School Closures: Key Workers
Further to yesterday’s update, the government have now provided details defining key workers. This group includes:
Health and social care
Education and childcare
Key public services
Local and national government
Public safety and national security
Utilities, communications and financial services
More detailed guidance is available on the link provided below:
If you believe you are a key worker and you are in need of childcare over the next two weeks, please may I ask you to fill in the form below. I would appreciate a prompt return, if possible by 2:00pm Friday 20th March so we can plan staffing levels accordingly.
It is very important to us that we can provide essential support to those who need it in this difficult time. As such, please may I ask that this provision is used only when working shift patterns and no other suitable childcare is available.
I understand this will be very challenging for families and I do thank you for your continued support.
