URGENT! – Cancellation of Website training sessions – 21st, 22nd, 23rd February,Gateshead CLC

Dear Healthy Schools Colleagues

Unfortunately we’ve just been notified today by the CLC that the Website training sessions this week will have to be cancelled.

Due to technical issues with the CLC, which they were having to deal with last week, this has created a backlog. As a result the training sessions are going to have to be re-arranged for sometime in March. Although the website is running fine, it is the Healthy Schools Network / Community of Practice element which the training sessions are focusing on, which they are currently having problems with.

We will be contacting each school individually that has booked a place and we will also be sending round a generic email to all those schools who have booked places to inform them of the cancellation.

We will be contacting schools once we have the dates rearranged.

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause but hopefully we will see you all at the rearranged sessions.

Kind Regards, Kirk & Don
