From Monday 23rd May, the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. The Government has released the list of Key Workers this morning. The list shows which parents and carers are able to request a place in school from Monday. We aim to provide a daily school experience for as long as we can but this depends on a number of factors:
- The number of pupils who to take up the offer being sufficiently low
- The number of staff well enough to teach being sufficiently high
- Any future change of guidance from the government
However, in order to keep this going as long as possible, we are asking that your request to take up this provision is as a last resort and that wherever it is possible, your children stay at home. The government are clear in their action plan that the best place for your children is at home currently.
A list of all jobs that fall under the Key Worker eligibility can be found at the bottom of the link below:
Once you have studied the list of jobs, if either you or the other parent/main carer in the child’s main home works in any of the roles listed and you wish to register your interest in a school place, please contact the school office to complete a form. We must receive requests by 1pm today please. We intend to confirm our offer for a place at school by the end of the day today. Thank you.
