If you are a critical worker or have a vulnerable child, and you have been allocated a place at our school, can I ask that you email us your bookings for w/c 11th January by 10am on Friday.
Please send all bookings by Thursday each week for the following weeks care.
In line with government guidance, Empower Trust schools offer school places for vulnerable children and children of critical workers in the front line of the country’s fight against Covid-19 who have no other available child care options. It is important to stress that the government’s key message remains: If you are able to keep your child at home, you should do so. The longer people refrain from social distancing the longer this crisis will continue.
Schools take every precaution to ensure children’s safety and welfare whilst attending critical worker places. However, by the very nature of being in school with young children it is not possible to enforce social distancing – children are safer at home with their families.
Under government guidance, households with children under 14 can form a childcare bubble to allow one other household to provide informal child care between two households. Members of either household can provide childcare in a home or public place, including overnight care.
Thank you to everyone who is doing their best to keep our whole school community safe in these very worrying times.
