday, January 6th 2022. The
school will not be open for ANY pupils on the 4th or 5th January. The Staff Training Day which was due to take place on the 4th January will now take place later in the academic year.

Thank you for your continued support.

Diolch yn fawr.
