Childcare for Key Workers

We are currently looking at the practicalities of providing Emergency Childcare for the Easter holidays.  This is an unprecedented situation where our school is looking to support those critical or key workers, if-needed over the Easter holidays.


The Government have clearly stated:


Critical workers are defined as parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response, including those who work in health and social care and in other critical sectors.


However, many parents working in these critical sectors will be able to ensure their child is kept at home.


Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. 


So we can arrange the appropriate level of staffing in school for each day, could you please e-mail the school office stating which days you require childcare for. We would also be grateful if you could keep us updated if your circumstances change and you no longer require childcare.


Moving forward post Easter, we will continue to use e-mail as the line of communication for booking your child into school for the emergency childcare.  We will need to know by Wednesday each week if your child needs childcare for the following week in order for us to assess demand and arrange appropriate levels of staffing. 


In terms of home-schooling our staff are working hard at opening up lines of communication with the children and I know they are enjoying the opportunity to speak to the children again, albeit through a virtual world.  In addition to this, we continue to update the ‘Home Schooling’ section on our website with lots of ideas and resources to help you all.
