As a nation we are all facing unprecedented times in relation to Coronavirus/COVID-19. We have taken the decision to postpone all Tykes TSA’s events until after the Easter holidays.

We know that school leaders’ main priority will be to keep their schools running and with staffing levels coming under pressure due to teachers and support staff having to self-isolate there is an imperative to ensure as few staff as possible are out of school at this time.

We have notified, via email, delegates who were booked on courses that they have been postponed. We will be in contact regarding future dates once these have been rearranged.
