Following an announcement by Education Minister Kirsty Williams that all schools in Wales will close for ‘early Easter holidays’ at the end of the day tomorrow, Laura Doel, director of NAHT Cymru, said:
“NAHT Cymru welcomes the announcement by Education Minister Kirsty Williams to close all schools from tomorrow.
“Details of how we can support vulnerable children and children of key workers are yet to be finalised, but school leaders and teachers will want to be part of the national response.
“Schools play a pivotal role as part of the social fabric of our communities and we will work with Welsh Government to make sure the support systems are in place to ensure key workers can remain in work.
“School leaders have been under immense pressure in recent days and have worked tirelessly to support their staff, their pupils and their families. As committed public servants they will want to continue to play their part during these times of uncertainty.
“As a union, we will continue to work with Welsh Government to ensure that we all fulfil our civic duty to keep Wales open.”
