Manchester incident: advice for schools and students

Dear colleague,

By now you will be aware of the appalling bomb attack in Manchester which has affected many families. On your behalf, I would like to offer our collective thoughts and prayers to members who schools are directly affected. At present, we do not know who they are but I am certain everyone of us would want to offer our support.

If your school is affected, please do let us know as soon as you are able and, in particular, please let me know how we might help.

For those schools with students sitting exams, Ofqual has issued the following advice: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/manchester-incident-advice-for-schools-and-students

Yours sincerely,

Mike Buchanan
