How to stay safe

Statement from Chair of Governors

As Chair of Governors for The Mount Stewarts Schools, I confirm that the Federation Leadership Team continues to share their plans for operating safely following all government guidelines.   These continued to be discussed with the full Governing Board and a number of questions raised by Governors are answered or taken away to be reviewed.  I can confirm that a thorough risk assessment and review process is in place and the outcome used to continue to refine the approach and safety measures put in place for staff, pupils and parents. Communication with parents will continue to be carried out based on this approach.  We continue to hold regular Governing Board meetings using online facilities and receive updates on the current situation in school, including attendance, safety, safeguarding and any concerns at those meetings as well as brief updates in between as required.
