YEAR 7 NEWS

Dear Year 7 pupils and parents,

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Cefn Saeson today at 8.30am. You will be met by staff and guided to the auditorium where you will meet your Head of Year, your Form Tutors and you will told the plan for the day. Any questions that you have will be answered by your form tutors.

Pin numbers for parent pay will be allocated to you. Once you have returned your forms your parent pay account will be active. Until then you can purchase food from the school canteen as a deficit account that can be settled once the account is live.

School will end at 2.45pm when you will be dismissed either to walk, take the bus or met by your parents in the pupils drop off/pick up area.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

NEW UNIFORM

We are excited to see our pupils in their new uniforms and thank you for your continued support and positive feedback.
We have had several uniform queries over the holidays.
Just to clarify:
  • There is a year transition where pupils may wear the old uniform
  • For pupils in Year 10 & 11 wearing the new uniform, the blazer is a compulsory part of the new uniform. A jumper may be worn underneath the blazer. Jumpers will not be permitted to be worn instead of blazers
  • Non uniform items i.e. hoodies will not be permitted
We are looking forward to seeing you very soon.

RETURN TO SCHOOL: YEAR 7 / YEAR 8-11 NEWS

We are looking forward to welcoming our Year 7 pupils on Friday 3rd of September. We also look forward to seeing our Year 8-11 pupils on Monday, 6th of September. We are pleased to inform you that pupils are not required to wear face masks within the school, however, they will still be required to wear them for bus transportation. We kindly request that your child please brings a mask in their bag should guidelines change.

It has also been recommended that any pupil PRIOR to returning to school takes 2x LFD tests, 2/3 days apart with the second test being as close to the first day back as possible, ideally the morning that term starts, and the result of the tests be recorded. The information in the link below gives advice as to how you can access LFD tests. Once term starts the school will provide pupils with tests kits (or these can be collected from the school reception from 9am – 2pm on Thursday & Friday of this week. Lateral Flow test kits can also be collected from local test sites, and some community collection points. https://tinyurl.com/dp4j4ajh

We are looking forward to the start of term and are hoping that with these measures in place Cefn Saeson can continue to be a vibrant, healthy, school community.

CONGRATULATIONS !
