Things aren’t back to normal though in schools and here’s a reminder of what everyone sending their child to school should be asking their child to do to reinforce the stay safe message in order to keep Keep Wrexham Safe.


  • Follow any advice issued by your school
  • Remind your child to cover their mouth when they sneeze – wherever they are. Catch it, bin it, kill it
  • Remind your child to clean their hands regularly – including before and after they use school or public transport, and wherever they’re asked to by school staff
  • If you drop off and collect your children, please don’t congregate at the school gates Keep at least two metres away from other parents (outside your extended household), follow instructions from your school, and don’t hang around longer than needed
  • Don’t send your child to school if they – or anyone in your immediate household – has symptoms
  • Don’t send your child to school if they – or anyone in your immediate household – has been advised to take a Covid-19 test (for example, by contact tracers)
  • Please ensure your child has a face covering for use in communal areas when in school
  • Do not car share with anyone outside of your immediate household

Welsh Government has issued guidance for permitted travel in and out of the county borough for parents and staff. Please check it out if you have any further questions
