Update - Inclement Weather (14/01/16)

posted 14 Jan 2016, 06:15 by Unknown user

We will use this website to provide frequent updates of the situation regarding the inclement weather and its effect on transport, the school and external examinations.

We will make every effort to ensure that the school remains open and the majority of our pupils are able to sit the external GCSE examination on January 15.

We are in close contact with the RCT and Merthyr Tudfil Transport Departments and we will contact parents immediately by text if transport is cancelled. If there is no text from the school, the relevant Transport Departments have not contacted the school. We have been assured that we will be contacted as soon as any decision has been made. 

We suggest that during this time, pupils wrap up warmly as they may have to wait longer than usual at their bus stops as understandably, the buses may be late in inclement weather.

We will try our upmost to ensure that Year 11 can arrive in the school to sit their external examinations, with their safety as our main concern. If transport is cancelled, pupils from Merthyr will be able to sit their examination at Ysgol Gynradd Santes Tudful.

Frequent updates will be posted on this website and our Twitter account. If the school has to be closed,  a message will be posted here, on the school answer phone, Radio Wales and Radio Cymru and the school’s Twitter account.
