    CLOSURE DUE TO SNOW:

     

    We would like to draw your attention to the following procedures which we will use in the event of the school having to close due to severe weather or for an emergency.

     

    EMERGENCY PROCEDURES IN THE EVENT OF SCHOOL CLOSURE:

    • In the event that there is severe weather before the school day and you suspect that the school will be closed, please look on the Powys website at www.powys.gov.uk.  If possible this information will be posted on the website before 7.15 am.
    • When the school is to re-open following heavy snowfall, if some children are not able to get to school due to poor traveling conditions then Parents should not put themselves or their children at risk.  Absence in such circumstances is perfectly understandable.

     

    • Please DO NOT RING THE SCHOOL.  If we are open, we need the phone lines to be free so staff can ring us with updates as to the progress of their journey

     

    • If the school has to be closed during the school day then all parents will be contacted and arrangements made for your child to be collected.    No child will be sent home without the consent of parents and a member of staff will remain in school until every child is collected.

     

    For obvious reasons, please ensure that your contact details are up to date and that any changes to your telephone numbers and e-mail addresses have been given into the school office.

    Yours sincerely

    Mrs Whitticase

    CAU’R YSGOL OHERWYDD EIRA

    Hoffwn dynnu eich sylw at y camau y byddwn yn eu cymryd os bydd angen cau’r ysgol oherwydd tywydd garw neu mewn argyfwng.

     

    CAMAU BRYS OS OES ANGEN CAU’R YSGOL

    • Os ceir tywydd garw cyn dechrau’r diwrnod ysgol ac rydych yn amau bydd yr ysgol ar gau, edrychwch ar wefan Powys www.powys.gov.uk. Os yn bosib, bydd yr wybodaeth yma yn cael ei roi ar yr wefan cyn 7.15 yb.

     

    • Gofynnwn i chi BEIDIO FFONIO’R YSGOL. Os ydym yn agored, bydd angen cadw’r llinell ffôn yn rhydd er mwyn gwybod os yw’r staff yn medru teithio i’r ysgol.

     

    • Os oes rhaid cau’r ysgol yn ystod y dydd, byddwn yn cysylltu gyda’r holl rieni a bydd angen trefnu casglu’r plant o’r ysgol. Ni fydd unrhyw blentyn yn cael ei anfon adre onibai ein bod wedi derbyn caniatâd rhieni a bydd aelod o staff yn aros nes i bob plentyn gael ei hebrwng o’r ysgol. 

     

    Gofynnwn i chi sicrhau bod eich manylion cyswllt yn gywir ac eich bod wedi rhoi gwybod  i swyddfa’r ysgol am unrhyw newid rhif ffôn neu gyfeiriad e-bost.

     

    Yn gywir,

     

     

    Mrs Whitticase

    COMMUNICABLE DISEASES

     

     

    YSGOL RHIW-BECHAN POLICY ON COMMUNICABLE DISEASES IN SCHOOLS

    A child should not be accepted at the beginning of a school session if it is obvious that he/she isn’t well and if a child develops symptoms of any infectious illness during a session.  Reasonable steps should be taken to avoid cross-infection.  In order to operate a responsible policy towards preventing the spread of infection, it is recommended that the following guidelines regarding exclusion periods are followed.


    Note that the LEA don’t recommend exclusion for pupils who are infested with headlice.  However, it is school policy to take reasonable steps to avoid cross-infection.  Therefore, when headlice are detected parents should be contacted and pupils sent home for treatment.  They should only return when there is no evidence of live lice on the child.

    Teachers should consult the headteacher or acting headteacher before excluding a pupil.

    Please find below guidance on exclusion periods for communicable diseases.

    Eye Infections

    Please do not send your child to school until the infection has cleared.

    Sickness and Diarrhoea

    Your child must not attend school for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.

    Chicken Pox

    Your child must not attend school 6 days from the appearance of the rash or until spots have scabbed over.

    German Measles (Rubella)

    Your child must not attend school for 4 days from the appearance of the rash.

    Measles

    Your child must not attend the school for 7 days from the appearance of the rash.

    Mumps

    Your child must not attend the school for 10 days or until the swelling has gone down.

    Whooping Cough

    Yourchild must not attend school until both the cough and whooping have ceased for 14 days.

    Skin Infection eg. Impetigo

    Medical advice needs to be sought and treatment given.  Where practical, the infection needs to be covered to avoid infection through contact.

