Coronavirus update

 

Following recent reports in the news, and actions by other schools in the UK, we want to update you on the current situation regarding the coronavirus.  As you know, our ski trip went to Northern Italy this year, but they did not visit any of the areas or towns currently quarantined. 

As such, current government advice is for any people exhibiting symptoms to self isolate at home and call the NHS, but otherwise to continue as normal.  We have informed all students on the trip of this advice, and we will keep them updated if this advice changes. The Public Health Wales poster with advice for schools can be downloaded by clicking here and further information/guidance can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-specified-countries-and-areas/covid-19-specified-countries-and-areas-with-implications-for-returning-travellers-or-visitors-arriving-in-the-uk

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

In the meantime, please be conscious of usual common sense hygiene procedures around the school and at home.  We will of course continue to respond to guidance promptly, keep you informed of any changes to it and maintain our priority on the safety of all staff and students, without causing unnecessary disruption to your children's education.

 As a school we appreciate, and share the concerns this situation will undoubtedly cause.  In complex situations like these, we feel that we have to follow advice given to us by experts in the relevant field.  I would reiterate that students on our ski trip have not visited the areas that are currently quarantined and that we have therefore provided them with the relevant advice.  We are keeping in touch with anyone who is not in school and will respond to their circumstances as we are advised. There are currently no cases of the Coronavirus within the school population.
 
If you have any further questions, please contact the school in the first instance.
 
Mr. I. A. Gerrard
Headteacher

Collecting GCSE or A Level certificates

Students who attained GCSE or A levels in 2018 or 2019 and who have NOT yet collected their certificates are asked to contact the Exams Officer here at school and make arrangements to collect them.

It is timely to remind all parents of the procedures in the event of the school being closed due to bad weather.

When a decision is taken to close the school we will make the information available as soon as possible in the following ways.  Unless communication is received through these means, then please assume that the school remains open :

  • School website

  • School social media accounts

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YsgolAberconwySchool/

Twitter: @ysgolaberconwy 

  • Text and email message to primary contact numbers

(please therefore keep us informed of any changes to mobile phone numbers or email addresses)

  • Conwy County Council website

(www.conwy.gov.uk/schoolclosures)

  • Local Radio

(Capital FM/eartHeartHeart Radio/Radio Cymru/Radio Wales)

The decision to close the school is never taken lightly and rests with myself and the Governors.  Throughout the decision making process, our primary concern is always the safety of all our students and staff.
