Breakfast Clubs Update Summer Term 2021
Dear Parent / Guardian,
As you are aware to help us consider the feasibility of re-opening Breakfast Club Provision in Primary Schools safely during the pandemic we undertook an expression of interest exercise prior to Easter.
Thank you to everyone who completed this. All responses have now been reviewed and service plans have been considered in line with Welsh Government’s latest guidance for schools to assess if breakfast club provision can be delivered safely having regard to the following factors:-
As a result of this assessment the local authority has identified barriers to being able to reopen breakfast clubs safely at the current time:-
As we are not able to reopen breakfast clubs safely across the County Borough the local authority considers that it would be unreasonable to reopen the breakfast clubs at this time and has therefore decided that breakfast club provision will remain closed until September at the earliest.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and can assure you that we will continue to monitor the latest guidance on COVID19 so that as social distancing and other requirements are eased, Breakfast Clubs can be reopened safely across the County Borough during the Autumn Term.
We will provide a further update to parents during the second half of the Summer Term about options to reopen in September.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
