We hope you are looking forward to an Easter break if you are able to have one through these difficult times. Our staff and caseworkers have been working hard throughout this period, answering your questions, creating content and supporting new and ongoing cases.Over the Easter weekend, and the week following, from Friday 10th April to Sunday 19th April (inclusive) we will be operating slightly reduced operating hours from 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday – Friday.
We know that the Coronavirus pandemic will be a worrying time and you will be concerned about your role, income, family as well as supporting your pupils and wider school community. There will be a number of challenges faced across society over the coming months.
