Letter to Parents and Guardians – re switch to online teaching – 4 Jan 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As promised, I write again to update you on the latest advice from the Welsh government on schools reopening in Wales. At 6pm this evening, the Welsh Education Minister announced that all schools in Wales will now switch to online teaching and will not re-open until 18th January at the earliest for face-to-face lessons.

As with the previous lockdown, our family of schools will remain open for children where both parents are key workers. We will be sending a survey to all parents using School Post tomorrow, in order to assess demand for both day and boarding places under this provision for key workers.

We currently have around 30 boarders who remained with us over the Christmas holidays and we will, of course, continue to offer them our total support and care as they too will switch to online studies from Thursday.

We will provide you with a more detailed plan outlining how we will deliver our curriculum online for different year groups over the coming days. We will also be in touch with parents of pupils in Years 11 and 13 with further details once arrangements for this summer’s GCSE and A level assessments become clearer.

Thank you in advance for your on-going support as, together, we face this latest challenge to keep any disruption to your children’s education to an absolute minimum.

Yours sincerely,

Mr James Murphy-O’Connor
Principal of Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools
