The Director of Community and Children’s Services to be heard.
The Director of Community and Children’s Services was heard relative to the COVID-19 update. The following points were noted:
A Member enquired about staff morale within the schools and it was confirmed that, whilst it was felt that many were pleased to be back teaching in the schools, staff were currently subject to stress resulting from the busy period before the end of the academic year, particularly in light of requirements to undertake assessments of students in place of exams. It was highlighted that efforts were being made by the schools to mitigate this wherever possible.
RESOLVED, that the update be received.
