Introducing Our New Headteacher, Mr. David Haynes


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Interim Headteacher of Ysgol Greenhill School, and tell you how excited I am to be working alongside you, to ensure our children have the best learning experience and maximise their full potential during the next academic year.

I have spent my entire thirty-year teaching career in Pembrokeshire, having started in Milford Haven School in 1991 before moving on to Fishguard High school in 1997, and then joining the team at St. Davids in January 2011 as a senior leader.  During this period, I gained broad experience, and fulfilled a number of leadership roles which were central to school improvement.  Having been a successful headteacher in Pembrokeshire for nine years, I am passionate about improving the life chances of our young people so that they can play an important role in society, ensuring that Pembrokeshire is a wonderful place to live and work.

I am conscious that the school has faced a great deal of external pressures over the last few years, and I want to reassure you that I will be giving the Ysgol Greenhill School community my full commitment.  I will be visible around  the school every day, and have high expectations of everyone who will play a part in our school improvement journey –  pupils, their parents/carers and staff.  In order to support the learning ethos, I look forward to visiting the children in their classrooms regularly.

I am also very much looking forward to meeting you, as hearing your views is important to me.  I intend to hold regular face-to-face stakeholder events during the year, if Welsh Government operational guidance for schools allows.  This will allow you to hear, and contribute to, our plans.  In the meantime, should you have any views that you wish to share with me, please contact me via email at greenhill@hwbmail.net.

This term, we will be returning to normal school hours, with the start of the school day commencing with lesson 1 at 8:40 a.m. promptly, and the school day ending at 3:20 p.m., following lesson 5.  I would also like to remind you that all pupils in years 7 – 11 will be required to remain on the site throughout the day in line with our safeguarding policy. Welsh Government guidance states that pupils will be expected to wear face coverings inside the school building, but not during lessons.  

I wish you a very enjoyable and rewarding academic year.

Yours sincerely,

D. Haynes

Headteacher

PM Announcement – 23rd March 2020

 

The arrangements are set out in the following:

 

Minimising social contact is the most important way that collectively we can tackle COVID-19 and protect the NHS. When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That is why the government is now introducing three new measures.

 

1.    Requiring people to stay at home, except for essential activities

2.    Closing non-essential shops and community spaces

3.    Stopping public gatherings of more than two people

 

The Government expects every citizen to comply with these new measures. They are vital to saving lives and preventing the spread of the infection.

 

These measures will come into effect on Tuesday 24 March 2020. They will initially last for three weeks, until after the Easter weekend, when the Government will update.

 

1. STAYING AT HOME

 

You should only leave the house for one of four reasons:

 

●     shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.

 

●     exercise, such as a run, walk, or cycle. Making sure you exercise is particularly important at this time, but must be alone, or with your immediate household, and not more than once a day.

 

●     any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.

 

●     travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home. Your employer should take all reasonable steps to support you to work from home wherever possible.

 

There are some issues which we need to resolve including children travelling to school to collect free school meals.  These four reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home.

 

These measures must be followed by everyone.  Shielding arrangements which are already under development will continue.

 

2. CLOSING SHOPS AND PUBLIC SPACES

 

Last week, the Government asked certain businesses – including pubs, cinemas and theatres – to close.  In Wales Caravan parks, campsites, tourist hotspots and popular beauty spots have been closed to visitors. The Government is now extending this requirement to a further set of business and other venues, including:

 

●     all non-essential retail stores – this will include clothing and electronics stores; hair, beauty and nail salons; and outdoor and indoor markets, excluding grocery markets.

 

●     libraries, community centres, and youth centres.

 

●     indoor and outdoor leisure facilities such as bowling alleys, arcades, and soft play facilities.

 

●     communal places within parks, such as playgrounds, sports courts and outdoor gyms.

 

●     places of worship, except for funerals attended by immediate families.

 

●     hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, campsites, caravan parks, and boarding houses for commercial/leisure use (excludes permanent residents).

 

More detailed information can be found here [MHCLG guidance] or in Wales, here, including a full list of those businesses and other venues that must close. Businesses and other venues not on this list may remain open.

 

3. STOPPING PUBLIC GATHERINGS

 

To make sure people are social distancing, the Government is also stopping all public gatherings of more than two people.

 

There are only two exceptions to this rule:

 

●     where the gathering is of a group of people who live together – this means that a parent can, for example, take their children to the shops if there is no option to leave them at home; or

 

●     where the gathering is essential for work purposes – but workers should be trying to minimise all meetings and other gatherings in the workplace.

 

In addition, the Government is stopping social events, including weddings, baptisms and other religious ceremonies. This will exclude funerals attended by immediate family.

 

DELIVERING THESE NEW MEASURES

 

These measures will reduce our day to day contact with other people. They are a vital part of our efforts to  reduce the rate of transmission of COVID-19.

 

The Government expects every citizen to comply with these new measures.

 

If people do not follow these new measures, we will not reduce the spread of the infection. The Government will therefore be putting in place measures to enforce them, including through fines where people do not comply.

 

The Government understands that these measures will severely restrict citizens’ quality of life and economic activity. But they are considered an essential temporary response to bring down the spread of COVID-19.

 

They will initially last for the next three weeks, until the end of the Easter weekend, at which point the Government will review them.

 

 

** Departments are working up more detailed plans and arrangements around this announcement and further details of which essentials services are running still, and those all running from home working, will be made once more detail is available **

RESIDENTS URGED TO BE ALERT TO COVID-19 SYMPTOMS FOLLOWING CLUSTER OF CASES

Public Health Wales, Pembrokeshire County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board are urging members of the public to be alert to COVID-19 symptoms following the identification of a cluster of cases in the Tenby area.

The 22 confirmed cases are linked to social and sporting events and local schools and have generated a large number of contacts since the first cases were confirmed on Saturday, 12 June. 

A number of individuals, including pupils, are currently isolating and close contacts of the positive cases continue to be traced.

From Monday 21 June to Sunday 4 July, a mobile testing unit will be available for local residents in and around Tenby to access if they have symptoms.

This is based at Salterns Car Park, Marsh Road, Tenby, SA70 8DU.  To book a test visit the UK portal https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or ring 119.

Residents can protect themselves and others from Coronavirus by remaining at least two metres away from everyone else, washing their hands regularly, and by wearing a face covering where required. 

Residents should take up the vaccine when offered, and self-isolate and get a test if they or anyone in their household develop symptoms.

As well as the three most common symptoms of Coronavirus – a fever, a new continuous cough, or a loss/change of taste and smell – people with any of the following, wider symptoms that are persistent and/or unusual for them are also strongly encouraged to get a PCR test:

  • Mild summer cold symptoms – including sore throat, runny nose, headache
  • Flu-like symptoms, including myalgia (muscle ache or pain); excessive tiredness; persistent headache; runny nose or blocked nose; persistent sneezing; sore throat and/or hoarseness, shortness of breath or wheezing
  • Generally feeling unwell and a history of being in contact with a known COVID-19 case
  • Any new or change in symptoms following a previous negative test

If you have any of the above symptoms, even if you have been vaccinated, please stay home and book a PCR test through the UK portal https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or ringing 119.

When booking your PCR test, you will also be asked about your symptoms: if you have wider summer cold or flu-like symptoms as described above, rather than the classic three symptoms, choose ‘None of these symptoms’ and then choose one of the following options to enable you to complete the booking:

  • My local council or health protection team has asked me to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms or
  • A GP or other healthcare professional has asked me to get a test.

The mobile testing unit has been set up in the Salterns car park, Tenby. If you have COVID-19 symptoms please book a test.
