PPSContact Parent Partnership if you are interested in attending our next face-to-face workshop “Helping Your Child using Social Narratives.”

Social Narratives are simple stories that use visuals and images to help your child to understand different or new situations. For example, helping your child understand how/why they need to brush their teeth. Or, why hitting others is not appropriate.

These visual resources are particularly useful for children with social communication needs.

WELSH GOVERNMENT UPDATE REGARDING  |   LATERAL FLOW TESTING

The Welsh Government guidance regarding Covid-19 testing started this week.

Secondary School and FE learners under 18 are advised to use a LFT test every morning for 7 days following a household member testing positive for Covid 19. This is in addition to the PCR tests on day 2 and 8.

LFT's should be done in a morning to identify anyone that is potentially infectious before they arrive in school. The PCR is a very sensitive test, to detect any positive cases that may have been missed by the LFT test.

If any students need additional LFT tests, they may be collected by pupils, students or parents from the Main Reception.

School Site  |   Parking and Dropping Off/Picking Up

All drivers are requested to use the designated Drop Off/Pick Up and parking sites whilst on the school site.

Please do not use the One Way road outside school for dropping off or picking up. This road is for designated vehicles only including our school buses. Please follow the instructions on the No Entry signs and use the correct spaces.

Please do not park in the Bus Lanes; these are for buses only. Parking in them is causing traffic disruption and is a potential risk to pupils and staff alike.

And please do not park on the pavements; this creates risk to all, but in particular makes access very difficult for our pupils who need to use mobility assistance and those pupils who have visibility impairment.
