Covid-19 – What you need to know before your child goes back to school

If you’re a parent or carer, you’ll know that schools across Wrexham will be opening for the new term from Tuesday, September 1.

For most schools it’ll be a phased return over two weeks, with different year groups returning on different days, and your school will have been in touch to confirm arrangements.

We want the return to be as safe as possible for everyone and we’ve published information on what parents and pupils can expect next week and what’s also expected of pupils and their parents/carers.

School transport will be operating when pupils return and parents/carers can be assured that there’s an emphasis on safety for pupils travelling via school buses or taxis.

Those pupils 11 years and over are required to wear face coverings when they return to school using home to school transport. There’ll also be regular cleaning of transport.

We’ve prepared some frequently asked questions and a protocol so please make sure you’re aware of everything that’s expected.
