Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope your children are settling back into school after a very disruptive few months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

I would again like to thank you for the continued support and co-operation you have shown during this difficult time, and for everything you have done to assist your child’s learning, your child’s school and the county council.

Considerable work has been carried out by Headteachers and their staff in schools in order to reduce the potential transmission of coronavirus, and to minimise any risk to pupils and staff, including risk assessments, guidance and training as well as increased cleaning and regular handwashing, social distancing and grouping learners.

It is important to remember that coronavirus has not gone away, and we all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and others safe.

The arrangements that have been put in place by schools are of vital importance and I cannot stress strongly enough how very important it is that we all adhere to these measures.

In particular I would like to remind parents to please follow the arrangements for social distancing when dropping off and collecting your children from school.

With all pupils returning next week, it is vital that parents keep their distance to avoid close contact and potential transmission of the virus.

I would ask you to please:

• Arrive promptly in your designated time slot.

• Stand 2m from other families.

• Leave promptly and move away from the school gates as soon as you have dropped off your child.

• Please do not congregate outside the school gates as this is making it difficult for other families arriving at staggered times.

Please can I also remind you of the arrangements if your child is unwell. Under no circumstances should you send your child to school if they:

• have any of the three identified COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or loss of taste or smell) or they have tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

• live in a household with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

If your child becomes unwell outside of school hours with any of the COVID-19 symptoms or needs to self-isolate, please report this to us by calling Delta Wellbeing on 0300 333 2222 or by emailing who will notify the school on your behalf.

Please only contact Delta Wellbeing out of hours if your child has COVID-19 symptoms. During school hours and for all other health-related issues please inform your school directly. This line is specific for Carmarthenshire, whereas NHS is nationwide. Please use the above information.

Many thanks for your co-operation, it is important we work together to contain the virus and to avoid a spike in our community and the potential re-introduction of lockdown measures.

Yours sincerely

Gareth Morgans

Director for Education and Children Services
