Dear parent/carer


Distance learning is presenting incredible challenges and opportunities for teachers, parents/carers and pupils at this time.  Please find attached a guide that may help your understanding of the many forms of learning your child/ren could be engaging in currently (this is not exhaustive).


Your views on this matter are so important to us.  Below is a link to a survey.  If you have some time, we would be very grateful if you could complete this by 13.2.21 and share your experiences with us so far.


Can we remind you that should you experience any difficulties accessing the learning from your school/s, please contact them directly and they will be able to support you.



Many thanks,



Gaynor Davies

Director of Education & Inclusion Services



For the attention of class 2/3 only

Message from South Wales Police:


Parents of school-age children are being encouraged to be aware of what their children are doing online. During these unprecedented times, they are spending longer each day on the internet, so never has online safety been more important. Since schools closed, there has been an increase in the number of incidents involving indecent images being requested from, and sent to, children. Please - as a parent - make it your responsibility to ensure your child is as protected as they can be from this threat. Why not make internet safety the subject for a home schooling session before your children return to school? It could the most valuable lesson they’ve had - there are many helpful resources to help you and your child. - Learn about Sexting - Advice from Childline - General Kids Internet Safety advice from South Wales Police partner Get Safe Online
