Parents and carers who believe they are ‘Key Workers’

Schools will close from Monday 23rd March, except for children of key workers and vulnerable children

As you may be aware, the following statement was given by the government on Thursday 19th March in relation to school closure and the children of key workers as well as vulnerable children:

“After schools shut their gates on Friday afternoon, they will remain closed until further notice except for children of key workers and vulnerable children, as part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus.

Examples of these workers include NHS staff, police and supermarket delivery drivers who need to be able to go to work to support the country’s fight to tackle coronavirus. Vulnerable children include those who have a social worker and those with Education, Health and Care Plans – a legal document that describes a child’s special educational needs and the support they require.

Children who do not fall into these groups should remain at home with appropriate care.”

So that we can keep our Key Worker Support Programme under continuous review, we are asking any parents / carers who may be classified as a key worker to complete the short request form in this link:
