A letter from the Chair of Governors

We are living in difficult times at the moment where coronavirus infringes the health and well-being of us all.

On the subject of Covid-19, the school has received an anonymous complaint stating that two members of the governing body have been posting on social media viewpoints that many may agree with or disagree, but clearly are not the viewpoint of Laneshaw Bridge Primary School.

The governing body would never try to block freedom of speech, but governors understand that they need to abide by a code of conduct that should never bring the school into disrepute.

I have seen no evidence that any postings have come close to implying that these viewpoints are anything but personal opinions and I have asked the two individuals to be careful when posting in the future.

I hope this clarifies any misunderstanding that may have been circulating.

Mark Harrison
Chair of Governors
Laneshaw Bridge Primary School.
