I’m writing to provide advice and guidance around the sad events that took place over the weekend.
We know that there will be a ripple effect for children and members of the community that may know these children and families – as such we’ve messaged all South Bristol settings. Please can you all be mindful of your community’s needs as they maybe saddened and frightened by events that have happened in physical and social proximity to the event.
We also know a number of your staff may have historically taught or had members of the children directly involved attend your settings.
There is no confidential or sensitive information contained in this message. Please feel free to share this with other colleagues who have not have received this and you feel this would benefit from the contents.
Communicate with your communities – both children and families:
We are minded on the potential for risk of retaliation and retribution.
We thank you in advance for your support and partnership during this difficult time.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like further advice and guidance.
