Dear Colleagues,

In these uncertain times I am sure you are all wrestling with key decisions and worrying how on earth we protect our vulnerable children and young people as well as the interests of our staff. The link below is from our friends in Special Schools Voice, Medicines in Special Schools (where I represent EQUALS), FLSE, NASEN, SSAT etc. represents our shared voice for our schools. If you have any thoughts, feedback, suggestions that you would like answers to I am happy for you to contact me directly on the following email address.

I appreciate there are still unresolved issues about opening over the Easter break and ultimately our School Leaders will do what is right for your children and young people. Keep supporting each other, please don’t judge anyone’s well intentioned actions and most importantly of all, stay safe.

Best wishes, Chris Rollings, EQUALS Chairperson.
