To all in the MACS community; parents, carers and pupils alike, please see attached for download a key update letter from RCT’s Director of Education which details arrangements for school provision up to January 18th (this supersedes any previous letter you will have received on the matter). Beyond this date we understand that decisions will be taken following ongoing review and discussions within Welsh Government over the coming days/week. With regard to any critical worker or vulnerable learner ‘Week 2 provision’, we will communicate with parents and carers separately in a similar manner to recent days and in how we organised ‘Week 1 provision’.

We apologise for the everchanging, and often short-notice, messages that you are receiving but we will endeavour to keep you fully updated as soon as we receive information from official sources. This letter will also, in due course, have been distributed by Parent Mail.
