Anglesey schools to reopen on Monday 13 July

Anglesey school classrooms will open for the last week of term on Monday 13 July, under the Welsh Government's plans for pupils to catch up with their learning.

The authority has not reopened schools this week as others have because of the coronavirus outbreak at the 2 Sisters food processing plant at Llangefni.

However, Public Health Wales has confirmed there is no evidence the outbreak has led to significant transmission throughout the wider community.

Schools will now contact parents outlining the offer available for all children, from reception age, as they return to their classrooms for the last week of the summer term.

Anglesey's director of education, skills and young people, Rhys Howard Hughes, said: "Ultimately, parents will have to make the decision on whether their children return – but I want to reassure them that we are working with partners to make our schools as safe as possible.”
