COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

As we continue to plan and manage our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Education Authority has introduced a number of initial, short term, important measures with immediate effect. These measures are in line with the recent government guidance and will ensure that we can continue to deliver essential education and support services as well as ensuring the health and safety of all of our staff.

Parents and Schools should keep up to date with the advice issued by the PHA which is regularly updated on their website.
