Dear Parents and Carers
Following the government’s revised social distancing guidelines, the more direct instruction for vulnerable groups and increased definition of those vulnerable groups, Swansea Local Authority has made the decision to close both of the City’s Special Schools (Ysgol Pen y Bryn and Ysgol Crug Glas) with immediate effect.
This decision has been taken to protect our pupils, who are the most vulnerable in the authority, many of whom fall into the highest category of risk. Further to my communication yesterday, we have prepared resources and access to materials that may help you continue to engage your child in learning whilst the school is closed. These resources can be found on our website http://www.ysgolpenybryn.co.uk/ and under your child’s class page.
The school will close for the remainder of the Spring term and the Easter break. The Summer term is due to commence on Monday 20th April and it is our current intention that we will reopen on that date. However, as we are in unprecedented times, I urge you to regularly check the National and Local news, the school website, the Local Authority website, our Schoop app and Facebook page prior to this date.