    Slapped Cheek (Fifth) Disease

    • This is a viral illness that usually affects children, but can also affect adults.
    • Symptoms include fever, rash (the cheeks often have a bright red “slapped cheek” (appearance) and sometimes joint pains.
    • Transmission is from person to person by respiratory droplets.
    • The incubation period is usually between 13-18 days.
    • The infectious period is from 7 days before the onset of the rash.  Once the rash appears, a person is  no longer infectious.
    • Children who are immunocompromised or have certain types of anaemias can have more severe symptoms.
    • Occasionally Parvovirus can affect an unborn baby.  If a woman is exposed early in pregnancy (before 20 weeks) she should inform her GP and whoever is providing her antenatal care.

    GWYLIAU YSTOD Y TYMOR/HOLIDAYS DURING TERM TIME

     

    Tregynon, Newtown, Powys SY16 3EH

    Annwyl Riant,

    GWYLIAU YN YSTOD Y TYMOR

    Rwy'n siŵr eich bod yn ymwybodol bod presenoldeb yn flaenoriaeth genedlaethol a lleol yng Nghymru. Mae’r chwe Chyfarwyddwr o fewn consortiwm ERW, sy'n cynnwys Powys eisoes wedi gwneud y penderfyniad y dylai pob absenoldeb oherwydd cymryd gwyliau yn ystod y tymor yn cael ei ystyried yn anawdurdodedig gan ysgolion.

    Mae'r cysylltiad rhwng presenoldeb da a safonau uchel yn un cryf iawn ac fel y cyfryw, mae'r Cyfarwyddwyr yn awyddus i annog cyfraddau presenoldeb uchel ac i annog rhieni i beidio â chymryd gwyliau yn ystod y tymor. Felly, mae'r penderfyniad wedi'i wneud na ddylai unrhyw absenoldebau oherwydd gwyliau gael eu hawdurdodi gan unrhyw bennaeth o fewn y chwe Awdurdod Lleol yn y consortiwm o fis Medi 2013 ymlaen.

    Mae cymryd gwyliau yn ystod y tymor yn golygu bod plant yn colli amser pwysig yn yr ysgol - yn addysgol ac o ran gweithgareddau ysgol eraill. Mae’n anodd iawn i ddisgyblion ddal i fyny ar y gwaith y maent wedi'i golli. Mewn diwrnod ysgol prysur, mae'n anodd i ysgolion ddod o hyd i'r amser ychwanegol i helpu plentyn i ddal i fyny ac nid yn unig o safbwynt gwaith academaidd, ond hefyd ochr gymdeithasol bywyd ysgol a’r effaith ar les disgyblion.

    Mae digon o ymchwil addysgol sy'n cysylltu cyrhaeddiad disgyblion â phresenoldeb. Mae cyfradd presenoldeb o 90% yn yr ysgol yn cyfateb i golli ½ diwrnod yr wythnos. Byddai hyn yn golygu colli 4 wythnos cyfan yn ystod y flwyddyn ysgol!

    Nid oes gan rieni hawl cyfreithiol i fynd â phlant allan o'r ysgol ar wyliau ac o ganlyniad, ni fydd unrhyw absenoldeb oherwydd gwyliau yn ystod y tymor yn cael ei awdurdodi gan yr ysgol.

     

    Yn ddiffuant,

     

     

    Mrs Allyson Whitticase

    Pennaeth

     

    Tregynon, Newtown, Powys SY16 3EH

                                        Telephone No: 01686 650 303 Fax: 01686 650159

    5.9.13

     

    Dear Parent,

    HOLIDAYS DURING TERM TIME

    I’m sure that you are aware that attendance is a national and local priority in Wales.

    The six directors within the South West and Mid Wales Education Consortium, which includes Powys have already  taken the decision that all absences due to pupils being taken on holiday during term time should be deemed to be unauthorised by schools. 

     

    The link between good attendance and high standards is a very strong one and as such, the Directors are eager to encourage high attendance rates and to discourage holidays being taken during term time. Therefore the decision has been taken that all absences due to holidays should not be authorised by any Headteachers within the six Local Authorities in the South West and Mid Wales Consortium from September 2013.

     

    Taking a holiday during term time means that children miss important school time – both educationally and for other school activities. It will be difficult for them to catch up on work they have missed. In a busy school day, it is difficult for schools to find the extra time to help a child catch up and it’s not only the academic work but also missing out on the social side of school life can also impact on pupils’ wellbeing.

     

    There is plenty of educational research which links pupil attainment with attendance. 90% attendance at school equates to ½ day a week missed. This would be 4 whole weeks missed over the school year!

     

    Parents do not have a legal right to take children out of school on holiday and consequently, any absence due to holidays during term time will not be authorised by the school.  If you have already sent in a holiday request form then this will be noted but any absence will be logged down as unauthorised.  If your child is absent for any other reason, then you should contact the school by 9.30.am;  failure to do so will be followed up by a phone call from a member of staff.

     

    Thank you for your co-operation.

     

    Yours sincerely,

     

     

    Mrs Allyson Whitticase

    Acting Headteacher
