Year 11 Return To School Date

Dear Parent/Carer,

We have sought clarification from Public Health Wales regarding when Year 11 can return to school.

I am pleased to inform you that it has been confirmed that Year 11 can return to school on Wednesday 21st October. We look forward to welcoming all Year 11 students back on this date, other than those who are self-isolating due to a family member or close contact having Covid-19 symptoms or a positive result. If your child is in this position, please phone the school on Tuesday 20th October so that we can update our records accordingly.

Kind Regards

Mr A D Williams

Deputy Headteacher
Radyr Comprehensive School


Dear Parent/Carer,

You will no doubt have heard the announcement made by the First Minister at lunchtime today. Wales is entering a 2-week “firebreak” and only pupils in Years 7 and 8 are permitted to attend school w/b 2nd November.

We are meeting with Heads of Department after school today. Parents of pupils in Years 9-13 will receive a detailed plan outlining the virtual learning package that will be put in place for your child by the end of the week. Please rest assured that pupils in these year groups will continue to be educated using electronic means during the “firebreak.”

Parents of Year 7 and 8 pupils should continue to send their child to school as normal w/b 2nd November.

Kind Regards
Mr A D Williams
Radyr Comprehensive School

Work for Absent Pupils

Dear Parent/Carer

Thank you for helping to protect the Radyr School Community by keeping your child at home until they can obtain a negative test or complete the necessary period of quarantine.

Just to remind you that pupils displaying symptoms must stay at home self-isolating for 10 days unless they can obtain a negative test. If your child has tested positive using a lateral flow, then please notify the school and immediately book a PCR test online. If the PCR test is negative, then they are able to return, nevertheless, if this result is positive, then they will need to isolate for 10 days from their initial symptoms.

During this time, if they are well enough, they must continue learning at home by completing the work that can be accessed by clicking on the link below:

This link will take them to a set of work folders designed for each year group. Inside the year group folder you will find dated folders containing the relevant work for each subject. Your child should access the work in the relevant week and complete the tasks set. We recommend that they broadly follow their timetable at home to ensure that each subject they study gets the appropriate amount of time allocated.

Faculties have made every effort to provide quality work that mirrors the work being completed in school. However, it is not possible to replicate the classroom environment at home and the work has had to be adjusted to make it accessible. For this reason, we ask that on their return to school your child makes every effort to speak to their teacher and copy up the work they have missed from class.

Kind Regards

Director of Lower School
