We would like to thank you as parents for your support to the staff at this difficult and uncertain time. Please find below more information regarding the arrangements for this week.
  • The school with be open tomorrow (March 23rd) for the children of critical workers. Ysgol Glanrafon staff will provide care for the pupils – we will not be conducting educational lessons.

  • We need to emphasize once again that this provision is available for pupils of parents who have been identified as critical workers ( ). To access this care either both parents need to be identified as critical workers or a single parent must be a critical worker.

  • Parents need to keep their children at home where possible – the school will only be open for the children who’s parents have no other option. 

  • High risk pupils, e.g. children who suffer from asthma, should not come to school unless ABSOLUTELY necessary.

  • Parents will need to sign their children in and out of school. Parents will be expected to state their job (both parents’ jobs if the child doesn’t come from a single parent family) on this form. If pupils will be travelling on school transport, parents need to e-mail the school beforehand with details of parents’ work.

  • If it is possible to reduce the time that the children of critical workers spend at school we encourage you to do so. A child should not spend the full day / every day at school if it isn’t absolutely necessaryThis will minimize social contact for pupils and staff

  • The school will be open from 8am to 5.30pm (which includes the Breakfast Club and After School Club). Meithrin + will also be open.

  • The pupils will be in two age groups – Under 7s / KS2.

  • A free school meal will be provided for every child.

  • A snack will be provided for the Under 7s Unit’s pupils. KS2 pupils may bring their own snack. NO NUTS please.

  • The pupils will need to bring a drink to school.

  • School uniform is optional but they will need comfortable clothing and trainers for outside activities.

  • The children do not need to bring any school work or reading books to school.

  • We would like parents to use our online system, School Comms, to reserve a space for the pupils. If you haven’t used the system in the past to book the after school club we will send the information home imminently. This will give us an idea of the numbers and will help us with staffing arrangements. 

  • If you are worried about the above or anything else please remember to e-mail the school – We are monitoring the e-mails regularly during the weekend.
