COVID-19

20th March 2020
We appreciate that this information only applies to a small percentage of our school community and want to take this opportunity to
thank you all for your overwhelming support. You have all been amazing and we are so very grateful.

As per the confirmed government guidance, we will still be providing care on-site for children of parents/carers classified as ‘keyworkers’ and for those children deemed vulnerable.

Government guidance: If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
The government have now issued guidance on exactly which job roles fall into this category.
For those who meet the criteria outlined below, we are requesting that you follow the link- https://forms.gle/M3A58RdwKL89kFes8  confirming what role you are in as a key worker if you want to request a place in our on-site care provision. Please read the information
below before you determine if you are eligible for the on-site care.

 Health and Social Care
 Key Public Services
 Local and National Government
 Police
 Drivers
 Education and Childcare
 Food and other necessary goods
 Public Safety and National Security
 Transport
 Utilities, communication and financial services

If one parent is a key worker, they will have the option to have their child(ren) in school. If you can cater for your child at home (partner is not a key worker, older siblings etc.) then please do this.
If you are a single-parent key-worker, you will of course be able to send your child to school and we discourage anybody considering family members over the age of 70 being used to support with childcare.

For now, to enable us to proceed as efficiently as possible, we need anyone who meets the above ‘Key Worker’ criteria to confirm their role and if they require our on-site care, please follow the link  https://forms.gle/M3A58RdwKL89kFes8.

This needs to be completed as a matter of urgency before 12pm today, to see if we can offer a reduced hours service on-site care from next week.

Without this confirmation, we will assume that you have taken the decision to care for your child at home or are not eligible. If key workers think they fall within the critical categories above they should confirm with their employer that, based on their business
continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

Thank you all for understanding that this arrangement is for a limited group- our priority remains the protection of all those on-site, limiting the size of the gathering
