Mar 12 Covid-19 Information

In a letter to principals, the Chief Medical Officer has explained that “the recent closing of some schools was a decision made on public health grounds after a thorough risk assessment deemed it appropriate.  All other schools will remain open”.

The letter requests that mailing lists for parents are up to date so that schools are “in the position to share contact details with public health authorities carrying out contact tracing, if requested, as facilitated by GDPR regulations in the event of a public health emergency.”  Please contact the front office if you have recently changed your phone number or email address.
