Welcome to Ysgol Hafan y Môr
Risk Assessment for Re-opening January 2022 (revised 3.1.2022)
Changes to drop off & collection
Following new rules from Welsh Governement and Pembrokeshire County Council, all parents / carers are kindly asked to wear a face covering when bringing their child to school and collecting them. This is to ensure the continued safety of all and is attempting to lessen the transmission of the virus in the community.
Could I also please remind all parents and carers that they must adhere to the one way system, follow the white arrows and not walk across the back yard playground. If parents/ carers have collected younger children please keep them with you whilst you wait on the spot to collect an older sibling. I kindly ask that parents / carers collect their child/ren and immediately leave the school grounds.
These measures are in place to try and protect all and lessen the transmission rate. The transmission rate of the virus is increasing across Pembrokeshire and within schools, please make every effort to protect everyone and support us, as a school, by reminding others of the current and new measures on school grounds.
School drop off – Any child in yr.3 or younger
If your child does not come to the breakfast club, please ensure that you wait with your child on the appropriate spot until your child’s class teacher opens the classroom door to allow your child to enter. Children in yr. 3 or below, cannot be left by themselves as this could potentially cause a serious safeguarding risk.
Ysgol Hafan y Môr, is the first Welsh-medium school in the area and was opened in September 2016. The school comprisies of six full-time classes of mixed age with a capacity for 210 full-time pupils and 60 part-time, nursery pupils. Pupils are admitted to the school in the term following their third birthday. Pupil numbers have increased significantly since the opening of the school and we continue to grow.
In addition to the school, we also have a Cylch Meithrin on site, which is available on a daily basis for 2yr olds and is CIW registered. The Cylch Ti a Fi for children from 0-3yrs is held on a Wednesday morning, Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Further information about the pre-school activities can be obtained via the school.
