Because of the risk of pupils contracting coronavirus at schools ,and therefore having to self-isolate over Christmas Day , Merthyr Council have decided that we will close for pupils at the end of the day on Tuesday , December 15th.
This was an inevitable decision given the surrounding councils of RCT , Bridgend , Cardiff and Caerphilly had already made the decision regarding primary schools a few days ago.
I'm sorry for the short notice , but as you will be aware , we are under the direct guidance of Merthyr Council and as such have to wait for their decision making process to take its course.
Tasks will be set on both Dojo and Classroom for pupils to complete.
As far as I know the school will be open again on Monday , January 4th 2021 , but of course will keep you fully informed when details have been confirmed.
The official letter from Merthyr is attached for your information.
