Updated 9 June 2020
The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. In response to the Prime Minister’s address to the Nation, we must ask that parents and carers continue to only access the emergency child care cover at the school if you absolutely have to and if there is no one else in your household, who is not a key worker, who can safely look after your child.
It is essential that we minimise the number of people accessing this emergency cover so that we can adhere to strict social distancing requirements, for the health and safety and wellbeing of the children and our staff.
What do I do if I need to access the emergency cover?
Correspondence is currently being undertaken directly with the school.
Please inform the school if your requirements change and you no longer need cover for the days you have booked.
What is a key worker?
‘Key workers’ are defined as those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response or those who work in one of the critical sectors listed below:
Health and Social Care
Education and Child Care
Key Public Service
Local and National Government (linked to COVID-19)
Public Safety and National Security
Utilities, Communication and Finance
Journalist and Broadcasters
Religious Staff, Charities and Workers delivering frontline services
