Update from the School Based Counselling Service

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, the need to adhere to Government guidelines in relation to self- isolation and managing staff sickness, the School Based Counselling Service is operating at limited capacity and we are unable to receive any new requests for counselling at this time or provide an online counselling service. However, we will continue to offer telephone counselling to those individuals who are currently receiving counselling from our service where appropriate. If you are a parent and have concerns around your child’s mental and emotional wellbeing or a young person concerned about your mental and emotional wellbeing then please contact us via the methods below and we will endeavour to signpost you to appropriate services. Alternatively, Childline can be contacted on 0800 1111. Please be mindful that as the service is operating at a limited capacity, whilst we strive to answer emails in a timely manner, there may be a delay in responses.

Telephone: 01639 763362


Updated 22nd March 10:35pm

As a school, we are taking every precaution to safeguard our pupils and staff. It is essential that we remain vigilant to the symptoms and exercise high levels of personal hygiene, including effective hand washing. 

The latest information is that you should immediately self-isolate at home for 14 days if you or any member of your household have a recent onset of:
– High temperature and/or
– A new continuous cough.

Use the NHS symptom checker and take advice from Public Health Wales if in any doubt.

  • Washing hands – please remind your child(ren)  to regularly wash their hands for 20 seconds (singing Happy Birthday twice = 20 seconds). To sneeze into their elbow, do not hold hands playtimes, no high fives and use elbow bumps instead.

The council in partnership with its schools will continue to monitor this situation and communicate relevant messages directly to parents / carers.  Please check this webpage for updates.
