Prynhawn Da / Good afternoon

 Bydd ysgolion Sir Benfro ar gau fory (18.2.22) oherwydd y rhagolygon ar gyfer gwyntoedd cryfion ar hyd y sir.

Gallai’r gwyntoedd hynny gyrraedd rhwng 70-80 milltir yr awr, gydag hyrddiadau cryfach fyth. Mae gwybodaeth wedi’n cyrraedd gan y Fforwm Gwytnwch Lleol (Local Resilience Forum) ynghyd â sefydliadau megis Llywodraeth Cymru, y Swyddfa Dywydd a Chyfoeth Naturiol Cymru bod yr amodau o ganlyniad i’r tywydd yn debygol o achosi difrod sylweddol i adeiladau, gan wneud teithio’n beryglus.

 Nid ydym am gymryd risgiau di-angen o ran diogelwch plant, pobl ifanc a staff.  Bydd disgyblion yn medru parhau gyda’u dysgu gartref, gydag ysgolion yn gosod tasgau pwrpasol ar gyfer 18.2.22 Dylai pob disgybl a aelod o staff aros gartref.

 Cadwch yn ddiogel os gwelwch yn dda. 

 Pembrokeshire Schools will be closed tomorrow (18.2.22) due to the very high winds forecast across the county.

Winds could reach up to 70-80 miles per hour, with stronger gusts possible. Information has been provided by the Local Resilience Forum, and organisations such as Welsh Government, Met Office and Natural Resources Wales that the conditions as a result of the storm are highly likely to cause significant damage to buildings and travelling in such conditions would be dangerous.

We do not wish to take any unnecessary risks and compromise the safety of children, young people and staff. Pupils will be able to continue with their learning at home with schools setting appropriate tasks for the 18.2.22.

 All pupils and staff should stay at home. 

Please keep safe.

Pembrokeshire Play Sufficiency Assessment 2022

As you may be aware, Pembrokeshire County Council has a responsibility to conduct a Play Sufficiency Assessment (PSA), ensuring a sufficient contribution from a range of partners and organisations such as yours.

Premier Advisory Group (PAG) have been commissioned by the Council to support the delivery of the 2022 PSA.

As part of the delivery of the PSA, they are consulting with children, young people, parents/ carers and wider stakeholders, to support the Council to develop play provision that meets the needs of Pembrokeshire communities. This includes supporting opportunities for play, identifying any gaps across the county and establishing an action plan to meet the needs of children and young people.

We would greatly appreciate if you could distribute the following two surveys to your pupils and parents/carers for them to complete, especially via your social media channels. Please note that all surveys are in both English and Welsh.

The survey for children and young people is here: PCC-PSA-CYP.

The survey for parents/carers is here: Parents.

In addition, please could you complete the following survey which will ascertain your views on play across Pembrokeshire, and distribute to other members of staff who are in a position to provide responses:

Your participation is greatly appreciated and will support the Council to understand how play can be improved and emerging challenges can be addressed, as well as details on how the Council can support schools to develop play facilities and opportunities.

Should you require any further information about this component of the project, or our role in the PSA, please feel free to contact Yashna Smart at: or telephone: 07833 621279.
