childcare for children of front line workers
19 March 2020 (by Shaun Hopwell (adminhead))
Schools have been instructed to provide childcare for the ‘most vulnerable’ and for children of ‘front line workers’. We are now working out how to make this happen.
Like all schools, we’re waiting for further guidance from the DFE. However, at this moment in time we know that:
Vulnerable pupils are those who: Have an education, health care plan; Is a ‘looked after child’ (eg in foster care or similar); Has a social worker
Front Line workers include: NHS staff, Police, delivery drivers (We expect the list of front line workers to be expanded and clarified over the next 24 hours).
PLEASE HELP US NOW If your child is ‘vulnerable’ as described above and/or you believe that you are a front line worker and you want to take up the child care provision PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO TELL US by 10am on Friday 20th March.
As soon as we have an idea of how many children we are expecting, we can plan to make it happen. Please let us know if you want to take up this offer by:
Phone: 01159652136 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will send you updates as soon as we have them
Kind regards Mr Hopwell – Headteacher
