Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you and your family are safe and well. This is not an easy time for any of us and we know that you will be adjusting to a different way of living.
Much like yourselves, we’re closely following the impact that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on our local communities.
We understand that many of you will be experiencing new and unexpected challenges during this difficult time particularly trying to meet the needs of your children and young people 24/7. We’re still committed to providing you with as much support as possible in this period of uncertainty but this is severely limited.
We take the health and wellbeing of our team seriously and, as such, we are now working from home so that we can continue to support you as best we can remotely.
We plan to produce a weekly bulletin where possible and will continue to post useful information on our website and social media accounts.
Additionally, we will be covering the landline and mobile telephone as well as emails. If you need any support please get in touch and we will try and signpost accordingly if we are unable to assist.
We are putting a list of resources together for this difficult time which will include activities that can be done at home, etc
