We are in constant contact with Mr Hatchell's wife regarding his condition in hospital. We often have parents asking us on the gate in the morning about him, but we are aware that is only a limited number of parents.
Over the weekend, Mr Hatchell unfortunately became seriously unwell, and he underwent an emergency operation to reduce pressure on his brain. The doctors believe that they have stemmed the bleeding, and he is currently sedated in critical care. We understand that he is due to have further scans in the coming days.
Thank you to all of those parents who have sent their best wishes, we have passed these on to his family and they are very appreciative of the kind words from parents. We will continue to update you when we have any further news.
