Update to Parents – 16th July

Gowerton School wishes to thank you for your support and understanding during the lockdown and the ‘return to school’. It has been a difficult time for our whole school community. We appreciate what everyone has done and continues to do during these unprecedented times.


We will continue to update the website and our social media channels during the summer as, and when, we are given further information.


This is the latest information as of 16th July:

Canteen / lunch provision-

The Canteen will be closed until Friday 11th September.  Pupils will be required to bring in a packed lunch until it re-opens.


From Monday 14th September the canteen will be open but operating on a limited service. The expectation is that pupils will purchase a take away meal. We reiterate our original message of whenever possible, pupils should bring in a packed lunch for the foreseeable future.

eFSM pupils – the system that has been in place during lockdown will continue until Friday 11th September (BACs or food bags).


PE lessons-

We have been advised in recent guidance that pupils will not be allowed to access the changing rooms in a PE lesson. Pupils will be allowed to wear their school PE kit for the day that they have a timetabled PE lesson.



It is our understanding that the bus service will run as normal from September. This is subject to change and we will update our website if necessary. Based on recent information pupils will be expected to wear masks while travelling on the school bus.



We are awaiting further information on whether pupils will need to wear a mask on school site. As mentioned above it will be necessary to wear a mask on the school buses.



Letters have been posted to Years 7-11 providing information on the first 2 weeks in September, a letter from our Chair of Governors and your child’s timetable for 2020/2021.
