Update- Tuesday 5th January 2021 (Statement from PCC regarding extension of virtual learning)

Council’s response to schools re-opening announcement

Responding to the statement last night by Education Minister Kirsty Williams regarding the re-opening of schools, Pembrokeshire County Council Director for Education Steven Richards-Downes, said:

“Pembrokeshire County Council welcomes the announcement from the Minister for Education.

“Pembrokeshire Schools will now provide online and distance learning until the 18th of January.

“All schools will provide childcare for vulnerable children and those of key workers until that date. Schools will let parents know their own arrangements for this.

“If further changes are necessary we will of course communicate those to parents and carers as soon as possible.

“Parents and carers are reminded of the message from the Minister for Education in her statement that everyone must stay at home to do their part to help slow the spread of the virus.”
