Dear Parents/Carers,

In what are quickly becoming daily updates, I am writing today on a personal matter.

Due to a member of my household with an underlying medical condition now displaying some of the listed symptoms on the NHS website, I have taken what I feel is the prudent decision to follow the government guidance and self-isolate for 14 days along with my family.

I would like to say that I am not displaying any symptoms and feel absolutely fine in myself and will be working from home as usual. I will be in constant communication with school via the phone and email systems and, in my absence, Mr Western and Mrs Finlay will be point of contact.

It is very much business as usual as far as I am concerned, albeit from a slightly different location.

At time of writing an ‘imminent’ decision on schools is expected from the government. I will update you all further following any announcement.

Yours faithfully

Mark Gilronan
