RYDAL Penrhos school in Colwyn Bay is providing full day care for children of keyworkers.

The school will be open from 8.30am until 5.30pm and will providing snacks, lunch and a hot tea.

A spokesman for the school said: “We will be opening all the way through the school holidays including weekends and bank holidays for keyworker children. There will be no charge for this service.

“We understand that shift patterns can change rapidly and ask parents to let the school know about their child attending school as soon as they know themselves.”

He added: “We are practising social distancing at school but it is not practical to keep young children at a two metres distance so there will be some instances of closer contact. We are carefully sterilising the environment each day and taking the temperature of all staff and pupils upon arrival.

“We are able to provide a bus to and from school for pupils whose keyworker parents are unable to do this.Pupils at the school will work from home via a remote learning system and teachers will set work during the holidays."
