Provision for Children of Critical Workers

We have experienced increased demand for critical worker places during this lockdown. I ask you to only use this provision if when/necessary. We can only allow children who are the children of critical workers or are identified as vulnerable to attend school. If your situation changes or if you are working part-time, or from home, please do not send your child/ren to school on these occasions.

Can I please reinforce that the Government have strongly advised that, if you are able to keep your child at home, it is very important that you do so to limit the numbers of children in school. This is in order to try to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to other children; the wider community and my staff team.

Please see attached letter from Cllr. Keith Orrell (Exec member) and Amanda Hatton (DCS) about arrangements for schools in the current lockdown – in particular, provision for children of critical workers…
