(Update 17th July, 2020)
I wanted to thank all of you for your support over the last term. It has been the strangest term in education. We have had to keep our distance but many of us have felt closer than ever before.
We have missed the children very much and have enjoyed seeing the students who have come in to school over the last three weeks. Behaviour and attitude to learning has been excellent and they have coped incredibly well with a very different school experience.
Letters have now been sent to each year group and they contain detailed plans for September. You can also find these plans on the website under the ‘Plans for September’ section. Please do keep checking the website as we expect there to be some changes before September 1st.
School will be open for most of the summer but will close for two weeks from Monday 3rd to Friday 14th August. Results day is on Thursday 20th August and year 11 students have been contacted to explain the process and timings. Year 10 English Literature results will be posted out.
I wish you and your families a restful and relaxing holiday,

Message from the Head Teacher – Returning to School Arrangements
Please find, via the links below, a letter for each new year group that will be starting their studies at Pentrehafod School in September 2020. In these letters from the Head Teacher, it lays out a detailed plan for the first eight school days in September. Please refer to it carefully.
Please watch this video message from Mrs Ford, outlining how the opening of Pentrehafod School in September will be organised for each year group and explaining in detail the timetables that you see below:

Arrangements for September 2020
I am sure you are now aware that Kirsty Williams has announced that she would like all children back in school for 1st September. However, there is some flexibility to allow us to prioritise key year groups until Monday 14th September.
At Pentrehafod we have decided to build in this flexibility and we will only have 3 year each day groups back until Friday 11th September.
This timetable will be shared with you on Friday 10th July along with an explanatory video.
From Monday 14th September, ALL students will return and they will then be taught in contact groups of no more than 30. The minister stated that these contact groups will stay together so students will continue to follow a bespoke timetable for another week. We will then review the situation.
Thank you for your support and patience at what has been a very challenging time for all of us.
