Dear GMB Kingspark Member


We understand that many of you may be feeling anxious regarding the latest Covid-19 confirmed case in your school. This will be of a particular worry due to the additional support needs of the children you support, as well as for your own health and well-being and is entirely understandable.


We have had assurances that the correct protocols are being followed in conjunction with the health protection team and the school.


Your health and safety at work is of the utmost importance to us. Please contact your reps, Nadia or Angela in the first instance, or contact if you have any worries, queries, or want to share your experiences with us.


GMB will not compromise on your health and safety and if you haven’t already done so, please complete the survey issued yesterday, if you have not received a text or email please get in touch with our office to update your details: Tel: 07946675969 Email:


There will be further follow up surveys and communications and we would urge you to complete these. When you are involved as a GMB member and tell us your experiences it supports our arguments with the employer. You are the Union.
