I have been pressing NCC for information about how council intends to tackle this viral infection threat.

We now have an extraordinary all members meeting after the council’s emergency committee meets tomorrow.  I hope this will give some answers to some of the questions I am getting.

 

I have also asked about what might happen if our schools have to close, especially in respect of school meals and exams.  Here is the initial response off our cabinet member for Children’s Services, for which I thank him.

 

 

  1. There is no HM Government directive YET to close our schools. This may happen in the next week or so but as it stands – they remain open.
  2. I have been involved with Children’s Services on Continuity Planning and asked for detailed plans to be put in place on some key areas of work with children.
  3. If schools are ordered to close we are developing plans for how we offer online learning portals.
  4. We are looking at how we can offer food/ meals to the most disadvantaged pupils who may be impacted over the loss of the school meals service. This detailed work includes how we can open kitchens, work with supermarkets and restaurants.
  5. We are awaiting information from the Dept. for Education on exams and how these are managed.
  6. Coms work is being prepared to manage messages over the coming week.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
