I hope you are all safe and well.
The Government has been very clear that the current role of schools is to provide distance learning for most pupils, whilst staff are also helping to provide emergency childcare for children of key workers in Denbighshire hubs.
As I said in the newsletter of 6th April I hope you are not finding the learning at home with your child too stressful. We appreciate it can be hard to educate at home, particularly with the added stresses upon families at this difficult time. It may not be always possible to complete the set tasks, but reading a book or playing a game together, having a chat, cooking or gardening are all learning experiences, so please do not put pressure on yourselves to get the set work completed.
To keep you updated I am retweeting information from Welsh Government and Denbighshire County Council via our twitter page @yfaenol.
We do not know when the current lockdown will end, but when I hear about any firm plans for the future I will let you know via text and/or letters on the website.
Ysgol Y Faenol is currently closed and staff have been allocated to work in other settings. If you need to get in touch with school staff please either:
- reply to a text
- contact us via the message page on the webite
- send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We can then contact you in response to your query.
Learners can message their teachers with queries about work via the hwb class pages.
The newsletter of 6th April lists some support websites/helplines, which may be of help. I have, today, added a letter onto the school newsletters page about the 'Understanding Your Child - Solihull Approach' This is a free online course for any North Wales resident. Further details are in the letter. I have heard excellent feedback about this course, so it may well be worth registering.
The staff and I are thinking of you and looking forward to seeing you when these difficult and trying times are finally over. Please take care.
