Education, Catering, Environmental Health and Health & Safety Officers have met to discuss the re-introduction of breakfast clubs within schools. In consideration of:
- The rise in cases
- Local lockdown restrictions throughout Wales
- The complexity of risks associated with breakfast clubs i.e. the mixing of staff and pupils
It has been determined that the Council is not in a position to safely reintroduce breakfast club provision at this time.
We will be reviewing the provision of breakfast club throughout the Autumn-term 2020, with a view to reintroducing them in schools in early 2021. We fully appreciate that this is not the news that many families were hoping for, but want to assure you that we are doing all that we can to ensure the health and safety of all pupils, staff and families.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding
Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council
