Important Information Regarding Hub Provision (updated 30.03.20)
Cardiff Council have now set up a central registration process to register your child in a hub school if you are a key worker. This will need to be used for all future applications for a place in Pontprennau, our hub school. Currently this is only for key workers in health and social care and the emergency services.
If you would like a place for your child in the future, please click on this link: http://www.cardiff.gov.uk/keyworkerchildcare. These applications will need to be made weekly. If you have applied for and have accessed a place this week, you will still need to apply for a place on a weekly basis in the future.
If you have a nursery aged child who requires care please contact the Family Gateway on: 03000133133

Information about Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 20th March
A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. This means that if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus, they have not been infected.
The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection
Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, such as older people and/or those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. There is no evidence that children are more affected than other age groups – very few cases have yet to have been reported in children. However, children may carry the virus and it is therefore vital that we limit the amount of children attending childcare settings during the closure. Please only make use of childcare settings if there is no other way your child(ren) could remain safe at home. Though the offer of childcare is open to any parent who works in a key worker role (initially for those in Health and Social Care, Public Safety and National Security or Education and Childcare), we suggest only taking up the offer if you both work within a key worker role. This will limit social contact and could save lives.
How COVID-19 is spread?
From what we know about other coronaviruses, spread of COVID-19 is most likely to happen when there is close contact (within 2 metres) with an infected person. It is likely that the risk increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus. There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including
Throughout the UK Government response phases to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) the school will work closely with relevant authorities to make decisions which are in the interests of the all members of the community. However, to support the safety, wellbeing and continued learning of the children the school asks that all families
We appreciate that this is a worrying time for everyone. If you haven't already done so, we would encourage you to talk to your children about Coronavirus. BBC Newsround provides regular updates and information which may be helpful for you to discuss with your children.
