HEADTEACHER STATEMENT 8.6.20
As you will all know by now, schools across Wales will reopen on the 29th June. Staff at Milford Haven School are now busy planning for the safe return of pupils, and over the coming weeks we will share with you details of our plan as it takes shape.
The Welsh Government’s reasons for this re-opening of schools at this stage is to allow learners to ‘check-in, catch-up and prepare for Summer and September’. Some of you may choose not to send your children to school this term, and for that you will not be penalised. As previously stated schools will be limited to having one third of their student population on school site at a time, and as such we need indicative numbers of learners who are likely to return to us this term to inform our planning and staffing. We are asking all parents and carers to please complete the attached google form https://forms.gle/rgvuQ4j2H1erubHE9 to let us know if you intend your children to return to school before the Summer.
You do not need to complete the survey detailed above if your child is in Year 11 & 13, as these pupils have technically left school now. We do wish to still keep in touch and are continuing with our online check-ins. Pupils of years 11 & 13 are encouraged to get in touch with us if there is any way we can support you during this time of transition, whatever your planned next steps are.
Please note, you will be able to change your mind as this will be a first trawl. Once we have a finalised plan a detailed letter will be sent to you explaining all, setting everything out in relation to our plans for the re-opening of Milford Haven School. In the meantime, take care and stay safe.
Many of you will have seen our online announcement of a ‘Virtual Eisteddfod’ at MHS this year. The response so far has been incredibly positive, thank you all for getting involved and we look forward to sharing with you updates on the competitions.
Another week has flown by, but that means it is time for ‘Seren Yr Wythnos’ and our favourite way to end the week is celebrating some of the wonderful achievements of MHS pupils!
*Defender’s seren yr wythnos this week is Lowri Jenkins-Scott, this is for being an absolute superstar at home and demonstrating a very mature attitude.
*Diamond’s seren yr wythnos this week is Mr Clarke for completing his first half marathon and getting lots of miles for Diamond throughout the school to school challenge.
*Dragon’s seren yr wythnos this week are Sam Burton and Evan Rutherford for their superb contributions and effort this week towards the MHS school to school challenge.
*Daring’s seren yr wythnos this week are Darcey Phillips and Leo Power for excellent effort and miles put into the House competition this week. Da iawn pawb.
