Ballakermeen students to work from home due to staff absences

High levels of staff absence at Ballakermeen High School means some students will have to work from home this week.

Headteacher Adrienne Burnett has issued a letter to parents and carers, saying absence rates are exceeding 20%, and she doesn’t believe the situation will improve enough to have every year group in school.

Therefore, Year 8 will be asked to work from home tomorrow, Year 9 on Thursday, and Year 10 on Friday.

The school has also been reduced to five staff members to run two canteens, so food choices for those in school may be limited.
