All primary aged children in Pembrokeshire can return to their classrooms from next Monday, 15th March, the County Council has confirmed.
It follows an announcement by Education Minister Kirsty Williams today, in which she said all primary school children will return to school next week, with the youngest already having been back for a fortnight.
Some secondary pupils – those in the examinations years 11 and 13 – will also return to their classrooms next Monday.
“This is welcome news for many pupils,” said Cllr Guy Woodham, Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning. “Schools are working hard for their return and looking forward to being able to welcome them back and resume face-to-face teaching.
“Once again, I want to reassure everyone that a great deal of work has taken place to minimise risk of transmission of the virus in a school setting.”
Secondary schools are also making arrangements for learners in other year groups to check in and catch up. These arrangements will be flexible and determined by individual schools, as they are all of different sizes. Details will found on school websites as soon as dates are confirmed.
