School Holiday Enrichment Programme

Last Updated: 27th May 2021

I am pleased to announce that Ysgol Cwm Brombil in conjunction with NPT council will be running the SHEP (School Holiday Enrichment Programme) project for pupils in year 3 / 4 /5 / 6 / 7 and 8. It will take place at Ysgol Cwm Brombil and run for 3 weeks during the summer holidays 2021. The scheme will take place from Monday to Friday, starting on 2nd August and finishing on 20th August. The scheme will start at 9am and finish at 2pm each day (this does not include travel arrangements).

The aim of the scheme is for pupils to be provided with a number of fun activities over the three weeks involving specialist workshops and sporting activities (at least 2 hour per day). Pupils are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing that will enable them to take part in sport and exercise comfortably. Pupils will be provided with a free healthy breakfast and lunch. The scheme is free of charge but pupils who wish to attend need to sign up for a 2 week period as a minimum.

Transport will be provided for those pupils who live more than 3 miles away from the school (more details to follow). Parents / guardians must be aware that the school does not open until 8.45am and the activities will finish at 2pm.

During the scheme there will always be a qualified first aider and safeguarding officer present. The activities have been designed for pupils to integrate with one another and build on their communication and team work skills. Pupils will work in three distinctive groups year 3 & 4, Year 5 & 6 and finally year 7 and 8. The scheme will also help with pupils who have struggled during the pandemic and this will promote a smooth transition ready for September. Under current COVID regulations the majority of the sessions will take place outside weather permitting. When pupils are inside undertaking activities pupils will have to adhere to social distancing measures and when appropriate wear a mask. If you require any further information please do not hesitate in contacting myself.
