The Chief Minister has issued the following statement following the resignation of Senator Tracey Vallois from her role as Education Minister:
It is with sadness that I can confirm that I have accepted the resignation of the Education Minister.
I would like to thank Senator Tracey Vallois for her hard work and commitment to the education and the welfare of our Island’s students, in particular her work on the reform and funding initiatives she successfully brought forward to the Government Plan.
Senator Vallois recently secured additional funding of approximately £42 million (over the four years of the Government Plan) for Education, and has also been seeking to implement further enhancement of the early years provision.
I know that this is an extremely difficult time for our whole school community but I would like to reassure everyone that the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our top priority and we will continue to keep the situation under constant review working with the health professionals.
A formal notice will be presented to the States Assembly by the next sitting of 19 January.
