We have just received a lovely message from Twinkl. One of our parents, we don’t know who has posted the message below.
It’s such delightful feedback and very much appreciated. We also want to use this opportunity to say how much we appreciate our families and their support too.
“At the beginning of the fist lockdown Bangor Independent had prepared a pack for each child in the school to take home with them, they organised a way so that each child had the ability to get on line to take part in classroom learning remotely. Every day Monday to Friday they did not fail to be there remotely for all the children not just for an hour but all day, they would have a 40min session then the children would do some work and then later the teacher would log on again and make sure the children were ok and then they would set the afternoon work , and The older classes even had cookery classes with the help of a grown up at home, the children loved the online learning though preferred the idea of being in school, they would have a weekly assembly on a Friday where the whole school connected together so that they could all say hello. The teachers would bring books both reading and exercise books around to the homes of the children and leave them on the doorstep and take back any reading books the children had finished, I can honestly say the children did not feel like they had lost out on learning and still managed to talk to friends throughout. When the school managed to open again they have made sure the children have been able to go to school safely and as a parent I have felt confident that they are safe. And not once so far have they had to close due to a COVID related case. I truly feel like the staff went above and beyond with all the children, and what made life easier was that all parent go to know each other better through a group chat set up by the school staff, this made life so much easier to help the kids with their work. The Children love their school so much and always say its like another family to them. I truly believe the school deserves recognition for all they have done and it would mean so much to the children to see their teachers and their school to be awarded for all their hard work that has been made during this very trying time.17/06/2021

Teaching from home during lockdown April – June 2020

Without doubt all the teachers at Bangor Independent School would sooner be in the classroom teaching our wonderful pupils. However, in order to safeguard children, parents and teachers at this unprecedented time, teaching continues through online learning. All the teachers are working hard to ensure the continuation and progression of the children’s education. The team are preparing and delivering lessons, adapting work to create engaging tasks and maintaining contact with their pupils. We are proud of how our team, children and parents have adapted and embraced this new way of learning. We look forward to seeing the children’s faces every day as we teach lessons, deliver learning and set tasks.

Advice for Schools and Educational Setting


A letter to our parents from Mr Gash, Head of Bangor Independent School – May 2020

Dear parent,

I am writing to provide clarification regarding the opening of schools in Wales, particularly as the lock-down rules are being reviewed in England. So far, there is no concrete advice for the re-opening of schools in Wales.

The Welsh Government’s response so far has been more cautious. I continue to receive information from Welsh Government and Estyn. The message is still one of continued patience and observance of the lock-down rules. The latest guidance from the Welsh Minister for Education is that before schools can open at all, the following requirements must be satisfied 

with reference to the coronavirus:

1. The safety, and mental, emotional,
and physical wellbeing of students and staff.

2. Continuing contribution to the
national effort and strategy to fight spread of Covid-19

3. Having the confidence of parents,
staff and students – based on evidence and information – so that they can
plan ahead

4. Ability to prioritise learners at
key points, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds

5. Consistency with the Welsh
Government’s framework for decision making, to have guidance in place to
support measures such as distancing, managing attendance and wider
protective actions.

 When schools in Wales do open up,
it is not clear how this will be done There has been a suggestion that
certain classes and age groups will be prioritised, such as year 6 and any
other groups facing exams. As soon as I know anything concrete, I will let
you know.

However, I can assure you that when BIS
does re-open, we will do so in accordance with the advice from all
relevant governing bodies, to keep all of our children safe.

In the meantime, do not hesitate to
contact me if there is anything I can help with.

Kind Regards

Mr Gash
