We have had confirmation from the First Minister today of the following:
- There will be a two week circuit break in Wales beginning Friday 23rd October at 6pm.
- Half term will remain a holiday period for schools.
During week two i.e. w/c 2nd November:
- Primary Schools will remain fully open.
- Special Schools (including PRU’s) will remain fully open.
- Secondary schools will remain open for years 7 and 8.
- Any secondary pupil sitting an exam will be allowed to attend school for that specific exam only.
- School transport will continue to operate.
I have just received this information and will ensure we share more detailed plans for the w/c 2nd November as soon as we are able to.
With best wishes
