Information for Key Workers (Covid-19)
From 23rd March, schools were closed except to the children of Key Workers or Vulnerable Children.
It is better that children are not in school. We are keen to keep the numbers as low as possible to lower the risk of infection and maintain our provision.
Please don’t consider this a place for children to socialise – it isn’t.
Remember the message –
Stay home, Stay safe.
What will this care look like?
We are offering a safe place for your child in the event that you have no safe alternative. If they can stay at home, they must stay at home. Home is the safest place for children to be.
The provision we offer is vulnerable to closure should staff become unwell.
We will be maintaining distancing measures as much as we are able to. This means children will sit at separate tables and will be discouraged from touching one another, holding hands or sharing equipment (we are sensitive to family groups). We will continue to have stringent hand washing routines in place at key points during the day. Children will be asked to wash their hands upon arrival into school and at other key points throughout the day.
When you pick up and drop off you child, please observe sensible distancing from other parents and children.
What you need to do:
If you do require the provision, you must complete the Key Worker form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must also complete the booking form by 11.00am on the Friday of the week prior to the childcare being required.
Form for week beginning Monday 30th March:
Thank you for your help with this matter.
I am just touching base with all our families to see how you all are! I would like you to pass on my message of ‘well done’ to your children. I have heard from teachers that they are keeping in contact and doing the work which has been set. Please tell them that I hope their new ‘teachers’ are doing a good job too!!
I would like the children to know that this school is just not the same without them and it will definitely be waiting for them when we get the all clear to return.
I know it is only week one but keep going everyone and enjoy some of the sunshine too!
