At Llantwit Major School, we firmly believe that people are our greatest asset.

 

We see ourselves as a school community committed to excellence, creativity and innovation. We encourage participation in a wide range of educational and life enriching activities, celebrating success in many varied ways. The ultimate aim is to help all students prepare to take maximum advantage of life long learning experiences in further education and careers, establishing themselves as responsible members of the community and beyond. By focussing on maintaining high expectations and relationships, fostering a positive ethos, providing a broad and stimulating curriculum and embedding the school at the core of the community, we aim to provide young people with a valuable and fulfilling experience of school.

Coronavirus information - update 11 May 2020

FREE SCHOOL MEALS:  FROM WEDNESDAY 1 APRIL PARENTS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH VOUCHERS EITHER VIA EMAIL OR BY POST FROM THE LOCAL AUTHORITY.  

Dear Parent/Guardian

 

COVID 19 Update – 1 June 2020

 

Following the update by the Government on the 29 May, Llantwit Major School will remain closed. There continues to be speculation in the press about potential school re-opening particularly linked to the schedule planned for England. Kirsty Williams, Minister for Education stated on Friday that she will give an update this week and I can assure you that as soon as we receive any updated information we will share this information with you. As a school, we are very keen to re-open but we will only do this when we are assured it is safe to do so. Therefore regrettably, the methods of learning for students, as described below, will continue until an announcement otherwise is made by the Welsh Government.

 

During this period, much of our work will continue to be undertaken remotely, outside of the occasions when we will be providing childcare at Ysgol Y Ddraig as part of the HUB 12 model. Please read below as to how contact can be made with the school during this period.

 

  1. School provision for key workers:
    If you require a place for your son/daughter in the Hub 12 provision based in Ysgol Y Ddraig, please apply for your place via the Vale of Glamorgan website: www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/ChildCareHubs

Applications must be made by 4.00pm every Thursday for provision the following week.

Advance Notice:

  • After Sunday 31 May the Hub will be closed on weekends, there will be no Saturday/Sunday provision after this date. It has been noted that numbers are incredibly low and not a viable option for staffing in the office, classrooms and kitchen to continue.

 

  • From Monday 8 June the Hub opening hours will also be changing. The Hub will be open Monday to Friday from 8am until 6pm. There will still be a breakfast, lunch and supper facility ongoing.

 

  • From Monday 8 June, all children from St Illtyd's Primary School and Ysgol Dewi Sant will be having their child care provision at St Illtyd's Primary School. All Ysgol Y Ddraig and Llantwit Major Comprehensive School children will continue to use the Ysgol Y Ddraig site as they are now. Please ensure you continue to book in the same way through the Vale website.

 

  1. Pastoral support for pupils: A designated email address is available to pupils who need support and advice for urgent, school related issues between the hours of 8.30 am – 3.00 pm.  The email is: pupilsupport@llantwitschool.org.uk

  2. Communication: Llantwit Major School Office staff will continue to answer calls between 8.30am – 3.00pm remotely and are responding to emails on llantwitmajorhs@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk  

 

  1. Online Learning:An updated letter outlining how your child will continue with informal learning will be sent home every Monday at around 8.30 am. This will restart on Monday 1 June.

 

  1. GCSE & A level exam results: The Government has confirmed that this year’s GCSE students will get their results on Thursday 20 August, while those who are awaiting A/AS level results will get theirs on Thursday 13 August. These dates are the same as those published at the start of this academic year

Please be aware that whilst the school continues to be closed  we will endeavour to keep you updated via letter and via the school website and, to reassure you, that our staff are working hard to ensure that provision is in place to support you as families throughout this difficult time.

Yours faithfully
