Delayed start to the new school term

Posted on: Friday 17 December 2021

Due to the potential impact of the Covid-19 Omicron variant over the next few weeks, the Welsh Government have instructed every school in Wales to open 2 days later in the new term (closed Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th January) to prepare for potential disruption to learning and teaching.

These days will give the school time extra time to assess staffing capacity, reconsider risk assessments and mitigations and put any necessary measures in place to support the return of learners.

This is a very fast-moving situation so we will also ensure that if there are any further updates over the holiday period, we will share these in advance of the scheduled return to school on the 6th January.

For general information about schools and Coronavirus in Wales please visit the Welsh Government website.
