We were contacted recently by RGA members struggling to balance instruction from the DFE to keep all schools open to keyworker and vulnerable children whilst acting as polling stations on 6th May. Risk assessments indicated the two activities were incompatible and governors were concerned to find solutions. Upon being contacted, members of the RGA board made enquiries on your behalf, including to Councillor Ashley Pearce, Lead Councillor for Education. Following a series of discussion we are pleased to report that solutions have been found for schools affected.
If your governing body has difficulties with similar issues in the future please contact us and we will use our connections to assist where possible.
