A quick update for parents regarding the childcare for key
workers children, we have received the email below from
Carmarthenshire LEA this morning. As soon as we receive
any more information we will forward this onto you
We are planning to develop school sites for the provision of emergency childcare cover for key workers and support for vulnerable children and young people.
Plans are also in place to ensure the provision of free school meals can continue.
More information on this will follow as soon as possible.
As you may be aware from recent media reports, the school will be closed from Friday 20th March.
Work packs for children will be available from Thursday 19th March from 10:30am.
For pupils with underlying health conditions we advise that they stay home from tomorrow.
We will update you on any information via Class Dojo and our school website as we receive it.

Cardiff and Vale Child Health Psychology Service have produced an information pack for parents to support explaining to children about Covid-19. The pack is available here.
We appreciate there is a level of concern about Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As parents and pupils you should be reassured that we continue to take advice from Public Health Wales and are taking all appropriate measures to prevent the spread of the virus. We are advised that at this time the risk to the general public remains low.
Public Health Wales advice can be found here: https://phw.nhs.wales/coronavirus/
We appreciate the cooperation of pupils and parents to help prevent the spread of infections. Good hygiene is the best prevention and there are some simple steps you can take to protect you and your family. These include:
- Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water is not available.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin and wash hands immediately.
If your child is feeling unwell and has been to one of the countries or regions listed on the Public Health Wales website, or has been in close contact with an individual with confirmed Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), please call NHS 111 straight away for further advice.
