Kirsty Williams, Minister Of Education - Written Statement On Summer Examinations 2020 

We are in an unprecedented period, one that is changing hour-by-hour, and governments around the world are having to make quick decisions. We recognise the worry and anxiety that the uncertainty around the summer exam series was causing. Today I met with Qualifications Wales and WJEC to consider options that are in the best interests of our learners. We recognise that there are no easy choices but we have agreed that the best way forward is not to proceed with summer exam series. Learners due to sit their GCSEs and A levels this summer will be awarded a fair grade to recognise their work, drawing on the range of information that is available. We will be working with the sector to announce further details shortly but wanted to give this early certainty. We also won’t be using the results to publish performance measure outcomes in 2020.

Use Of School Drop Off/pick Up Zones 

When dropping off or picking up pupils please ensure the Drop Off and Pick Up Zones are used.

Pupil Reading Books

A reminder to parents and pupils that pupils should always have a reading book in their bag. This could be a book being read for pleasure or one for studying in school. There is dedicated reading time built into most school days; please ensure pupils are properly equipped.

20190925-Guidance on keeping the 3G pitch in top conditionGuidance On Keeping The School New 3g Pitch In Top Condition

After Autumn half term Ysgol Harri Tudur will gain access to a new 3G sports pitch. Built on the site of the former Pembroke School, this artificial sports surface, for rugby and football only, provides a top class facility. But it will need to be looked after, in particular with pupils wearing the correct footwear.

The document below provides further details on what is allowed and, more importantly, what is not; note in particular running spikes and metal studs will ruin the surface as will dropping chewing gum on the pitch. Please help the school keep the pitch in perfect condition.

Mobile Phones At Ysgol Harri Tudur

Mobile phones disrupt learning. The school operates an out of sight out of mind approach to mobile phones. Pupils/students must turn off their phones and leave them in their bags.

Alternatively, they can give it to the class teacher, switched off, for safe keeping until the end of the lesson. They must not use their phones inside the school building at any time. Pupils/students will be reminded of this at meet and greet. If they take their phone out during a lesson, or if their phone rings during the lesson, the teacher will confiscate it and will give it to reception where it may be collected by their parent/carer or guardian at the end of the school day.

Pupils/students bring their phones to school at their own risk. The school accepts no responsibility for any loss or damage or theft of any device. The use of smart watches by pupils/students is prohibited during the school day. The approach has been adopted in view of the increasing misuse of cameras and escalating risk of theft. If seen they will be confiscated by the member of staff and given to reception for collection by the parent/carer or guardian at the end of the school day.

Trespassing on Bush House Property

A small number of pupils have been trespassing on Bush House land on their way to and from school. Pupils seen have been in uniform and are being captured on CCTV by Bush House.

If this trespassing continues Bush House will use this CCTV coverage to contact the police and undertake prosecution action.

Please keep to the public paths to access school.

Parking

Drop Off Zone

Please ensure you do not park in the school Drop Off Zone. It is there for a clear purpose and cars inappropriately parked add to the traffic congestion at the end of the school day.

Use of the Main Car Park

Please ensure you follow the direction markers on the road within the school Main Car Park. This will assist effective traffic control and help to avoid accidents.

At all times please ensure vehicle speed is kept to no more than 10 mph.
