Please see the attached message from the Director of Public Health and the Director of Children’s and Young People’s Services at the Local Authority. The message is a stark one but clear. Schools are not as safe as they were in September and the only thing we can do to make them safer again is to dramatically reduce the numbers of pupils attending in person. The new variant makes it much more likely your child will catch COVID from another child if they are in the same room as them and makes it much more likely they in turn will pass it on to other family members and friends. Therefore, you are urged to only send your child to school if absolutely necessary.
Thank you for your support with this.
