Message from the Headteacher regarding Amber Weather Warning - Heat

Sunday 17th July 2022


Dear Parent/Carer

As I am sure you are all aware, Wales has been issued with an amber warning of extreme heat by the Met Office, which is in place from today until 23:59 on Tuesday 19th July 2022. The school issued advice from Public Health Wales which can be accessed through the school’s twitter page and on our website at: https://www.ysgolbryncastell.co.uk/news/detail/hot-weather-information/.


It is strongly recommended that pupils should wear loose, light-coloured appropriate clothing to help keep cool and sunhats with wide brims to avoid sunburn. Pupils should also come to school with a refillable water bottle and sun cream.


Parts of the school building can become very hot and we will continue to monitor the situation over the next few days and make appropriate adjustments such as supporting pupils to work outdoors in shaded areas or relocating to cooler parts of the building. 


Further information will be issued as required and sent out via our usual communication channels.


Many thanks for your ongoing support; enjoy the sunshine safely.




Mrs Helen Ridout
