Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have just received the following email from the local authority:

‘The local authority’s priority is to educate children and young people, and we will do everything in our power to keep our schools open.  Any decision to close our schools is always taken as a last resort.

However, as a result of national weather warnings and to ensure the safety of pupils, parents and staff, the local authority advises all schools to close Thursday and Friday this week (1st and 2nd March 2018)

Currently the local authority expects schools to open as normal on Monday 5th March unless further weather indicates otherwise.’

As a result of this advice, Maesteg School will be closed to all pupils and staff on Thursday and Friday.

Yours faithfully,

H.Jones (Headteacher)
