As directed by the Government, provision will only be provided for pupils with Educational Health Care Plans, pupils who have social workers and for the children of key workers, from Monday 23rd March. We have been directed to close for all other pupils and not to fully reopen until instructed by the Government. To protect the health of all members of our community, if it is possible for your child to remain at home with you then they should. If you feel that you meet the Government’s criteria and you cannot access childcare please provide school with the following information below in the form provided:
1) Name of child(ren)
2) Reason for needing childcare (Key worker, EHCP, Vulnerable child)
3) Occupation(s) of parent(s)
4) Will before and after school care be required? Please state times
5) Will your child require a school lunch?
