This page will contain all information and updates pertaining to the Covid19 outbreak and Ysgol Penmaes.

If your child tests positive for Covid then they will need to isolate for 5 days and be symptom free from Covid on their return. If your child is a contact of a positive case then providing the are showing no symptoms then they can continue to attend school. All I ask is thay you remain vigilant for symptoms.

We as a school are continuing to remain vigilant and are monitoring any positive cases of Covid that arise. When there are positive cases identified in school we are informing parents and Powys transport via email.

Even though there are no longer any restrictions in place we as a school continue to social distance where we can, although this is difficult given the needs of the learners. Hygiene routines are still as thorough as ever and the school has PPE supplies to support when needed.

Should there be more than one positive case in a class and staffing levels reduce significantly then I may not have an option but to close classes. if this should happen classes will be closed for the shortest amount of time possible. Please also appreciate that class closures may happen at short notice and I understand this is not ideal for parents and carers but there are occasions when this cannot be avoided.

If you have any concerns then please do make contact with the school.

Kind regards

Angharad Bryn-Jones
