Updated Guidance ~ Face Coverings on School Yards

Please see below ~ updated guidance from the Welsh Assembly Government:


Dear Parents and Carers,

Wearing of face coverings (primary schools)

The Welsh Government has updated its guidance on the use of face coverings in schools.

To reduce the risk of transmission amongst parents and relatives, please wear masks when visiting school, and at drop-off and collection areas. Maintaining clear social distance at the school gates will also reduce risk and set a good example to pupils.

If you have a secondary school aged child, be aware that face coverings should now be worn by year 7 and above pupils in all areas outside the classroom and be worn on dedicated school transport for year 7 and up.

Please follow these guidelines and encourage your child to follow theirs too.

Along with regular hand washing/sanitising and social distancing, this will reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 at school as far as possible.

The guidance has been made stronger to keep you and your families as safe as possible. The updated guidance is based on new advice from Welsh Government’s Technical Advisory Group, as we learn more about the way COVID-19 is transmitted.

Thank you for your help in doing all we can – together – to keep ourselves and others safe.


In line with the new guidance, any parent, carer, adult or older sibling who is picking up or dropping off  a child at Maes-y-Llan, must now wear a face covering on the school site, unless medically exempt from doing so. 

Thank you in advance for your understanding and support with this new request. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us or speak to me any morning before school.

Cofion cynnes

Mr Hamilton
