Following the fire at Manorbier Church in Wales VC School yesterday (10/10/22) continuity arrangements are in place and all children will return to face to face learning tomorrow on a temporary basis at the Buttyland Caravan Park.
Families have been offered opportunities by the school staff to visit the site this afternoon.
Staff and education leaders are working to evaluate the situation and work is being undertaken to provide longer term contingency arrangements.
Arrangements are in place to provide additional support to learners and their families as needed.
When the fire broke out learners and staff were safely evacuated to Buttyland Caravan Park. Parents and carers collected learners from the Caravan Park.
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service were in attendance until early afternoon.
Pembrokeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Welsh Language Guy Woodham, said: “I would like to thank the staff and children for ensuring a safe evacuation in what would have been an upsetting situation.
“I would also like to express our gratitude to Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service for their swift response and bringing the fire under control.
“My Thanks must also go to the community of Manorbier for their patience and support, including Buttyland Caravan Park for their ongoing assistance.”
