After the last few weeks’ hectic pace, things this week, in schools, have finally started to settle down.

However, most of our schools and organisations are still significantly affected by Covid outbreaks.

We’ve more children and young people having to self-isolate at home than at pretty much any point in the last 18 months.

As I’ve mentioned in several previously published blogs, our school leaders take guidance and advice directly from local public health teams and from Government policies.

They have limited choice and must follow very clear guidelines.

I’ve noticed, over the last few days, a definite change in the government’s attitude to children and “bubbles”.

We’ll await guidance – I really hope that the revised policy documentation will avoid the massive disruptions that we have faced over the last 12 months.

Every time we appear to be getting on top of the pandemic something else appears to happen.  It’s either a new “variant” or a change in the guidance.

Whatever the cause, we understand it’s incredibly disruptive and frustrating.

Let’s hope we get revised guidance before the children start to break up for the summer vacation.

Plans in all our schools are pretty much completed for September.

From our perspective our teams have worked incredibly hard to prepare the buildings, curriculum and personnel that will support the children and young people in September.

Over the next few weeks, the schools will send home any remaining details relating to next year.

If anyone has any concerns or queries, please feel free to contact us.

Please take care.
