December should remain open, although some unions have urged to end classes early.

Students at Blaenau Gwent have their last day of school on Wednesday before they go through to 18th. December go online.

The Welsh government said it would « expect schools to function as usual » unless there are « exceptional » public health reasons.

The 34-year-old former primary school teacher Victoria Rosser from Cwmbran brings her children out of school a week early at the age of five and eight.

« There is a lot of pressure on parents. I feel the pressure tremendously, « she said.

« The children would be devastated if they came into contact with another child next week who was positive. It would mean isolating throughout the holiday season.

« It would mean they couldn’t see their grandparents over Christmas. I’m also worried that they might pass it on to their grandparents. « 

The mother of four said she was also concerned about her own autoimmune condition and the health of her newborn daughter.

She said she told her children’s school that they would not send them next week, even though schools in Torfaen are open until they are 18. December are open.

« There is enough time to make sure they don’t come into contact with positive cases for the next two weeks and to make sure they are nice and safe to see family on Christmas Day, » she added.

« I’ve heard of many families who do this. Right now, I think a lot of parents want to take their kids with them for the last week. « 

Nic Cooke, 35, also from Cwmbran, made the same decision for her seven and eleven year olds.

« We had spoiled a lot of things for ourselves and had to adapt to new ways of life this year due to Covid. I won’t let them spoil Christmas, « she said.

« If I sent my children in the last week of the semester and had to isolate them, Christmas wouldn’t be the same as we couldn’t spend it with our family. « 

First Minister Mark Drakeford said schools were among the safest places for children during the pandemic.

The Caerphilly and Rhondda Cynon Taf councils plan to close schools a few days before the end of the school year. The schools in Blaenau Gwent will be the earliest schools in Wales to stop physical education nine days before the end of the semester.

She said that her children’s school is not a hub for the children of key workers, which has created a childcare problem.

« I understand the well-being of teachers and the well-being of students – nobody wants to self-isolate over Christmas, but my job doesn’t stop tomorrow, my husband’s job doesn’t stop tomorrow . . .

Daniel and Samantha Pearce said the news that their 10-year-old daughter Hazel would be home after Wednesday came « out of the blue ». .

Ms. Pearce, 34, a self-employed cleaning lady, said: « There will be parents who either cannot or want to ask for family help because they are afraid it will be them could give them Covid just before Christmas. « 

The Welsh government previously said its « priority » is to ensure that student education continues « with the least possible disruption ». .

The US President-elect says he cannot promise to end Covid quickly, but he can change course.
