Letter to Parents/Carers 16th Sept

Dear parent / carer,

No doubt you will be aware of the announcement earlier today that from 6.00pm on Thursday this week (September 17th), RCT as a County Borough will go into a ‘local lockdown’ because of concern over the rising cases of coronavirus.

This means that people will not be able to enter or leave the area of RCT without a reasonable excuse, such as travel for work or education. It is important to state that our school will remain open ‘as normal’ as under these conditions both staff and students can travel to Pontypridd High each day.

We are all aware of the ways in which coronavirus is transmitted and whilst the vast majority of our students are showing excellent levels of respect and responsibility, it is another opportunity for us to emphasise the importance of good personal hygiene, maintaining a social distance and wearing a face covering when appropriate to do so. Our understanding is that a review of this ‘lockdown’ will be held in two weeks time.


As always my thanks for your continued support.


Huw Cripps
