In order to give schools time to assess their staffing capacity and put in place the necessary measures to support learner return, the Welsh Government has decided to give each school two planning days at the beginning of next term (5th and 6th January 2022). Schools will not provide any online / blended learning during these days. Pupils in Ceredigion schools will be welcomed back to school on Friday 7th January 2022. Payments / vouchers will continue for those families who are entitled to free school meals provision for their children.
Depending on the Covid context, we may see changes in the way schools operate when they return in January. We will continue to assess the situation in conjunction with the Local Authority, Welsh Government and Public Health Wales. We will share any relevant updates with you as appropriate.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and we urge you to take extra care to keep yourself and those around you as safe as possible.
I would like to thank you for your patience and continued co-operation. Best wishes to you and your family at Christmas.
