Preseli MP Stephen Crabb has visited Ysgol Bro Gwaun to learn more about how the school and pupils are adjusting to Covid restrictions.
While visiting the secondary school in Fishguard, Stephen Crabb was given a tour of the school by head teacher Paul Edwards and assistant head teacher Alana Finn, who talked the MP through how the school had adapted since reopening in September.
The school has introduced a number of measures including one-way systems in corridors, face masks in communal areas, hand sanitising stations and staggered lunch times, in an effort to protect staff and pupils and ensure that their learning is not disrupted.
Stephen was also able to speak to some year 11 pupils about their thoughts on how lockdown had affected their learning and was able to answer any questions they had on the current situation and on wider topics, including climate change and jobs.
Following the visit, Stephen Crabb said: “It was good to see first-hand the measures the school are taking to offer a safe learning environment. I’m sure schools across the county are doing all that they can to minimise risk and maximise learning and Ysgol Bro Gwaun have certainly adapted well.
“This period has been incredibly difficult on our young people, who have had their education disrupted. Speaking to the year 11 pupils it was clear that there remain concerns about exams moving forward and this needs to be clarified. The pupils were a credit to the school and I enjoyed my discussion with them.
“I’m grateful to Paul Edwards for making the time to show me around Ysgol Bro Gwaun and it is reassuring to see the measures in place.”
