Fairfields in the News
14 September 2020 (by admin)
Dear parents and carers,
You may have seen our school featured on the BBC news this evening. As a Headteacher, I rarely complain about our Government's decisions. At present I am concerned that there are difficulties getting a test which could jeopardise the safety of our school community.
At present we are not considering closing as we have only one staff member isolating pending a test result. Please be reassured that I am recovering from a cold and not COVID 19. I have sought advice from Public Health England and am able to return to work. I have had a challenging weekend trying to obtain a test as have a lot of families. This in turn had prompted me to contact the BBC. I felt it necessary to speak out about a National problem that so many of my colleagues are facing in silence. I do now hope that something will now be done to protect school communities.
If we do need to close in the near future, I will inform you as soon as this is being discussed. I would never inform you via the National Press.
Thank you for your continued support and I do look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Miss Kelly Dillon
