Dear Parents and Carers,

All of our 27 schools will close their doors today for the traditional October mid-term

break. Given the stresses and strains associated with management of bubbles and the

attention to fine detail linked with risk assessments, hygiene and pupil and staff

wellbeing, it has been a period in school life like no other.

I want to thank you for your continued support and for your partnership since

September, this cooperation has ensured our children have been able to access such a

caring, nurturing and supportive learning environment.

As a trust, we are committed to supporting the community drive to eradicate the virus

and to this end, we would encourage parents, carers and visitors to our schools to

ensure where possible adherence to all social distance and face-covering guidance.

With the tier two restrictions in place, the traditional Halloween festivities will be limited,

however, I do hope that the break from school is enjoyed and I look forward to welcoming

everyone back safely on Monday 2 November.

Yours sincerely

Hugh Hegarty CEO
