Headteacher Simon Martin acknowledged the challenge of providing precise timelines for a full system restoration but expressed confidence in the support team’s ability to expedite the process.
While the attack has disrupted the availability of work completed by students during the holidays, staff members are aware of the situation and have reassured students that they need not worry if any work remains unfinished.
Debenham High School is a specialist academy affiliated with the Church of England and is committed to resolving the cyber attack’s impact on its IT infrastructure swiftly and securely.
