National Reading and Numeracy Personalised Assessments – Summer Term

National Reading and Numeracy Personalised Assessments

Summer Term 2021

Pupils in Year 2 – Year 6 will be undertaking on-line Reading and Numeracy Assessments during the summer term.

I would like to reassure you that these assessments will be planned into everyday teaching and learning and will not place additional pressure on the children. They will be administered in a flexible and individual way, ensuring the well-being of our pupils is the priority. The well-being of our pupils always has a strong focus at Crymlyn Primary and this is even more important after such a difficult year.

The assessments will support staff to plan next steps for individual learners’ needs and progression. Feedback will be provided to parents before the end of the summer term as part of our end of year reporting processes.

School Reopening Update Information

Good afternoon all,

The Welsh Government has announced today that schools will begin to reopen for our Foundation Phase pupils from Monday 22nd February.

Foundation Phase includes all pupils in Nursery to Year 2. We will set out our detailed reopening plan and return days/details with you next week as we finalise our operational guidance and risk assessments to begin welcoming back our younger pupils.

Critical Care worker provision will continue at school. This provision will not run over the half term holiday.

Key Stage 2 Home Learning will continue following the half term holiday. We will also include our plan for the continuation of this provision in the update provided next week.

Thank you for your continued support at a very challenging time.

Take care.

Mrs Jefford

School Update

Welsh Government have announced that children will not be returning to school before half term. Younger children may be returning from February 22nd. However, this is dependent on a continuation in the fall of Covid-19 cases.

When a decision has been made by Welsh Government, and I am informed of this decision, I will update you further.

I will then write to inform you of how the planned return of pupils will work, re-publish operational guidance and risk assessments as we prepare to re-open.

Thank you for your continued support at such a difficult time.

Take care.

Mrs Jefford
